Liquid Light Glass is proud to present “Clearly Solid” an exhibition featuring new work by Cia Thorne.
Many glass artists use their medium to explore light, transparency and motion. Cia Thorne hopes to push these boundaries with a new series focused on the tension between reflection and shadow. By pairing her angular glass shapes with graphite she states that the work is an attempt to “counteract the reflectiveness of the glass…[by] letting the pieces work together, back and forth.” This interplay between light and shadow is broadened by Thorne’s use of the geometric, both in the exterior shapes of the sculpture and the interior shapes that are encapsulated within the glass.
Clearly Solid marks the third stage in Thorne’s exploration into the abstract. She began by encasing the human form in geometric and architectural blocks, later encasing shapes, spheres, pyramids, or planes of bubbles. Her new work pairs transparent glass shapes with opaque blocks of graphite, encouraging viewers to explore the tension between the two materials.
Thorne has been blowing glass for almost 25 years. In that time she has continuously challenged her understanding of the properties and possibilities of glass. Her fascination with this medium began at The California College of Arts and Crafts. After 1990 she moved back to NM where she has been working on her craft at Tesuque Glass Works and Liquid Light Glass. She also participates in programs at Pilchuck and Corning Glass, and collaborates with other artists like Michael Bergt, Elodie Holmes and Patrick Morrissey.
In conjunction with Cia’s reception will be a special guest, Dr. Glenn Cook, Chief Scientist at Corning Museum of Glass. Dr. Cook is responsible for researching and sharing scientific and technical topics in glass. He will be speaking about what glass is, and what it isn’t. It should be very informative and he makes it fun. The talk starts at 4 pm.
Liquid Light Glass and Glass Alliance New Mexico are proud to host the presentation by Dr. Glen Cook, 4-5pm, and the next step in Cia’s journey, Clearly Solid, on Friday October 16, 5-7pm at 926 Baca Street #3 (505-820-2222).

It’s that time of year again! We are busy getting ready for the ACC Baltimore Show in February! I spent 18 years going to the Buyer’s Market of American Crafts in Philadelphia, but the Rosen Group made a change this year to January in Washington, DC. I took a sabbatical from the Buyer’s Market (now American Made Alliance) due to being a little behind schedule from injuries sustained in a minor car accident. (I’m doing much better!) I also discovered that some of my buyers weren’t able to do the January show. So I applied to Baltimore and have been busting butt to get all the work made for the show!
It is open to the public the 20th to the 22nd, and I will have lots of beautiful work to sell. My Calcedonia, or ‘Mystery Opal’ as we nicknamed it, is more beautiful than ever this year! I look forward to seeing you all there!
