December 2020

This holiday season, we’re thankful for quite a lot, and for the privilege of getting to know Squire House Gardens in Afton MN when Al placed a mix of vases there. Squire House offers gifts & goods for home & garden, and is a longtime holiday shopping destination.

 

And please support these other great Minnesota galleries this season:

W2, The Grand Hand Gallery, St. Paul MN

Gustaf’s Galleries, Lindstrom MN

Austin ArtWorks, Austin MN

In the meantime, at Alan Honn Glass:

 

 

 

Sound Wave, first in Al’s current series of hand drums, earned the Visual Arts Committee Award at this year’s ArtReach St. Croix Member Show in Stillwater, MN. ArtReach has done a great job producing events in unusual circumstances this year, maintaining tradition while innovating.

 

 

Al was invited to participate in Cream of the Crop, a virtual Minnesota State Fair art and music experience. The online event provided an opportunity finally launch an online store, with an improvised collection shot outside in the sunshine. Photography is next on the to-do list, with a goal of updating the shop progressively. Find it at alanhonnglass.square.site/s/shop

Alan Honn Glass was at work New Years Day, delivering a piece from a new series to the exhibition Beginnings at artZ in Amery WI. It’s been a pleasure to partner with the team at this cool art space over the last year and a great chance to explore the local scene.

After many years, Al took the opportunity to return to a favorite form during a January workshop with visiting glass master Rob Stern at Foci – Minnesota Center for Glass Arts.

About the work:

Forever attracted to light, intrigued by sound and its relationship to form and the elusive containment of glass, I began creating drums in 1988, utilizing the full spectrum of energy available through practicing Reiki. I’m very happy to rekindle the making of these forms and am pleased that I was able to increase their size.
