Ann Bonestell of Bonestell Studios

I can’t wait to share my 2017 soldered glass series with Open Studios Art Tour guests! This latest collection happened when I rediscovered an old tool, my friend for years, a soldering tool! Besides this HOT equipment, improved safety glasses, vintage fibers, photographs, handmade paper and many found treasures inspired me to create NEW jewelry, mini-shadow boxes, Holiday ornaments and home décor to please me and guests!

 

Some of these items have a devout motif, so I made a small Day-of the-Dead ofrende, or altar for seasonal meaning, too. Please enjoy discovering my archetypal Spirit Dolls, encaustic paintings, story shrines and a busy mixed media studio. We love browsers & hope you’ll explore nooks & crannies of our tools, materials and works in progress. Curiosity is encouraged!

 

My personal mission and commitment is to create what I’m able to add to the sum of beauty in the world. We look forward to welcoming visitors to Bonestell Studios. I’m Artist #52 with my artist husband, Jay Bonestell #53. We can’t wait for you to explore our ‘House of Art,’ with over 4 rooms filled with our designs. Join us 10am-5pm, October 14-15 and 21-22, 2017. 2008 Ferrell, Los Osos, 93402, 805.528.4265, http://www.bonestellstudios.com/
