A Mixed Media Sculpture from the Animal Tales series. 

In the ANIMAL TALES series I am joining my love of stories with my love of animals.  I’ve create hand drawn kiln processed glass paintings of animal portraits and attach them to manipulated books the titles of which are chosen to support the animal in personality, or behavior. 

There’s no evidence that birds dream or have any kind of imaginative flights of fancy, but the act of flying is something we humans dream about.  The book Flights of Fancy by Kenneth von Gunden was chosen for the presentation of these two fanciful orioles.

This Saatchi site is linked with : https://www.schriebersmith.com Schrieber-Smith is a multidisciplinary artist whose processes have evolved full-circle from glass, to mixed media assemblage, to painting, and now back to glass. Schrieber-Smith produces work in themed series such as the Paper-Doll series, the Neo-Mythology Series, the Working Women of the World series, the Glass Menagerie Series, the Glasscape Series and most recently the Animal Tales Series. The Glass Menagerie series began in May 2013, when she married her assemblage, painting and glass skills resulting in a whole new sculptural direction with open-ended imagery and mystery. The Animal Tales series couples her love of animals with her love of stories. Once again repurposing materials…this time books. The books are chosen to compliment the animal portrait. The portraits are a combination of glass painting and reverse painting on glass. The books are manipulated and adorned to compliment the painting which becomes affixed to the book. It is her intention for the artworks from both the Glass Menagerie Series and the Animal Tales Series to give new purpose and new meaning to the debris of our civilization. When not in the studio or in the classroom, Schrieber-Smith explores the world. Her extensive travel experiences in Europe, South America and Asia are an ongoing influence in both her artwork and her teaching. In 2016, Schrieber-Smith was honored by her Alma Mater with an induction into the Fine Arts Hall of Fame. Schrieber-Smith has works are in public and private collections both nationally and internationally. http://saatchiart.com/schrieber-smith http://www.schriebersmith.com
