Next week on artblog radio – a podcast with Celestine Wilson Hughes

Celestine Wilson Hughes makes large colored glass sculptures that are totemic and sing the praises of the natural world and community. They especially are a celebration of women’s undervalued inner strength, and women’s bodies. Hughes, who has a studio at home in her basement, just started a residency at the 40th St. A.I.R. (Artist in Residence) studios in West Philadelphia. The artist is self taught and her free-standing collages of cut glass, metals, and other objects like beads are wonderful–bright and engaging objects that catch your eye from across a room that you want to explore up close. Next week we will have the full podcast interview. We talked with Celestine on Dec. 9, 2012 at her 40th St. A.I.R. studio.
