Richard Ritter, a North Carolinian originally from Michigan, has been a glass artist since 1968. Here we see two of his fabulous pieces on display at the Green Hill Center for North Carolina Art, where his glass will be on display until May 9th (link). The pieces in the photo are part of his floral core series. They remind us of pearls emerging from oysters with a touch of Italian cane glass. If you appreciate glass art, this exhibit is a must-see. Green Hill even has a video set up so that you can learn more about Ritter's creative process.
Thanks to Skywatch Friday, we snapped the above photo from this angle, ever mindful to show a slice of the sky-- and to situate the photo in Greensboro! The building in the background is downtown on Elm Street.
