I was so disappointed that my schedule did not allow for any of this exciting sharing that went on at Gail’s studio recently.
Just recently Lanny Bergner came to our studio to teach a group of students how to make forms from mesh. He demonstrated how to begin with a sheet of plain unimpressive mesh which most people would think – screen door! But in the hands of Lanny this ordinary screen mesh morphs into a piece of artwork. Lanny has truly learned about his medium. What can be done with it? bend? heat? sculpt? color? etc. He manipulates and forces every element of art and design from this mesh. Our students had the benefit of a man who knows and understands his medium. There is a lesson here for everyone who is making art, without even coming to a class. Gail
