Mon Jan 24, 2022 7:00pm - Floor Kaspers ** Rebroadcast **
Once again, we are teaming up with Grand River Bead Society to bring you a presentation from international glass artist Floor Kaspers. Floor will be talking to us from the Netherlands, so we had to take the time zone into consideration when scheduling this talk.
Thinking outside the box.
In her presentation, Floor will share with you her process of designing and creating her larger beadwork pieces, including her 2020 winning Battle of the Beadsmith piece. She will go into design aspects that are unlike any type of standard jewelry or beadwork design. She will also explain her process of picking and mixing colors.
Floor Kaspers is a Dutch glass artist, beadworker and bead researcher. She started out as a sculptor in stone and bronze. Today, 25 years later, even her jewelry pieces still look like sculptures, even though they are made from many tiny components. She captures nature and the color shifts in nature in glass art, installation pieces and beadwork. Most of her pieces takes months of work, resulting in intricate pieces that show different ways that glass and beads can be used. She has recently started working in ceramics.
