Last night, Taliaferro Jones wrote that she was back from her holiday in Spain ... physically at least. She forwarded an article published in this month's ARTNews about her exhibition held in sync with her lecture at the Glass Art Society's summer conference in Portland. The article, by TJ Norris, discusses Taliaferro's work as follows: "Jones displayed a taste for the flowing gesture in her translucent kiln-cast glass sculptures mimicking the grace of oceanic movement. In three sumptuous works she gave the viewer a snapshot of the tips of waves. Shown together with a large-scale digital print of the reflective ocean surface, the meticulously rendered Effervescence (2008) captures the ferocity of whitecaps and the luxuriousness of sea foam." Bravo Taliaferro!
