The Rembrandt Tulip, with Craig Mitchell Smith

January 17-19, 2022. 9am-5pm.

Craig will supply each student with a custom forming tool for use during class and at home. Diamond carving, unique texturing, silk screen powder printing, complex draping and sandblasting are among the techniques students will learn and use to create this stunning piece. Assembly includes a custom stainless-steel mount.
 

ABOUT THE ARTIST

As a self-taught artist, my curiosity and creativity have taken me in many directions over the years. I am a painter; I have done interior and garden design throughout the U.S., set design for local theaters and floral design. I have also designed weddings throughout the U.S. and in England. In late 2005, I found glass. I started with making glass jewelry, but soon felt limited by the size and dimension. I moved quickly to glass sculpture because I liked the freedom of expression and scale. For me, the transparency of glass is a metaphor for memory. Even though the glass sculpture or design stays the same, if you move around the piece, or change the direction of the light or its intensity, you can change the memory. My designs often include the interplay of glass, light and water and range from garden sculptures to sculptural drawings, to portraits in glass, to wall hangings.
