Meet the artist, Donna Lalumiere, and her artistic creations that integrate fascinating glasswork with original designs. Donna's love for the beach life and passion for design are the inspirations for her establishing "Sandy Toes Art Design" as an outlet for her artwork. These interests are well represented in her unique and imaginative pieces.
Although not "formally trained" in the arts, she has spent a lifetime immersing herself in creative pursuits. Donna has studied a vast array of subjects that include interior design, acrylic and water painting, and glasswork at studios both local and beyond. The artist's work has been well represented at various local shops, and she has participated at many shows and events across New England.
Phil’s early interest in glass began with a glass blowing class more than 20 years ago and has developed into a new passion for creating kiln-formed pieces of art and unique glass gifts. Combining various techniques of fusing, raking, temperature manipulation, and slumping glass, his pieces often produce a flow that results in a unique design to capture the light beautifully. He fuses the warmth and the beautiful color palette of Cape Cod to create distinctive works of art glass including Garden art, votive candle holders, plates, sculptures, wall hangings, wine coasters, and business card holders. Many pieces are one of a kind.
Phil currently has pieces at Creative Hands Gallery in Osterville, MA, https://www.creativehandsgallery.com

I have been painting as long as I can remember. My passion for art brought me to paint in oils and pastels as well as pottery and fused glass. It was only a matter of time until I started mixing mediums and began “painting” in glass. I enjoy experimenting with different glass fusing techniques and have developed a unique way of combining fused glass with my skill as a landscape painter. I use a tac-fuse method of fusing which brings out the depth and texture of each piece. Most of my work depicts beaches, flowers and landscapes. My work is inspired by all things Cape Cod.
