Isabel Green: Creatures of the Sea
The Sandwich Glass Museum is proud to present a solo exhibition by Isabel Green. The exhibit, which opens to the public on Wednesday, February 1, and runs through November 1, 2017 showcases Ms. Green’s adeptness and attention to detail with both her flame work and blown glass.
Isabel Green is a third generation Cape Codder who found her passion for glass after attending a class at McDermott Glass Studio in Sandwich. Since then, Isabel has become part of the production team at McDermott’s and appreciates the challenges of traditional glassblowing. She credits David McDermott for helping her become the glassblower she is today.
Isabel also works with a torch and glass rods, a process called lampwork or torchwork. She uses both skills to continually refine the designs of her nautical creatures including colorful octopus, jellyfish, sharks, shells, crabs and turtles. She strives “for that perfection of the actual form.” Isabel finds glass to be an ever-evolving medium in which she enjoys pushing her creative limits. “It is always fascinating to see the evolution of glass artists, and Isabel’s has evolved into something magical.” noted Katharine H. Campbell, Executive Director.
Ms. Green was recently named one of Cape Cod’s up-and-coming artists by Cape Cod Life magazine. In the article “The Grateful Eight” by Haley Cote, the artists are described as having the “it” factor and “appreciative of those from whom they have learned.” A graduate of Falmouth High School, Isabel currently resides in Bourne.
