So much to do and so little time!

I love to visit studios where creating something out of a simple material is the norm wether it be glass, clay or paint.  It has always been a place of wonder and possibilities in my mind. Two studios I love to visit are Superior Hot Glass and Brickstudios and this weekend I will have work at both studios.

Superior Hot Glass is located at 1588 E. 40th St. just off Superior in Cleveland, Ohio.  The studio is having their annual open studios and will have guest artist's selling work and ongoing glass blowing demonstrations.  The days and hours for this event are Saturday December 2nd 10am-7pm & Sunday December 3rd Noon - 5pm.
The studio is tucked behind the Shovelworks building (1558 E. 40th.)  http://superiorhotglass.com/

Waterloo studios will be open for first Friday, December 1st and you can find my hearts along with many other artisan works at Brickstudios located 420 E. 161 St. in Cleveland, Ohio.  Brick Holiday Sale will have a first look preview Friday Dec. 1st 6-9pm through January 6th.  Regular hours are Monday 5-9pm and Wed. & Sat. Noon-4pm.  Check out the many other galleries in the area for events and times.  https://www.facebook.com/WaterlooArtsDistrict/

I hope to see you at one of these events and if you and some friends would like to stop by the studio please email and we can set up a time.  tyondo@windstream.net

November 2017 Studio, Class info. and Shows

Greetings from Concept to Creation, the studio of Theresa Yondo.

The cold has arrived in the Northern Hemisphere here in Novelty, Ohio.  Gardening is nearly laid to rest and thoughts turn to staying warm and keeping the light on until the daylight returns.  The lack of daylight can easily put me into a drunken stupor figuratively speaking.  This seems to be a good time to relearn wood firing techniques.  The image above is the kiln on Brinsley Tyrrell's property.  Last week I met the crew and helped out with the firing.  We will be unloading on Thursday and I will have work in the next kiln.  I look forward to adding this activity to my world of ceramics
