Kickstarter Campaign ~ 2014 Glass Float Project ~ Block Island

2014 Glass Float Project
Block Island, Rhode Island



In what's become a tradition, glass artist Eben Horton will be creating glass floats and hiding them around Block Island. Visitors are encourage to seek, find and keep the floats, and can even register their finds.



If you needed a reason to visit Block Island (and really, there are plenty), this one sounds like a lot of fun. I thought Bear and I might make our first trip over there this summer. Who knows...maybe we'll find a float to remember the occasion! If not, for the right donation, you can have one made just for you.

1. Tell us about your work
I became interested in renewing my knitting skills when one of my daughters announced to me that she and her husband were expecting their first baby.

2. How did you come to be a professional artist/crafter/designer?
I had always enjoyed knitting but put it aside while I spent many years as a registered nurse and then went to law school to pursue my dream of becoming a lawyer. I taught law and nursing for several years and then began to knit again in my spare time. When my other daughter became a mother too, I put my knitting skills into full throttle.

3. Where do you draw your inspiration?
I have always had a creative streak I think and have come up with different ideas for sweaters and hats many times just on a whim. The ideas just pop up sometimes without me putting much thought into them. The interesting thing about my hats is that I really don't have a set patter…

1. Tell us about your work:
It's really a family affair. In my cool basement Studio (my old catering kitchen) I hand dye spinning fibers, to be used to make hand spun yarn or used in the felting process, paint silk mawata (hankies) that can be used the same way and dye commercially spun yarns using an acid-actuated (white vinegar) dyeing process. I also make carded Batts, scarf kits for nuno felting and felted soaps. My sister/partner, Jenn, designs knitwear, makes project bags, stitchmarkers and Knit Links (a unique shawl pin alternative). Both Jenn and I spin. My husband makes nostepinnes (human powered ball winders), my eldest son makes my skein winding equipment and my younge…

1. Tell us about your work.
I work as a digital photographer, focusing on coastal beauty and affinity through fresh and approachable imagery of sailing and coastal communities. I constantly work to give viewers a transportive experience, drawing them into a world defined and surrounded by sandy beaches and salty ocean waters! Most of my work features sailing photography in the summer months, junior sailors, regattas, etc., and coastal fine art seascapes in the off-season.



2. How did you come to be a professional artist/crafter? 
I come from a sailing family, so naturally I learned to sail when I was very young. I became interested in photography during high school, first using my mom's ol…
