"Urban/Suburban"

These colourful glass pieces are by Canadian artist Don McClennen and are part of his "Urban/Suburban"series which is on display now at the Craft Ontario Shop (formerly the Guild Shop) on Cumberland Ave in Yorkville. Each individual building is made of multiple layers of glass which have been cut to shape and then fused together in a kiln and then carefully cooled. I love them!

A collection of these would be pretty cool!

A friend gave me a pendant which represents a Cornish beach hut and it's the same shape as the big blue one in the background!

Brings to mind the saying about glass houses. :-)

Now this is the kind of "modern" art that I like. It makes sense, it's colorful and charming!

Ooooohhhh, these are wonderfully colorful.

(When are you going to show some of your work?)

BTW, the responses to my post of the $4M "cottage" were interesting. Many thought that is very expensive, but those from London and Toronto thought it cheap!
