4th Friday Prescott Art Walk
“Handmade Glass Beads and Felt” features art by artist Patricia Tyser Carberry.
Lampworking is a type of glasswork where a torch is primarily used to melt the glass. Once in a molten state, the glass is formed by blowing and shaping with tools and hand movements. The pieces are then kiln-annealed for five hours or more. Annealing the beads makes them hard as rocks; durable for everyday wear.
Patricia Tyser Carberry has been working in glass most of her life. She began creating custom, one-of-a-kind and limited edition stained glass windows for commercial and residential establishments. After attending a workshop on fused glass, she became intrigued by working with glass in its molten state which led to her interest in beadmaking and continued exploration into playing with light. Using soft materials like silk and wool are a perfect counterpoint.
A reception for the artist will be on Prescott’s 4th Friday Art Walk (October 25th) from 5-8 pm, at the Arts Prescott Cooperative Gallery.
Refreshments will be served. Show runs October 25 – November 20. Open Daily 10 am – 6 pm.
