REVISION: I initially thought that the dates for the 2008 calendar year aligns with the 2013 calendar year. Unfortunately, because of leap year, not all the months align. However, I am still selling the calendar for it’s artwork purposes. These are museum quality images that can be beautifully framed and are available for $7 which includes shipping. Thank you.
- A full-size 13 month wall calendar that celebrates leading glass artists and their remarkable pieces. Each month, the 12×12 calendar features a different glass artist with vibrant full color images of his or her work, including detailed descriptions of the art and the artist. The museum-quality calendar captures the great variety and artistry of these extraordinary glass creations, including glass beads, jewelry, objects and sculptural pieces.The Glass Art Calendar featured remarkable glass creations including glass beads, jewelry and objects and sculptural pieces by many of the leading artists in the field today, as well as emerging artists (Tink Martin, Carter Seibel, Beth Williams, Lisa Niven Kelly and Michael Barley, Judy Carlson, Jeff Barber, J.C. Herrell, Jennifer Geldard, Sarah Moran, Lucie Kovarova-Weir, Dustin Tabor and Stephanie Sersich, Eric Rader and Kristina Logan).
I still have some extra 2008 calendars in stock which I would love to see being enjoyed by others. The calendar retailed for $14.95 in 2008 and I am offering it for $7.00, which includes media mail shipping. The images of the calendar are museum quality and very suitable for framing and would look beautiful hanging in your studio, home, bead shop, workshop or where ever your heart desires, these images would be perfect. The Glass Art Calendar was sold in retail lampworking supply shops and several museums, such as the Toledo Museum of Art and Corning Museum of Art to name a few.
I had an amazing team to help bring my calendar vision to life. For graphic design, my dear friend and amazing artist, Kathy Milillo.
For photography, the principal photographer of the calendar was the very talented Jewelry and Fine Art photographer, Robert Diamante. And lastly, but not least, Queen City Printers in Burlington, Vermont for printing a beautifully high quality calendar.
For those who are interested in purchasing a calendar, you will be able to find them listed in my etsy shop. They are stunning, you won’t regret the purchase!
