Glassworks by Karen Bexfield.

My introductory solo exhibition is a little like a tasting menu. I’m presenting small intimate groupings of a lot of different glasswork I have created using my kiln-formed technique. I’ll be showing my cubes, eclipse/moon pieces, vessel pieces, wall pieces, and sculptural works.   When ice melts it implies heat is present. That’s evocative of my work, the appearance of solid ice pulling apart in the melting process. A reflection of nature’s organic patterns: a balance of simple geometry and pure chance. The interplay of color, shape and movement speaks to the raw yet unpredictability of nature. Karla Winterowd makes the point that “Karen Bexfield has a unique, clear vision about her work. Her sculptures are delicate in appearance but strong in form, they capture life’s spontaneity. Karen Bexfield is the 2013 American Style NICHE Award winner in the category of cast and slumped glass. Please join us for a reception from 5 -7 pm on Friday, May 10, Karen Bexfield will be present. For additional photographs and information, please contact Rosanne Kadis at 505.992.8878 or to see more:
