Glass artist, Joan Bazaz’s work will be on display at the Miller Library in February.
Bazaz creates art pieces from a process she has developed using crushed glass with copper wire and small glass bits embedded in layers of glass. She begins by drawing in her North Seattle garden and then takes the drawings to her glass studio to interpret them into glass.
The work shown at Miller Library is a new body of work inspired by botanical drawings started in 2012 in her home garden and the Volunteer Park Conservatory.
Bazaz’s artwork will be on display at the Miller Library from February 2 – 27. Join us for an artist reception February 7th from 5-7pm.
This month we are featuring urban farming books in the display case at the Miller Library. Come take a look!
Exhibit runs January 2 through January 30.
In the botanical world, grafting is the joining of the tissues of two different plants for a interesting, pretty, or beneficial outcome. Creating multiple exposure images is similar to grafting. Grafted is a series of multiple exposure and digital composites of the botanical world in an attempt to draw in the viewer, giving them pause, and inspiration on the beauty of the natural world.
Brendan is a photographer, writer, and naturalist based in Seattle, Washington.
