Jane Hartman

Jane is a glass artist who loves working in both fused glass and stained glass.

Her educational background in science is evident in her unique choice of subjects, which may include anything from insects, fish, and trilobites; to protozoa, planarians and viruses. Though her art is stylized, Jane pays particular attention to scientific details and embraces the vivid colors found in nature. She tries to find and incorporate humor when she can, whether it’s with the crossed eyes of a two-headed planarian, or with a “bioluminescent” light bulb on an anglerfish.

Jane’s work is seen regularly in juried Gallery Shows & Craft Shows in the area, as well as online and at her studio at Visarts. She also teaches classes at Visarts and privately. She is thrilled to do commission work, especially those that incorporate wondrous and obscure life forms seen in the natural world.

Studio News from Nanette Bevan

Over the past few months have been creating new classes in warm glass and visiting New Hampshire. Now back full time at my studio, I am teaching a wonderful class for students to learn to create a woven glass piece! Check it out at VisArts in Rockville, Maryland. Join me if you are in town. You will make something lovely!

Here are a few glimpses of recent work to get you ready for Halloween.

Xiaosheng Bi

Xiaosheng Bi was raised in the countryside near Xian, China, an area that was China's ancient capital for centuries and is replete with traditional Chinese art and culture. After studying graphic design, Xiaosheng worked at the Xian Craft Art Research Institute where he traveled throughout China to study and document classical and folk art. In 1989, he was admitted to the Ceramic Art Department within the College of Art at Qinghua University in Beijing, China where he earned his bachelor's and master's degrees and then taught ceramics for eight years. In 1997 Xiaosheng immigrated to the United States and soon established himself as a ceramist and teacher in Chicago. In 2004 he moved to the Washington, D.C. area and now lives in Rockville, Maryland with his wife and young daughter.

Xiaosheng's work reflects his traditional Chinese influences, yet is infused with a contemporary aesthetic. Suffused with gentle colors, his delicate forms shine with the brilliant translucency of bone china porcelain and traditional Chinese motifs such as bamboo leaves or lotus blossoms are painted with dynamic, nearly abstract strokes. Through his life and work, Xiaosheng has formed a bridge between the introspective sensibilities of Chinese culture and the dynamism of modern Western culture.
