David demonstrates the process of making a glass Mickey Mouse.

 

The piece is an award that is given to the artist that has won the "Best of Show" at the "Festival of the Masters" art Fair.

 

beginning in 1996, David had been chosen to create a unique art glass piece every year for this show. This show is held annually in the month of November at the exciting "Downtown Disney" in Orlando Florida.

David created a large art glass Mickey Mouse with a glass jelly bean jar. This piece was inpired becuase Ronald Reagan always kept a jar of jelly beans on his desk in the oval office.

 

This specific piece was made in colaboration with his wife Dixie, bringing her specialized expierience in art glass jewelry for this special pieace.  in all she created 600 red, white, and blue glass jelly beans for the glass jelly bean jar.

 

This piece was presented to Nancy Reagan on July 3, 2012 at the opening of the Disney Archives at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library.

David participated in the first of it's kind, "International Flameworking Invitational ", which was held in Las Vegas in 2010.

 

There was so much excitement during this competition. Pressure to compete against the worlds best was intense. The competition was divided into 12 teams consisting of 4 artists each. Each group contained years of combined talent and experience which all came together to make some incredible art glass.

 

Watch as David creates this unique dragon which became the center focal point of the piece whch was named the "Dragon Fountian"
