James Hill’s “Reflections in Steel” showcased at the Sculpture Plaza

os Angeles sculptor James Hill creates art out of materials generally thought of as cold and hard-edged: steel, stainless steel, bronze. In Hill’s hands, however, those metals take on forms that are surprisingly fluid, human, poetic and even playful. More than a dozen of Hill’s boldly dynamic pieces, ranging from three to seven feet tall, will be showcased as part of this year’s Sculpture Plaza at the Palo Alto Festival of the Arts. Titled “Reflections in Steel,” his series of sculptures are being exhibited in free-form style in the outdoor gallery on University Avenue at Cowper. A California native, Hill earned his degree in fine arts from the University of California, Santa Cruz, and has been fashioning and fusing metal for more than 20 years. Starting with a pencil sketch, he hand-builds every sculpture, cutting and forming individual pieces before welding

them. The finishing process involves chemical patinas, oxidizers and grinding tools used to create specific surface quality, richness and texture. “I have an interest in people and relationships, the human figure and form. I give voice to this static, rigid material and turn it into an organic, sensuous, soft form,” he comments. “People always want to touch the sculptures.” For more about James Hill’s sculptures, including images of his current work and public art pieces, visit www.jameshill.com.

One-of-a-kind wearable art shows off precious metal and gemstones

udy Lazar’s fine art jewelry combines bold contemporary designs, high-quality gems and dramatic settings in platinum or 14k and 18k gold. The results are stunning: dramatic rings, sculptural bracelets, whimsical pins and graceful necklaces, each piece alight with dazzling stones from all over the world. “I look for gems that are unique and special,” says Lazar, who individually selects stones for their clarity, color and fire. “The gems speak to me: I see something in them first, before producing a piece.” Judy’s next step in this intricate process is sculpting a meticulous prototype of the piece out of various types of wax and then enclosing the carving in a plaster mold. When the mold is heated in a kiln, the wax melts and leaves a form ready for injecting molten gold using a casting machine and crucible.

Lazar employs a variety of tools and techniques in finishing the raw product, from hammering and sanding to ultrasound cleaning and polishing the piece. The stones are usually set in place last, she explains. “If I feel excited about the piece that I’m making, I know it’s going to work,” adds Judy. The Sherman Oaks artist has been a jewelry designer and goldsmith since 1981. She holds a Master of Arts degree in metalsmithing and jewelrymaking, and studied extensively at the Gemological Institute of America. Lazar has also taught high school jewelry classes and set up a jewelry program for inner city youth. To admire more Judy Lazar Designs jewelry, visit www.judylazar.com.

Italian street painting: Art in action at the ground level

A

rtists take to the streets for the 11th year at the Palo Alto Festival of the Arts, as the Italian Street Painting Expo returns to delight and amaze festival visitors on August 24 and 25. Presented by the Palo Alto Weekly, this popular event features more than 60 artists from throughout California, creating works of art in chalk on the pavement along Tasso. Participants begin sketching early Saturday morning and complete their pieces at 6 p.m. on Sunday. Festival-goers gather all weekend to watch this fascinating live-art demonstration. Street painting’s long and rich history originated in 16th-century Italy. It soon spread across Europe and by 1890, some 500 Londoners were fulltime pavement artists. The festival’s chalk-paintings range in size from 4-by-6 feet to 12-by-12 feet,

with subjects varying from familiar classical masterpieces and dazzling 3D art to original abstract designs. Past street paintings have included hightech subjects, Botticelli angels and Maurice Sendak illustrations. Sponsorship sales of the spaces benefit Youth Community Service. Proceeds raised from this fundraising effort help to bring awareness to programs such as leadership opportunities for young people and service-learning projects throughout the Bay Area. A kids’ chalk-a-lot area also gives children under the age of 12 the chance to participate in the street-painting event by creating their own 2-by-2foot artwork for a minimal fee.

