Tom Bloyd’s Glass Install at OP Community Center




Last week we wrapped the installation of several blown-glass birds by Tom Bloyd.  This was at Overland Park’s new Matt Ross Community Center, which I alluded to in an Earlier Post.  Yeah, I know the photos suck.  But I’m an art consultant, not a shooter.

These birds are not typical of what we do, but this is the daycare area, and we wanted something that kids would go WOW over.  Hence: a hawk, meadowlarks, a woodpecker, touchable birdhouses, a peacock, etc.  I suspect it will be a big hit, especially whenever the sun hits all these pieces.  Certainly illustrates Tom’s skill.  He’s spent 15 grueling years learning to blow with such control; I know that wasn’t an easy road.
