April marks the release date of Maria V. Snyder‘s newest book, Storm Glass. The main character in this book is a glass artisan, so I decided to choose a glass artist to represent the Artist of the Month for April. But then I thought, “What if my readers decided who the artist would be?” So I’m giving you guys the chance to vote on who should be the featured glass artist for April. Just leave a comment letting us know your choice and feel free to let us know why. Then, on April 1st, I’ll announce the new Artist of the Month as chosen by you!
The choices to pick from are:
Louise Tait – a glass artist from the UK who creates sculptural pieces using cast glass
Nancy Allen – a PA Guild juried member from Yardley, PA she uses fused glass to create vessels and sculptures
Paul Stankard – a creator of exquisite paperweights in Mantua, NJ
Karen LaMonte – a New York artist who creates sculptural works that mimic flowing fabric
Barry Entner – works in a variety of glass techniques in the Hudson Valley
These are just a few of the many glass artists out there, so if you have another artist you would like to vote for, feel free to add their name to the pool. Make sure to include a link to their website in your comment though. It’s up to you guys now, so get cracking and vote for April’s Artist of the Month!
