I am just finishing up my work for a exhibit of glass art of mine that will be taking place at the Maryhill Museum of Art in Goldendale Washington. http://www.maryhillmuseum.org/2013/maryhill-museum-of-art-announces-2014-special-exhibitions The exhibit will be from March 15th thru November 15th 2014. I am very excited about it to say the least.
This is one of the new works which will be in the exhibit. Its been something I have had in mind for 8 years, since I was Artist in Residence at Pilchuck Glass School. Finally I was able to make this and some other works which have been in my brain for a long time wanting out.
What this represents is a medicine bundle containing a golden eagle. I don't like to make actual "Medicine" items ( I take these things serious ) unless they are going to the proper place and people. So…this is merely a representation of what one might be. It is not a copy of a existing bundle nor meant to be so. It is a artistic rendition.
Normally the tube parfletche would be rawhide so you would not see what was contained inside. I wanted to make the container a suggestion and focus on the contents.
Hope some of you out there can come and see the show :-)
