Lisa Rippee - What Goes on in Her Mind?

I would love to walk through the mind of Lisa Rippee, a glass artist who works in both borosillicate and soft glass. When you visit her Etsy store, Cloud Eleven Design Creations in Glass, and look around, you will begin to understand why I say this.
In a minute, I'll let Lisa speak for herself, but in the meantime, check
this out. ------------------------------->

Do you see what I mean? Wouldn't you love to tour the brain of the person who made this fabulous sculpture? I know that I would! Look at the detail in this sculpture vessel. Where do these ideas come from? Her creative gift is amazing!

Recently, I purchased this tutorial
--------------------------------------------> from Lisa's shop on how to make these fabulous vessels. You can read my blog about the vessels I made using her excellent tutorial here.
Then, off you go to Lisa's Etsy store to look at more of her work.

While you're busy looking, I'm going to let Lisa do a little bit of talking now!
In her narrative, Lisa will mention borosillicate glass. This is made from borosillicate glass or boro as it is nicknamed. It's a very strong glass.

Lisa Rippee of Cloud Eleven Design is a flamework artist in Kansas, where she creates humorous works using soda lime and borosilicate glass. She finds inspiration in simple things, such as things children say, annoying television commercials, and life’s subtle ironies. Her most rewarding work is that which elicits a strong response from the viewer. Lisa has studied with several glass artists such as Loren Stump, Sharon Peters, and Tink Martin. She teaches private lessons and will be an instructor at Glass Stock in Bend, Oregon in 2010. Lisa’s work can be found in Bearden’s Glass Gallery in Overland Park, Kansas, and in her Etsy store at www.cloudeleven.etsy.com.

So, don't waste time. Take a trip over to Cloud Eleven Design on Etsy. You won't be sorry you did, then ask for a tour of Lisa's mind. That would be amazing!
