Donna Gordon Glass Collection Hearts

I love my life as an American and think you probably do too.   This would be a different world without the men and women who serve our country in a uniform. I’m talking about our military forces here and abroad.  Those who serve in combat know their life is at risk but few think about the effects of trauma when they return home.  We are grateful when they come home to us but are not always prepared for the effects of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).  It’s real and it isn’t always addressed until too late.

The Wounded Warriors, Colorado Springs, foundation has partnered with Aspen Pointe to help our combat veterans through Art Therapy.  It’s an effective method of therapy and we are here to support this fine group of caring friends in any way we can.  We are reaching out to you too to help us raise funding for this important cause and help those in need of our help.

During the Month of October sales proceeds from our Donna Gordon Blown Glass heart collection will be donated to the program to show our gratitude.  In addition, on Sunday, October 16 from 1-5 pm we are participating in a fun afternoon of food, demonstrations and a silent auction.  Proceeds from the day and silent auction will also help this important program.  We hope to see you here and look forward to receiving your help.

Really Hot Stuff

From the Furnace to Home

Have you ever watched a surgeon perform a procedure and thought, “wow that looks fun”.  Maybe you even thought it looked easy.  That is how I felt when I watched Donna Gordon at her Colorado hot shop create a beautiful vase.  This was not my first visit and I expected to be uninspired seeing her work again since I’ve watched the process before several times.  Wrong.  She is amazing and glass blowing is incredibly difficult, labor intensive and VERY HOT. Aside from the intense heat, I thought maybe this time I would try one or two of the steps she performs but decided not to interfere with her rhythm.  She moves to and fro from the furnace to the glory hole, to the bench, to her torch, to her table for more colored frit and back to the glory hole. Like a dancer not missing a step.  I think I will just leave the glass blowing to the experts like Donna Gordon.

The Donna Gordon Glass Collection is refreshed with new work regularly.  She just finished blowing several dozen hearts for our October fundraiser to support the Wounded Warrior Art Therapy program.  Stop by and pick out your favorite color; they make great gifts and will make you feel great about yourself for helping our combat vets seeking help through Art Therapy.

Donna Gordon Custom Blown Glass

Have you been burning up hours searching and searching for a perfect painting or piece of artwork?

We often hear someone confess he/she has been looking for months—even years—for a painting to love for a specific location.  Years of searching might seem extreme, but we know you are out there.  Sometimes available space requires a certain dimension and other times lighting issues are factors that can be addressed in a custom piece. 

The solution is to identify an artist’s style of work you appreciate, then work with their representative.  Don’t be shy about asking for specific needs–whether it is size, color or shape. We have completed many custom requests and have many examples to show you. Most of Hunter-Wolff Gallery’s artists enjoy creating custom pieces based on client needs.  If you plan to place a piece of art in your home, why wait?  Stop searching, start asking, and get the ball rolling. 

You can have the art you love now!
