In with the Old... Out with the New

Opaline in Still Life

I am thrilled to share a project that I have been working on for a while. I have been a collector of Portieux Vallerysthal for as long as I can remember. However, in the past few years the popularity of Opaline, namely Portieux Vallerysthal, has skyrocketed so much that it has become quite a costly investment. When I talk to people about their collections most have told me they do not actually use the Opaline. They choose to simply admire it. To me, Opaline goblets are meant to be used as much as admired! Art, however, is something that can only be admired. This brought me to the idea that perhaps it is time for Opaline and Art to meet.

Many of the works you will see are photographs I have taken throughout the years from my own collection. These photographs are then re-imagined into Still Life Art. I hope you enjoy this collection as much as I do. It is been a great joy and passion of mine to find another way for me to work with Opaline again. My works will be available soon via my website.

Until next time ~gg
