On glass or paper -- A bright addition to the Northwest

Weir Studios is located in an old wooden boat barn in Ocean Park, at the north end of Washington’s Long Beach Peninsula. I am Andrea Mulkins Weir. I was born in Astoria, Oregon, at the mouth of the Columbia River, where my grandfather, Captain Ash, was a river and bar pilot. I draw from my rich memories of a northwest childhood to create illustrations of life as I see it.

 Weir Jewelry, growing out of fused glass bowls we have designed two broad categories of jewelry pieces Stiller Marks and cosmic beach glass.  Stiller Marks are hand painted pendants and pins – the black on red pine bough and brambles, the olive on golden lily pads, the magenta on lavender dune grasses, and the cobalt on light blue ocean waves.  The eye catching cosmic beach glass blends flotsam and jetsam with dichoic glass in bar pendants and individual shapes.  Available at retail and wholesale,   

 Weir Fused Glass the variety is simply astounding; these world-class fused objects are evolving rapidly. Andreas painting captured in side the fuse is a wellspring of creativity.  The scenes and figures range from northwest scenes to dancing figures, fish cavorting in bowls to politicians in salad bowls.  Composed of colors and patterns patched together, with borders based in the European tradition, especially Scandinavian. The colors are like bits of human enterprise arising out of the fog in the fields, deep rivers and sparkling streams, clover and pine. Red opalescent bits of glass decorated with black fir bows are our trademark. Figures from a recent past cavort and play through much of my glass. Each piece is unique and signed. My plates, platters and bowls add bright drama and shining warmth to any home or business.

Weir Glass painting has created large architectural panels or small, intimate remembrance panels, such as for weddings, graduations or memorials. Glass painting is an old tradition, and once a work is kiln-fired, it will not wash off or fade in sunlight. Let me bring this wonderful tradition into your life by creating a custom panel for you, leaded or foiled, framed or installed, working within your price, time and architectural constraints.

 Weir Graphics, known as North-Ender Cards, are meant to show this rich history in a playful mode -- the stories, riddles and rhymes of the human condition, not just here, but everywhere. We live in a tapestry of color and lore, joy and pain, whispers and song.

 Weir Jewelry, Glass paintings and Fused Glass are sold at galleries in Oregon and Washington. Visitors are also welcome to our boat barn studios, open March through September, Thursday thru Saturday, 10am to 5pm, Sunday 1pm to 4pm. and during the winter months by appointment.
