Kelly O’Dell’s work is both profound and whimsical. Kelly was born in Seattle, raised in Hawaii, and now lives in the Pacific Northwest. Her work mainly explores themes of extinction, preservation and human impact on the natural world. Please join us to watch Kelly create her amazing sculptural work.

We are thrilled to host renowned Northwest artist Raven Skyriver. Raven’s sculptures are inspired by the marine ecosystem and are incredibly lifelike. He started blowing glass at the age of 16 and has worked with Lark Dalton and William Morris. Raven’s work is shown nationally and has been exhibited internationally. His focus is in the area of sculpture, and the depiction of marine life is inspired by his island upbringing and informed by the creatures that inhabit this fragile ecosystem.

10/18 collaborative demonstrations with Kelly O’Dell 9am-1pm and Raven Skyriver 1:30-5:30pm

A former member of the SGS production team, Danny makes some of the most creative, quirky and playful sculpture around. He has been entertaining with art for as long as he can remember. In 2008, Danny received a BFA Degree from Bowling Green State University in Ohio. Painting and drawing had been the primary focuses until 2007 when he discovered glass. He developed a relationship with the material by approaching it much as he would a painting. Danny loves traveling to new places and meeting new people. Through this, he creates what he experiences and enjoys telling the story.
