Gabriola Studio, Gabriola Island, BC, Canada
This site is a collaborative effort of art, craft, jewelry, and lifelong learning. There is a gallery of stained glass, mosaics, and fused glass with Dar Mace, Big Love Jewelry & Art with Hayden Harvey, The Weston Labyrinth, a two year mosaic garden project completed in October, 2010, and a page of related interests and inspirations. There is also a link page that gives contact information to other individuals' works and interests. This site comes out of a desire to explore and expand the concept of an artist's website and reflect the creative processes; not only the finished 'products'. It is an attempt to 'connect the dots' and demonstrate how our worlds constantly overlap and influence each others'. The web of computer technology is both an inspiring vehicle and effective medium for increased comprehension and integration of these colourful fabrics of our lives. The intention here is to give some glimmers of those reflections, give heightened visibility and viability to various artists and their work, and increase environmental awareness through lifelong learning.
Please feel free to contact Dar Mace for any further information.
BIG LOVE Jewelry & Art
Funky, fun, fashionable jewelry. Sparkling combinations of fused glass, precious stones, found objects, antique jewelry...the list is a continuous journey of the imagination's 'findings'. BLJ&A wants you to feel Big Love and share it with others!