Colorful whimsy and beauty captured in hand-blown glass art

B

ob and Laurie Kliss make art look fun. Their uniquely appealing, hand-blown glass pieces are marvelously playful, vividly colorful and delightfully different. From graceful “BOBtanical” floral sculptures to cunningly detailed fantasy teapots, the one-of-a-kind pieces created by these two Fresno artists embody a world of multihued energy and texture. Imagine Dr. Seuss, Alice in Wonderland and a touch of Disney, combined with the bright and reflective beauty of glass. “Life is pretty serious, so we figured we’d make something happy,” says Bob, who admits to being partial to their olive green and red pieces. “I love the bright acid greens and happy purples,” comments Laurie. “Colors with a punch.” The two artists founded Kliszewski Glass in 1993, building upon their shared background in stained

S

glass and fused glass art. “But the blown glass is so much more vibrant,” Bob says. “And no shapes are exactly the same.” In creating these unique glass sculptures, the pieces and colors for the base are first assembled, before being fused with secondary elements. Bob then blows the vessel, continually heating and re-heating the piece to temperatures of up to 1000 degrees. Melting and fusing the glass, he works it to a final desired shape; after cooling, each piece is signed and dated. “Some people see flowers. You’ll notice that they curve: flowers don’t grow straight up and down,” says Bob. “Other people see ocean floor life.” For a closer look at the colorful world of Kliszewski Glass, visit Bob and Laurie’s web site: www.klissglass.com.

piece, “Flow,” displays multi-colored dichroic glass on opposite sides.

Jeff and his wife Susan produce dazzling stainless steel sculptures, often embellished with elements such as copper and dichroic glass. Originally invented by NASA to use in astronauts’ helmet shields, dichroic glass is a color-shifting material made of layered metal and glass.

Each one-of-a-kind piece begins as a 4-by-10-foot sheet of stainless steel. “We start with an idea – or maybe a dream,” says Susan.

“Each sheet can have 35 to 65 layers,” says Susan. “One can flip from purple to green to blue; another goes from hot red to orange to yellow. We’re very excited for people at the Palo Alto festival to see the pieces.” “I like using dichroic glass with the steel: it’s a great combination,” Jeff comments. The two Colorado Springs artists are bringing a variety of work, from 22-inch wall hangings to a freestanding 10-foot sculpture. One brand-new

Jeff is responsible for the steel fabrication, a process that includes plasma cutting and TIG (tungsten inert gas) welding. Both artists share the sanding work; Susan sets the glass and finishes each piece with a protective coating. “I love to create,” says Jeff. “The satisfaction of making a thought, memory or emotion into concrete form is what drives me … my hand and spirit touches each piece from start to finish.” To see more of their striking work, visit: www. laingstudio.net.

Master carvers bring wooden sculptures to life he name of Osvaldo and Michael Orellana’s business says it all: “Wood Is Magic.”

This father and son from Upland transform pieces of solid walnut and mahogany into lifelike sculptures, from galloping horses to eagles and bison. Their exquisite rocking chairs combine function and fantasy, the backs and rockers often embellished with branches, blossoms and animals. A multi-talented artist, Osvaldo began carving at the age of six in his native Chile and developed a love of horses on his uncle’s ranch in the Andes. He became an accomplished painter and studied architecture before moving to the U.S. and joining the California Carvers Guild. Michael, who grew up in Claremont, started displaying significant artistic talent in middle school. Beginning by working in clay, he soon began to

help his father on major wood sculptures. Osvaldo designs the pieces and carves details; Michael works on assembly, carving and finishing. “This is not something you can do quickly – at the end it’s almost sad to finish, yet very satisfying,” says Osvaldo. “But the best part is working with my son. We respect each other and are a perfect team.” One of the Orellanas’ most intricate carvings depicts a remarkably detailed stagecoach robbery, complete with startled passengers. No screws or nails are used in making these realistic sculptures; after the design template is created and the wood is cut, pieces are glued with dowels before being carved, sanded and oil-finished. Their web site shows numerous sculptures as well as the carving process: www.woodismagic.com.
