A warm thank you to Stouffer Studios for inviting me to teach in their beautiful studio in San Antonio, TX. My heart was full of love to be able to teach this amazing group of people. I am looking forward to scheduling another workshop there soon. Stay tuned.......
I will be teaching this same workshop in Salt Lake City on March 4th & March 11th. This is the same class I taught last week at Stouffer Studios just a two day version. You can create ridiculous amount of depth with only two 3mil sheet glass, powder glass and enamels.
Registration is at this link.
Yes Yes Yes..... Thank you, A friend shared this with me and I had to share it with you.
I Love it!! I have a Belief that creating is not an act of scarcity. The more you do it the more you have. Encourage artists around you to create more.
This idea applies to love. The more love you give the more love you have. So on and so forth. Send it out to the world.

Salt Lake City Public Art Fire Station #3
I am pleased to announce that I am the selected artist for this amazing project. A warm thank you to Salt Lake City, Mayor Jackie Biskupski, Salt Lake Public Arts Program, and all Stakeholders in this project.
In the summer of 2017, Salt Lake City Corporation conducted a groundbreaking ceremony for construction at the new site of Fire Station 3, the city’s second net-zero energy fire station and only the third net-zero energy fire station in the country. This station will replace the current Station 3, located at 1085 East Simpson Avenue.
The new Fire Station 3 is located in Sugar House, occupying a vacant parking lot directly west of Forest Dale Golf Course. Fire Station 3 will be a Net Zero Energy, LEED Gold Certified facility. The construction incorporates a geo-thermal heating & cooling system, radiant floor heating, LED lighting, a high-performance building envelope and robust photo-voltaic array. A Net Zero Energy building will create as much energy on site as it consumes annually, which is paramount in achieving Salt Lake City’s 100 percent renewable-energy initiative
SCOPE OF WORK
My vision is to bring additional illumination and a calming environment to the over all experience for the fire fighters and visitors of Fire Station #3. There are several spaces that I will be addressing for art. I would like to create three separate collections for fire station #3.
After meeting with the stakeholders and fire fighters, I came to the understanding that the fire fighters all deal with extreme circumstances regularly and each person deals with this in a different way. In the design of the fire station building I noticed that the architect was careful in creating spaces for the fire fighters to seek out refuge. My intent is to extract more of that feeling through out the building and living spaces.
Meeting with the Sugarhouse Council was helpful to be able to incorporate themes that serve and speak to the Sugarhouse iconic past by using visuals to encompass Sugarhouses’ rich past and history.
Also, involving the community by inviting the fire fighters and others members of the community to visit my studio in groups assist with creating a small potion "Parley’s Undercurrent". Provide a teaching opportunity to the community giving insights to how the project is fabricated. Including the science behind the making of the glass art.
These two 9" glass disks are the prototypes for the art installation "Parley's Undercurrent", comprised of 300 glass disks.
2019 Glass Workshops are now online. Hope you can come play in the studio with me this coming year. Don’t wait to enroll, now is the time. #kilnformedglasseducation #801art #givethegift www.SarindaJones.com/teaching

I am excited to announce that I will be teaching a 3 day workshop on powder glass and enamels at Stouffer Studios in January. This will be a more in-depth workshop to my local class on Powders + Enamels.

Art that is contemporary and illuminates design. A minimalist approach gives my work a contemporary feel and illuminates simple beauty.
