Paula Hayes will unveil a series of hand-blown glass comets, alongside a selection of her silicone planters, resin birdbaths, and patinated gnomes, as well as her series “Barnyard Animals Banquet”. A selection of her Terraria Collection will also be on display. These giant terrariums filled with recycled glass, mica, and other unexpected materials are an homage to earth art.

Randy Polumbo will present several mixed media objects that combine the mesmerizing with the dystopian. New works highlight his recent explorations with fungi as a sculptural material. Also on view will be grotto miniature “Curiosity”, a handheld hypnotic micro-universe. This hand-hammered, polished aluminum interior of a rocket launcher case generates a spatial distortion wherein it’s sculptural elements of crystalline planets and hand-blown glass appear larger than life.
