Letter from the Editor Welcome to Issue 21 – Glitter and Glam! With all the holiday festivities around the corner, we wanted our December issue to sparkle and really shine a spotlight on all the talented contributors we are blessed to work with. We put out the call for your glitziest and most sophisticated looks and did you all ever respond! We are so proud to be able to feature some of the best and brightest independent international artists, photographers, designers, wardrobe stylists, make-up artists, hair stylists, and models in this issue. And, because the holidays are also about giving, we also wanted to feature some charitable alternatives to gift-giving that also do the world some good. The end of the year is always a good time for reflections on what’s happened in the past 365 days, both professionally and personally. The magazine has grown and flourished, thanks to readers like you. We now have two distributors to provide our customers with greater choices and flexibility when purchasing our issues. Our contributors continue to span the globe (though we are still waiting for our first contributor from Antarctica!). We’ve begun to collaborate and share knowledge with other independent magazines so we can utilize the industry’s best practices. All this is to make sure we put out the best issue for our artists and our readers alike! We hope you enjoy our Glitter and Glam issue. No matter what you celebrate this month, the editors at VEUX Magazine want to wish you a happy and joyous holiday season. Cheers, V.H. ~ On behalf of the Editors

Raise Your Glass:

Interview with Sarah Mulligan, Glassmaker By ViVien Hoang Photography by Sarah Mulligan

Life is full of small chance decisions that can ultimately determine our long path in life. Maybe you’ll bump into the cute person you’ll eventually marry, or see a window posting for your dream job. In Sarah Mulligan’s case, it led her to the beautiful world of glass working.

Mulligan immediately made the decision to switch majors. “I went to the administration and asked to be switched to glass, but they told me it was full. I introduced myself to the head of the glass studio, Dan Crichton, who passed away in 2002. It turned out he had a degree in Philosophy too, so we talked and walked back to the administration office and he told them to put me in the program even though it was at capacity, stating that someone was bound to drop out - which did happen two weeks in. I was one lucky duck that day!”

“I originally had plans to apply to the interior design program at Sheridan College, but decided to take a road trip and see the school in person to submit my portfolio. At the central loop, there were yellow doors that I thought was the main entrance, but instead it was the School of Crafts and Design (“SOCAD”) building. As I wandered around, somewhat lost, I found the glass studio - rock and roll was blaring, people were in blue jeans and sneakers and it was all so fascinating to watch the glass be worked. Then I found the interior design department and all the girls were in skirts and heels. It was so quiet and I felt totally out of place. I’m a blue jean, AC/DC loving kind of girl! I felt like the universe had stepped in and given me those big yellow doors to bring me to the glass studio.”

Under the watchful eye and tutelage of Crichton, Mulligan learned several methods of working with glass. She learned that blowing glass was hard, cerebrally challenging, frustrating but satisfying to do. The difficulty of blowing glass made it more rewarding and continually interesting. Mulligan found Sand Casting to be incredibly enjoyable. Most of the sand casted creations were more architectural and sculptural compared to the bowls and vases of blown glass. Fused glass, on the other hand, had the benefit of being affordable and allowed Mulligan to make items that could retail at a reasonable price. While it offered many creative possibilities, Mulligan admits that it is never truly satisfying as working with hot glass. Mulligan is inspired by nature, especially, “The weather. Maybe that’s the Canadian in me.” She waxes poetical:

