Proctor writes on Instagram from the Winter Park Sidwalk Art Festival (see amazing piece and award below): “Trying to represent for all the blacksmiths, being considered as art blacksmithing is still in its infancy in my opinion, lots of us are trying to change that so many of you are doing an outstanding job.”

Breathtaking Art Glass from Barbara Westfall

Art + Glass + Design

Barbara Westfall writes:

I am a glass artist and designer.

I am captivated by Nature and all its elements – earth, water, fire, air, space – and how they interact and influence each other…

I am fascinated by the way in which sunlight, water, and plants are affected by changes in the seasons, weather, and time of day.

I am overjoyed to capture and interpret these colorful elements and interactions into original art glass designs for you to collect and enjoy.

–Barbara Westfall
