Happy New Year News!

Happy New Year to Everyone!
We hope this new year that launched with a Full Moon is ringing in wonderfully for you!  For us this year marks 25 years of collaboration.  Thank you for your ongoing support and appreciation of us and our work; we could not continue our exploration and discovery without you!

We’re excited to announce we have a feature article in Glass Art Magazine, to accompany our podcast from October 2017.  Check out newsstands, bookstores or order direct from Glass Art Magazine!

On the Cover!      Jan/Feb issue 2018


Celebrating 25 Years of Collaboration @ Bainbridge Island Museum of Art
June 23 – September 30, 2018
Private Preview Party, Members & Donors, Friday, June 22, 6:30 – 9 p.m.
Public Opening, Saturday, June 23, 2 – 5 p.m.
Artists’ Party, Saturday, June 23, 6-9 p.m. (We’ll post this invitation with RSVP at a later date.)

Mark your calendars!  Fly in for a visit!  Curated by Greg Robinson, who has tracked nearly our entire collaborative history, this overview of our work will showcase our innovation in storytelling and presentation using glass as our primary medium.  Our first collaborative venture took place in 1993 with an auction donation to Pratt Fine Arts Center.  We thrived on the interaction; our piece fetched its value; and before we knew it we were entirely engaged collaboratively.

Twenty-five years later with our work among museum, private and public collections nationwide, we continue to innovate and create.  And today, Jenny is serving as the president of the board of Pratt and Sabrina is working as chair of the Pratt’s auction committee.  Who knows what the next 25 years will bring!


Gallery Representation

Hats off to our galleries, most notably Duane Reed of Duane Reed Gallery and his partner Glenn Schrivner, who offered us our first national exposure through SOFA Chicago in 2001!  We have added a Galleries page under Profile in this site.  Review it to see the work we have on display at locations near you and support your local galleries!


Reminder:  Making Our Mark @ Bellevue Arts Museum through April 15th

Don’t miss this unbelievable testament to the talent of instructors who have taught at Pratt Fine Arts Center during the last 40 years.  Michael Monroe curated and orchestrated works in every imaginable medium by nearly 300 artists into a seamless river of creativity.  Truly a profound experience.  How did he do it?  He’s Michael Monroe!

Podcast Interviews with Shawn Waggoner, editor, Glass Art Magazine

We were invited on two occasions in the last couple of months to interview with Shawn, editor of Glass Art magazine since 1985, who began the podcast ‘Talking Out Your Glass’ in 2017.  Her accompanying article on us will be published in Glass Art’s January| February 2018 issue.

In the first podcast we are interviewed with National Liberty Museum  director Meegan Coll, who launched Transparency, the nation’s first glass exhibition of works from the LBGTQ+ community, along with Tim Tate, fellow participating artist.  You can access the podcast HERE.

Our second interview took place just a couple of weeks ago and is included in her ‘Pioneers in Glass’ archive.  We talk about our early experiences, travels and their influence in our work, what makes our collaboration successful, how we work independently within our collaboration and other things.  You can access this podcast HERE.

Thank you, Shawn, for these opportunities to tell our stories!

LODESTAR 2nd Opening @ Schack 10/15!

Sending our very best wishes as we collectively navigate new waters and unexpected storms literally and metaphorically.  These are curious and difficult times!  If you need an escape, let us tell you what we have been up to:

We have been busy!  Working through Spring and Summer to launch our solo installation/exhibition in Schack Art Center’s beautiful 1000 + sq. ft. exhibition space with 16 detailed sculptures including image, glass and steel fully engaged our senses and now, after four days of installation, our show is on, having opened last Thursday with the Harvest Moon.  

We have added a second opening on Sunday, October 15, 2 – 5, and will host a walk-thru/discussion beginning @ 3.  Contemplating our minimal use of color in these works and backing several with the color of midnight, we have stories & discoveries to share.  And we invite your discoveries as you experience this unique installation that includes revisits to our earliest collaborative efforts and our latest work with image in blown glass.

No RSVP necessary … hope to see you and please spread the word!

PS.  You can access our Artist Statement for Lodestar here

Happy New Year and so much more …

We Marched.  We …

Resolute, united and kind, we marched, slowly walked actually  … 175,000 of us, no incident of violence witnessed, no voice of hatred heard …
citizens of our United States of America, defiant.

Big thank you to the Duane Reed Gallery team – Duane, Glenn, Merrill and Ethan – for the fabulous installation of our show Second Wind that opens tonight, which is why you have not heard from us in awhile!  Clicking on our show title accesses an on-line catalog – thanks Duane and Glenn for that, too!

This very new work originated with Sabrina’s desire to reveal the emotional element of our portraiture of Himba women – whom we met in 2008 in northern Namibia – in blown glass.  She came to this decision after living with their portraits in our studios for several months upon our return from a two-month journey to South Africa, Botswana and Namibia.

“Art AIDS America is an epic and a national treasure. “  Jen Graves, The Stranger, 10/07/15

“I have never been to a show where I have wanted to read everything.  Suddenly, it was closing time … I couldn’t believe I had been there that long.”  Jeanne Brennan

Rock Huschka, lead curator of Tacoma Art Museum, has been working on this show for a decade with his co-curator Jonathan David Katz.  Arts AIDS America is a gathering of artworks that tell the story of the reality and horror of death in America in the 80s and 90s, and is a vision Hushka had as an art student in the 80s.  It is a must-see.  Closing date:  1/10/16

Show your support of this critical and vital exhibition here.
