FEATURE EXHIBITION

Steph Mader - fused glass landscapes
layered beauty in three dimensions

July 6 - 30


OPENING RECEPTION
Saturday, July 6 from 5 - 7pm
during Langley’s First Saturday Art Walk

Early Winter Marsh - fused glass - 17 x 4 x 6” - $1,225

Whidbey Island is home to many remarkable glass artists. One of these is Steph Mader, whose luminous fused glass landscapes catch the eye of almost every visitor to the gallery.

Through the Valley
fused glass - 17 x 8 x 6” - $2,800

Solitude
fused glass - 13 x 8 x 6” - $1,500

Each piece is created layer by layer from tiny particles of powdered glass, fused after each layer to give a three dimensional effect. Starting with the distant hills and faraway clouds, then the planes of the middle ground, followed by the details in the foreground, Mader carefully constructs her images to catch the light and bring out the brilliant colors of the glass. Most of her works will have from five to ten layers by the time they are done.

Rise Above - fused glass - 17 x 7 x 6” - $1800

Red Mesa
fused glass - 17 x 4 x 6” - $1,225

Steph’s inspiration comes from the serene beauty of her natural surroundings: “When I'm in quiet, remote places, away from the stimulation of machines and crowds, alone with just the sounds of birds and wind, I have a deeper experience of myself as a living being, connected to the natural world.”

Mader expresses this connection through her unique sculptural glass works that have to be seen in person to be fully appreciated.

Path Trough the Dunes
fused glass - 9 x 6” - $725

First Snow
fused glass - 9 x 6” - $725

Summer Fields - fused glass - 17 x 8 x 6” - $1,800
