âBut I've discovered a different term, Atupa, meaning "lamp" or "lantern", as I move into the next stages of my career (I'll talk about this in a future post or podcast, a lot has happened for me during the last few years) the work was transformed for me, as a object of light, a lantern a lamp in similar representation of say the DC comic superhero Green Lantern. An object of power, and a Battery of Will.
I want to shift my work into these objects after I finish a few more of my Inspire Pieces. Below you can see some images staged in my apartment and my Instagram post showing my progression for this peice over the last 2 years, as well as livestream links on my design process, utilizing my latest acquisition of a methodology for glass solder, which Ed Kirshner and I discuss for an upcoming workshop at the Pittsburg Glass Center this summer.
Feel free to share, comment, and subscribe.
As always Be Safe, Be Informed, and Be Curious, and Iâll See you next time.
