Diana Branscome, stone blues necklaceOur gifted jeweler and talented glass fusion artist Diana Branscome will be C’ville Arts Cooperative Gallery’s featured artist during the month of February. She will be at the gallery on February 7th from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.during the Historic Downtown Mall’s First Friday event.

In this exhibit, Diana Branscome explores the endless range of colors found in the natural world. Whether it’s the sky high hues from the wild blue yonder or deep depths of color discovered in any ocean, Diana takes us on an adventure with her glass fusion. Out of the Blue is a collection of work that inspires an indigo daydream of a place where the sky meets ocean and celebrates in a showering rainbow of color. Her original handmade gems are reflections of light that dance on their own. When assembled with multiple droplets, they become ribbons that glow, sending a magical prism with rays of light reaching out beyond the beyond and then with a blink, there they are, Out of the Bluecapturing you.

Branscome Glass, fused glass in CharlottesviDiana has been working with glass for almost a decade. She has developed a technique that is thoughtful and daring building her wave-likecompositions. It takes experience to know how the glass will flow at over 1000 degrees Fahrenheit. Branscome uses her knowledge and applies gentle direction to the organic flows of liquid glass forming radiant treasures. Known for her dedication to quality and ability to deliver, Diana inspires local, regional, and national collectors to return time after time.
