|A Gorgeous necklace by Angela Sirrs from the Art by the Lighthouse Show 2011|
I am always amazed by artisans who use kilns or fire to create their craft. There's something dangerous and spellbinding about it.

Note how close the Niagara River is.
Perfect for dipping one's feet on a hot day.
Believe me. We did.

I took part in Summerfest's "Art in the Park" this year, on July 19th, 20th, 21st and 22nd 2012.
I was quite happy to see Angela and Fred there, with some gorgeous new work.

|A new GlassScape Pendant Summer 2012|
|This pendant has texture and a hand painted tree for extra detail.|
You have to see these dichroic glass pieces in person.
I was thinking about the name Dragonfly Designs, and how the glass is like one of those beautiful insects, darting and flickering and iridescent in the light. Each one is alive!

|What a beauty!|
If you are interested in seeing some of these pieces in person, please come by the Art by the Lighthouse show on August 5th and 6th in Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario. It's going to be another great show down by the river!
