About the ArtistI am an artist living in "The Football Hall of Fame" town of Canton, OH.
I went to Kent State University for a while to study fine arts and journalism, but since I had a professor try to stab me in the eye I have yet to go back.
Anyway, before I even started at good ol' KSU I taught myself how to work with glass. That was about 15 years ago from now. I kinda' learned working with glass backwards. I started with cold working, and then went on in 2001 to pursue a degree in fine arts at KSU. I have done many art shows and events here in N.E. Ohio, and became know as "The Glass Carver" because of my glass working technique. In specific I work with glass bottles. Even though I went through the process of learning to blow glass, I find what I started out with is what I enjoy doing the most.
I have been criticized as doing nothing more than a craft, as well as being hailed for creating fine arts. I say beauty is in the mind of those who look for it. What I found myself doing is something I have yet to see others do around here. I am a "Glass Carver, like people carve wood, I carve glass." That's what I say to the masses.
I utilized the cold working process in a way that is very unique and solitary. After that I apply many layers of paints and other media to give the work some definition. I am currently signing all of my works under the name "PACH ATOMZ". I've also signed them under my own initials (E.F.), and also L.H.F., which stands for "Local Heroes Foundation". I was getting so many blessings and praises about the inspiration of my art, I felt that I could help change the local art scene; but I guess being a black artist here and it's mostly harsh realities is a lesson I’m still learning. So half the time I end up focusing on my other creativeness which is music. That is a whole other story. LOL!
I was posted on JUXTAPOZ.COM as a featured artist, and you can see updated photos of my work on Flickr.com.
I hope you enjoy them.
Thanx and Peaze,
