River Timber Vases Unveiled!

River Timber Vases

[River Timber vases including (clockwise from the top) an Emerald Ocean Tall vase, Amber Vase, Kaleidoscope Vase, and Clear with Sapphire Stripe vase.]

The idea for this exquisite collection of  glass vases was born in the devastating aftermath of the 2015 Wimberley/San Marcos. Each vase is shaped in a wood mold created from flood felled trees, fulfilling Wimberley Glassworks founder Tim DeJong’s desire to transform symbols of tragedy into works of supreme and lasting beauty.

Amber River Timber Vase

 

Introducing the new River Timber vases, combining the beautiful refractive qualities of glass with the flowing, organic shapes of wood and timber. Each vase is a unique creation. The mold used to craft it is slowly consumed by the heat of molten glass as this work of art is shaped.

“Rollicking roadhouse rave-ups and soulful Gulf Coast R&B”
--USA Today

Marcia Ball’s brand of blues lifts the spirit -- old-school R&B mixed with Cajun, zydeco, boogie-woogie, swamp pop and just about every other stripe of music from Southeast Texas’ Golden Triangle across the state line toward New Orleans and Baton Rouge. She’s as perfect an artist as could be.

--Houston Chronicle

The title track of Marcia Ball’s latest album, The Tattooed Lady And The Alligator Man, is an irresistible tale of true love at the traveling carnival. It’s a story that nobody but Ball could spin, filled with vivid details, universal truths, and a rambunctious sense of fun and desire. With raucous horns punctuating Ball’s legendary piano playing and emotional, melodic vocals, the song kicks off a CD of eleven dazzling originals and one stirring cover. The release mixes Ball’s Gulf Coast blues, New Orleans R&B, swampy Louisiana ballads, and jumping, Tex-Mex flavored zydeco into a one-of-a-kind musical gumbo, a sound she has been perfecting over the course of her legendary career. Her love of the road has led to years of countless performances at festivals, concert halls and clubs all over the world.

The Texas-born, Louisiana-raised musical storyteller’s groove-laden New Orleans boogie, deeply soulful ballads and rollicking blues have won her an enormous, loyal and still-growing fan base. She’s received a total ten Blues Music Awards (and a whopping 44 nominations), seven Living Blues Awards, and five Grammy Award nominations. She has been inducted into both the Gulf Coast Music Hall Of Fame and the Louisiana Music Hall Of Fame.