GLITTER AND GLAM | ISSUE 21 | VEUX | 27


“The powerful stormy ocean with the white crests crashing and its lateral bands strange greys and blues - is the weather. The dappled warm golden light and smell of earth in the forest on a hot summer day - is the weather. But it’s not just the weather affecting the natural world, but also the way weather affects our personal nature - like how a rainy Sunday leaves you wanting that cozy feeling of staying in bed all day, or how even fifteen years after being out of school, there are still cool dewy September mornings that makes me feel like I am standing outside waiting for the bus on the first day of school again. That personal mood, that nostalgia, is set by the quality of light and that feeling in the air. The day to day relationship we have with the weather and the day to day relationships we have with our personal environment fuel my need to capture, affect, appreciate, create a mood with my art.” Her pieces are eye-catching, simultaneously delicate, detailed and earthy. These qualities were what initially drew me to her booth along the Victoria, British Columbia waterfront. The quality of the craftsmanship is evident in the flawlessness of her jewelry and other creations. I watched as people marveled at the cleverness of her bird’s nest and oohed over the glass pendants. For Mulligan, there was much to love about making glass art. “The best part of being a glassmaker for me is the functionality of it. We live in a world surrounded in and by glass, and although it can be breathtaking sitting up there on a mantel looking pretty, I get my greatest pleasure knowing that there are people out there enjoying not only the wine in the glass, but the glass itself or experiencing the simple pleasure of tossing a marble up into air and feeling the heft of it landing in their hand. Machine-made things can be beautiful, but they are lacking that human connection - from my hands to yours. That is where my pleasure lies.” Like many other artists, the practical side of art is always the toughest. For Mulligan and other glassmakers, there are added challenges. “The hardest thing is affording to do what I love. A glass blowing studio is crazy expensive to run. The equipment is industrial and the furnace has to keep the glass molten 24/7. The gas and electrical bills run in the thousands of dollars every month. That expense and the labor is not recouped until I sell what I have made. Like most glass artists, we work other jobs to help pay the bills and subsidize our glass blowing.” Still, despite these challenges, Mulligan is ready to take her art to the next level. “I would really like to take my glass from the table to the ceiling. I am interested not only in the aesthetic design of the shade itself, but I am interested in quality of light, the way it envelopes us, makes us feel, creates atmosphere and relaxes us...I want to explore that.” You can see more of her artwork and her shop at www.sarahmulligan.com.

Blown glass is probably the most commonly understood method of making glass creations. Blown glass starts hot. There is a furnace of molten glass, that one dips the blow pipe in to gather up the glass on the end, like a honey wand. From there it is worked with the breath via the blow pipe and using different tools and techniques to stretch, inflate, and manipulate the glass into the desired object. It is a true skilled trade, and is very hard to learn and takes years of schooling or apprenticeship to become good at it. Playfully, I like to explain to people that there are the glass gods that love to laugh at us puny humans trying to control the liquid medium. They demand sacrifices on a regular basis, so you get accustomed to pouring your time, energy, sweat and tears into something that just smashes into a million pieces on the floor on a pretty regular basis. It’s heartbreaking in a small way. Then there are the occasional burns I get on my hands and arms - I call them my little kisses from the glass gods. – Sarah Mulligan

GLITTER AND GLAM | ISSUE 21 | VEUX | 29


Top: Fused glass is much more predictable than blown glass. The glass begins cold and is placed into a kiln where it is heated to temp, melt and change the shape. There is some trial and error, but like baking, once you have the recipe you can repeat the process over and over again with a fair amount of success. There is very little breakage and one doesn’t have to go to school for years to hone a skill to do it well. Anyone can buy a kiln, take a weekend workshop and make decent fused glass in very little time. What sets my fused glass apart from others is my ability to add blown glass components and my blown glass cold working skills to fused glass projects. My jewelry is made by combining iron oxide and glass in layers of images. There is a small window of time and temp where the iron oxide image melts permanently into the glass before it burns away - through much trial and error I found that tricky window of time. This, combined with my polishing skills and equipment that I need for the blown glass, sets my fused glass apart from most other fused glass jewelry.

– Sarah Mulligan

Facing Page: Sand cast glass is done in the hot shop where the blowing glass takes place. Instead of gathering the glass on the end of the blow pipe to make an object, you scoop up the glass with a ladle and pour the glass into a sand reservoir. Similar to fusing, it is fairly easy to pick up in a short period of time, but it differs in that it is very costly to do. It is fun and doesn’t break your heart like blowing glass does. – Sarah Mulligan

