Oregon Myrtle Wood artisan bowl with azul filler embedded to accent the knot and grain by Mike Brown. 

Myrtlewood grows only along the Pacific Coast in Oregon, to San Diego and Klamath mountains and along the west slope of the Sierra Nevada. Wood artist Mike Brown  forages for Myrtlewood from trees downed by winter storms.

Surprisingly, these nests take a considerable amount of time to create. I first cut a lot of tiny strips of glass of varying lengths and colors, assembled them to look like twigs and fired them in my kiln.  Then the “twigs” were layered flat to resemble how a bird might have built its nest.  The assemblage is fired again to meld all the “twigs” together.  Then, finally, the entire nest is fired for the third time in a mold to create the bowl shape of the nest. It was a long process but fun to see the nests take shape!  In fused glass, you can’t ever get a completely round shape since fusing is done on a flat kiln shelf.  So, I spent some time trying different elements to take the place of nest eggs and decided on tumbled agate stones, or chalcedony.  I think they complement the glass nests. –-Carolyn Myers Lindberg

 

“Sandpipers” watercolor by Paul Brent

At Seaside estuary along the Necanciium River, flocks of many thousands of the Western sandpipers can be sighted swirling around over shallow water, landing to feed, before resuming migration. Their tightly coordinated escape flights are breathtaking to observe.

“Red and Black Circles” geometric reversible bamboo fiber scarf 73″L  by Bonnie Garlington

Bonnie Garlington textile artist

I am a Northwest fiber artist specializing in handwoven scarves.  My collection includes tartans, colorful casual styles and scarves with one-of-a-kind tapestry details. My scarves are woven in a variety of fibers including silk, Tencel, bamboo, and chenille; and many are accented with novelty yards and ribbons. The weave structures are equally varied including twills, lace weavers, supplemental warps, and pick-up designs, inlaid details, and special handling of fibers to produce intriguing textures.  Color, texture, structure, and pattern, I enjoying weaving it. –

A plaid scarf handwoven by Bonnie Garlington in luxuriously soft chenille, a wonderfully wearable alternative to wool. 

 

In addition to scarves, I also weave small tapestries framed for the wall.  Inspiration for my abstract designs comes from sources as varied as a collection of cloisonné enamels, the play of color in an opal, the twinkle of lights across the bay at midnight, or from my own personal response to natural or societal events.  For example, I have woven small tapestries in response to the devastating tsunami in Japan, in support of the Wetlands Conservancy, or inspired by Lake Oswego Read’s yearly book selection. I have been weaving a variety of textiles for more than 30 years. –-BMG

“And, too, I have woven tartans for more than 75 clans.”  BMG

To make the nest, I started by creating the bases with metallic gold and green fusible paint.  I used a candle and then later a blowtorch to heat and bend thin glass “stringer” and layered them on the panel in the form of a nest.” CML

I added frit (crumbled glass) to add texture and depth.  Some of the nests have a couple of other colors of stringer or frit tucked in to represent other materials found by our feathered friends to pad their nests. The nests are tack fused to about 1350 degrees. The eggs are cut and shaped separately and full fused to 1490 degrees.” Carolyn Myers Lindberg

BE OUTSIDE WITH BIRD’S NESTS

NW friends agree to share a recent nesting backstory

I noticed the flowers moving in the hanging flower basket. Sure enough, a junco flew out. I grabbed my copy of Karen Roehm DeWitz’s book, Look at That Bird! (*****), she wrote about how juncos will sometimes make their nests in hanging flower baskets.

I peeked at the nest and found 3 naked birds curled up inside. 

A few days later…

I’m an empty nester already! That was fast.  I suspected something when I hadn’t been hearing or seeing the mom and pop around the nest since yesterday sometime. I wish I had been able to see the fledglings.

FLASH!  I think I found them.  I heard a bunch of “ticking” in a bush across the yard and saw a small brown bird on a branch, streaky breast and no hood yet, and it still had the yellow gape (thanks Karen) and the right kind of beak.  There were two adults hovering nearby so I think that’s my family!

