Spotlight….Julie Mitchell, Paradox Art Glass

One of the features that I want to make a regular around here is a spotlight on other artists.  There are so many people in the creative world that I admire; For their creativity, their work ethic and their willingness to give back to their community.  The first person I want to feature in this series is Julie Mitchell, of Paradox Art Glass.  She has one of the most generous spirits you can imagine, her glasswork is original and fun, and we haven’t even talked about her silk ribbons yet.  Oh my……

Silk ribbons from Paradox Art Glass

 

Okay, I admit it.  I have a little bit of a “problem”.  That hat box is 14 inches across, and 8 inches deep, and its filled to the top with ribbons of crinkle silk, dupioni, solid colors, water colors…and did you notice the tiny little packages??  She’s now making her beautiful cords in bracelet length!!  Perfect for us metal workers, and a fabulous way to give a really feminine flair to what can sometimes be an industrial looking piece.  I can see I’m going to have to find a whole new box for her newest product line, but with colors like these to tempt, can you blame me?

If you’re interested in seeing Julie’s art glass or purchasing some of her ribbons to have for your own use (’cause I sure ain’t sharing mine!  😀 ), visit her Etsy shop.
