In the evening on Thursday, March 9th, artist Dante Marioni will be speaking at the Craft in America Center and giving an up close and personal look at his recent work in the artist's first visit to Los Angeles since 1996. The son of pioneering studio glass artist Paul Marioni, Dante studied at Pilchuck Glass School with the guidance of master artists Lino Tagliapietra and Benjamin Moore. Dante developed his own language and approach to glass that melded classic forms to a modern sensibility. His works are included in major museum collections worldwide.

RSVP for this free talk: rsvp@craftinamerica.org
An artist's reception will be held before the talk at 6pm.

Ingrid – Beautiful

Ingrid - Her voice from the past is revealed through the layers of Forensic Reconstruction.

She is 41-47 years old and was found at the excavation 'Hole in the Market' in Vlaardingen , Holland. She died approximately 1100 years ago. The goal of reconstruction is to take a skull of an unknown person and recreate the face so that the person can be identified. So many times, people are lost and their bones are discovered under suspicious circumstances or maybe found after thousands of years. By using the reconstruction process, their musculature is recreated and it is possible to discover what they looked like and who they are after the final touches to the skull. This sculpture shows the beginning and the end of the process in another form of art – thread painting. I have applied over seventy colors of thread to the sculpture, bringing her to life. The blending of the colors is integral to the process.

This art is framed with a fabric matte. The quilt has exposed raw edges, allowing the viewer to see the layers of the quilt. The ragged edges echo the passage of the years since Ingrid passed away. Ingrid is now alive through this thread painting for all to see.

Ingrid – Beautiful

Ingrid  - Her voice from the past is revealed through the layers of Forensic Reconstruction.  

She is 41-47 years old and was found at the excavation Hole in the Market in Vlaardingen , Holland. She died approximately 1100 years ago.  The goal of reconstruction is to take a skull of an unknown person and recreate the face so that the person can be identified.  So many times, people are lost and their bones are discovered under suspicious circumstances or maybe found after thousands of years.   By using the reconstruction process, their musculature is recreated and it is possible to discover what they looked like and who they are after the final touches to the skull.

Jennifer Day - Art Quilter added 8 new photos to the album: Branding at Day Ranch — in Vaughn, New Mexico.

Branding day at the ranch is a day of hard work. The United States government requires, by law in all 50 states, that all newborn calves be branded. This is a tradition that dates back to othe 1800's. Occasionally, a calf gets away as you can see in one of the pictures. The two cowboys were dragged as they tried to catch the cow! We branded 142 calves that day. My ranch manager, Amanda, gathered people from adjoining ranches to help. These cowboys and cowgirls will travel to another ranch each week to assist in brandings for no pay. This is tradition. I was in the pens with my camera, trying not to get run over by a fast horse! We will have 300 calves born this year in New Mexico.
