Joy Alyssa Day and BJ Johnson specialize in unique works of art from tiny desk items to enormous sculptural installations. Techniques and media range from 2D paintings, both traditional oil/acrylic/watercolor/reverse painted glass and digital, to 3D sculpted creations incorporating blown glass, metal and wood.
Along with a gallery of their work, they have a full hotshop glassblowing studio and invite guests to come and watch the evening's creations.

Gorgeous and unique blown glass creations to brighten the world.
The supporting structure design employs four independent acrylic tube columns surrounded at their tops by the blown glass orbs and spirals. They work in concert with each other to support the glass top. They are unobtrusive and are beautiful in their own right.
A fifth acrylic tube is at the center. It supports the majority of the glass structures in a configuration that echoes the original single center support design, while the four outer tubes support the glass top. This moves the majority of the longer and more delicate elements away from feet and knees to the center of the base, restoring the center-weighted aspect of the original design. The addition of this fifth tube did not impact our production time.
