2Roses Monday’s Child - A Weekly Creative Shot in the Arm




Philip Baldwin and Monica Guggisberg began their journey refining the classic traditions of their training and now embrace all aspects of experimentation. Their 28+ year teamwork is expressed in a collection of glass vessels distinguished by bold surface designs cut to reveal the colors below, and that celebrate the nature of hot, molten glass.

Their surface designs appear to be quite complex but in fact are areas of very busy pattern thoughtfully separated by solid color. Contrast is also featured prominently in their work. Even in the most active of patterns, the effect doesn’t get “lost.” It stands out by the means of contrast of color. Contrast and handling of a pattern are two things that artists can experience some struggle with. Baldwin and Guggisberg make it look easy. Believe us, it isn’t.