UPDATED UPDATE:  I just saw one of the little babies again on the ground and this time the pop was feeding it. They still need some help from their parents.  –Pat Wollner

Karen Roehm DeWitz to PW:  They’ll be fed by the parents on the ground for a while yet. Enjoy the show!

PW:  Do they go back to the nest at night or sleep in the trees somewhere with the folks?

KRW: Once babies fledge, that’s usually it for the nest. It’s actually a super dangerous place for baby birds (they’re all together, and predators can watch mom and dad coming and going), so it’s best for them to get out ASAP. After that, the parents help them find a safe spot to roost at night. The babies may not be able to fly yet, so keep an eye on pets.

PW: They are actually flying, sort of. I suspect they came out of the nest sometime this morning and I didn’t find them until late this afternoon. They flit around in the low bushes and hop around on the ground. There was a juvenile Cooper’s hawk on the roof of my garage yesterday and usually the crows are all over the place so it is a dangerous place like you said.

Book Review:
This book would make a beautiful gift for someone who loves birds and nature, someone who is just starting out birdwatching or someone who already birdwatches but is interested in birds from the Pacific Northwest.


Although this book is aimed at the younger birdwatcher I think this book would be great for all ages! I certainly enjoyed it!

Also in pictured in the PLACE-BASED display are double faced masks by textile artist Peggy Evans, signed handmade berry dish and plate by pottery maker Marilyn Cohn, and painted river rock in a sea star theme by Seaside artist Kandy Swartz. 

Christine Trexel became interested in hand paper making, book binding, and box making as an extension of her lifelong love of books.

Artist statement:

“My interest in book binding and box making originated as a part of my lifelong love of books.  I believe that a day which passes without a book having been in my hands, in some form, is an incomplete day.” 

I use decorative paper, book cloth, book board, brass, and high quality print paper in making my boxes often incorporating images embossed, printed, or adhered to the covers.  Every element of the construction of the books and  boxes is done by hand, including hand sewing the pages of the book.CT

An exhibition that involves a focus on the importance and uniqueness of place. 

While selecting the artworks to local context will appeal to the summertime tourists and visitors, behind the exhibit is an understanding that fosters regional artists and their connection within the community. The exhibit doubles down on a link with the history of both place and keeping close tabs on how artists are based in visual story telling.

17-68 vase

A technique known as drop-out which was used to create this hand made vase by carefully managing heat, time and gravity to stretch and shape glass in a kiln. A technique that  was combined with strip-construction to create a dramatically patterned piece in the colors of red, white, blue, black and purple.   Bob Heath, glass artist

9-60b

My primary technique is fused glass, but that covers a broad range. I am mostly known for strip-construction work that features geometric patterns with bright colors, strong lines and sharp contrasts. Very often my intricate designs require the creation of multiple component pieces that are fused separately and then cut, shaped and fused together to create the wholeMy work is typically very colorful and often features geometric patterns with strong lines and sharp contrasts. Edges and rims are cold-worked and polished to give them a professional finish.

“My engineering background expresses itself in my glass artwork, both in terms of design influence and in the precision and attention to detail that I strive for in my glass creations.

I have active part of the Oregon glass community, serving on the board of directors of the Oregon Glass Guild since 2005, and as its state president.

Oregon is home to many glass artists, due in large part to the presence of several of the world’s major manufacturers of raw art glass materials and numerous glass schools.

Bob Heath has had the opportunity to study with many of the leading artists in the field including; Avery Anderson, Patty Gray, Marty Kremer, Richard LaLonde (a cousin of the gallerist), Peter McGrain, Robert Oddy, Stan Price and Raphael Schnepf.

I really enjoy working with the process of fusing glass and like to try and accomplish things beyond the ordinary. My work is carefully planned, starting out as a detailed drawing. I  try out multiple variations on each idea and to think through the steps that I will use to implement the design in glass. The complexity of the design requires that I start by creating multiple individual components that are fused separately, and then cut and shaped before ultimately being fused together to create the whole. After the work is fused, it is cold-worked to achieve a professional finish on the surface and edges that brings out the inherent beauty of the glass.  Bob Heath, glass artist
