Jody Danner Walker
“I see myself as a thoughtful, playful artist who loves to capture both people doing ordinary tasks and the colors, shapes and textures of nature.”
What inspires you?
All the colors of the Earth
“Painting, Sculpting, Carving... oh, so many possibilities for play”
And further, I’m very concerned about the planet. One of my responses is seen here. I’ve taken a concept like not leaving a carbon footprint on the Earth and respond, instead, with “Leave a Footprint.” It’s supposed to remind us to think about what we want to leave behind as our legacy. In both this piece and “A Still Life,” I carve these concepts into layered fused glass using a kiln and a glass lathe.
People Doing Ordinary Tasks
My Memory Pieces come from past events that have touched my heart. I am moved by people doing ordinary, everyday tasks. My desire is to capture and portray them in the act and tell their story.
“I try to capture the spirit of the world, freeze that moment in time, and tell that story in my art. Fusing glass allows me a large vocabulary of possible ways to express myself.”
I have known Jody for many years. Seeing the beauty of her work was one of my main inspriations for creating a website that marries home decor and unique, one-of-a-kind pieces of work. Any of her pieces be a stunning focal point for a room – you can share with admirers a little bit about Jody’s process and inspriation.
