If you know anything about Mermaid Cottages, you know we love art! And of course, if that art incorporates mermaids, well that’s even better. Just look at these beautiful glass mermaids by artist Deb DiMarco! These beautiful pieces, both the Green Mermaid and the Dichoric Mermaids, are offerings from the National Liberty Museum Store in Philadelphia, PA. Here’s what their site has to say about the artist and her gorgeous work:
“I love the balance of glass and that I can use it like very hot paint.” ~Deb DiMarco Studio del Vetro Salem, NJ. Working as an independent glass artist since 2006 Ms. DiMarco made the switch from 2-D to 3-D design. After retiring from a 20 year career in graphic arts, she enrolled in the Glass Program of Salem Community College in Carneys Point, NJ studying concept and technique from 2003 through 2006. Although Deb is primarily a flame worker, she enjoys exploring many of the possible avenues of working with glass and has used sand casting, mold-making, slumping, fusing and pate de verre to express her ideas. Ms. DiMarco stays actively involved in the glass art community, by teaching, volunteering at Wheaton Arts and giving live flame working demonstrations.”