The Gifts That Keep On Giving By Wales Wong & Vivien Hoang

When the holidays roll around, excitement and joy can often be overshadowed by that imminent feeling of stress to find the perfect present for your loved ones. During a time of giving, most of us are in search of a good deal and consumerism is victor in the days leading to Christmas. However, this year can be different. Have you thought of ethical gift giving? The recipient will not only be a friend, family, or coworker, but they can also be a stranger who is in need of resources that most of us take for granted. OXFAM CANADA www.oxfam.ca Recently, I had the opportunity to speak to Ryan Hollinrake who is a part of the Strategic Partnerships and Community Fundraising at Oxfam Canada. He sheds some light on both the work they do and what to consider when making donations. The goal of the organization is to alleviate poverty with a focus on women’s rights and gender equality around the world. Oxfam Canada has offices located across Canada and each branch focuses on a particular issue that requires attention and assistance. While the name is local to this country, their reach and scope are far and wide, often contributing to developing countries such as India, Honduras, and Sri Lanka. Within these countries, they’ve made progress in changes for gender equality. They’ve been able to do so because of monetary contributions and volunteer work. This alternative has “helped shift holiday gift giving which really affects change” for those in need according to Hollinrake. Considering making a donation on behalf of a friend or family member is nothing new, but it is fast becoming a popular alternative to gift giving. Similar to finding a physical gift that you would give in a gift-wrapped box, there is some research that should be done beforehand. Hollinrake advises people to find out if your donation will be used in a “restrictive” or “unrestrictive” manner once it is in the hands of the charitable organizations. 62 | VEUX | ISSUE 21 | GLITTER AND GLAM


GLITTER AND GLAM | ISSUE 21 | VEUX | 63


When there are “restrictive” terms, the money must directly be spent on the goods that will assist those who need it. For example, if I purchase a goat for a family, they will get a goat. If it is “unrestrictive”, then the donation may also include administration fees and it can be spent on items or facilities decided upon by the organization. Transparency is important because you want to know where your money is going to. When unsure, read the Frequently Asked Questions portion of their websites which usually clarifies what their goals are and where money is allocated to. If your questions are still unanswered, Hollinrake suggests to send them an email. As it is a time for giving, he suggests people can also help out with the community by doing volunteer work. For those living in Canada, Oxfam Canada’s website has a link to how you can contribute your time and efforts locally. Also, with the popularity of social media, spreading the message through the Internet can help to raise more awareness on issues and ways to improve lives around the world. Lastly, it’s not only about giving, but also about receiving. Rather than be plagued with the task of re-gifting unwanted presents, consider making a wish list on www.oxfamunwrapped.ca/wishlist so your friends and family can easily find the perfect gift for you. Jack Layton, a well-known Canadian political figure, was a supporter of the wish list for many years.

KIVA www.kiva.org Another option is Kiva. Many charitable groups attempt to alleviate poverty through the creation of opportunities for local citizens. Kiva is a non-profit organization that was founded in 2005. Kiva’s concept is simple: instead of donating funds, you invest them (via a global network of microfinance institutions) in small businesses around the world where the entrepreneur might not have the access or the credit to borrow from a traditional banking system. You might want to help a dairy farmer buy more cows for his farm in Peru, invest in seeds and a plow for a family in Cambodia or help a group of village women in Nicaragua buy cloth and supplies to start a crafting business. Other loans can help impoverished or rural students attend professional training or medical schools. 100% of your loan goes to the business, as an international team of volunteers and Field Partners work in each country to research and vet each potential borrower. Like any investment, the lender assumes the risk of the loan. However, since most individual loans are between $10 and $25 USD and the crowdfunding capabilities of the internet means that dozens (if not hundreds) of lenders can fund a particular borrower, you can spread that risk out. With a repayment rate of over 98%, the chances of getting your money back is pretty high! Once your borrowers have repaid you, you can invest in another Kiva borrower, donate the money or withdraw it – the choice is yours! Since 2005, Kiva has helped 1.2 million lenders lend almost $640 million dollars to borrowers in 84 different countries. THE DAVID SHELDRICK WILDLIFE TRUST www.sheldrickwildlifetrust.org For the animal lover in your life, consider a donation to the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust. The Trust, founded in 1977, is one of the most successful orphan-elephant and rhinoceros rescue and rehabilitation programs in the world. Located in Kenya, the orphanage has successfully raised over 150 baby elephants that have been orphaned often due to poaching, and have helped with long term conservation efforts by re-integrating these orphans back into the wild herds. For a minimum donation of $50 USD a year, you can foster one of their many baby elephants and help fund their care. You receive regular updates, a certificate, a photograph and other information about the elephant you are supporting.

So this year, spread the holiday cheer and think about giving a gift that will continue to make a positive change once it leaves your hands. Photograph courtesy of Wales Wong GLITTER AND GLAM | ISSUE 21 | VEUX | 65
