WHEN: The hunt begins late May 2014 and continues indefinitely....it only ends when all the floats have been found!
WHAT: 550 Glass Floats (glass orbs about the size of a grapefruit) will be hidden on Block Island. Floats will be dated, numbered and stamped with the shape of Block Island. All floats are clear glass except for 14 (because it is 2014), which are special colored orbs. One super special float is made entirely out of gold leaf.
WHERE: Floats will be hidden on the beaches and on the Greenway Trails. They will be above the high tide mark but NEVER in the dunes or up the side of the bluffs. They will be within one foot of either side of any Greenway trail they are placed on.
* This is finder's keepers but we ask that you only keep one per seeker, please *
Keep looking until you find one!
(they will stay where they are placed until they are found)
About the Artist
Eben Horton Glass. Eben creates custom one of a kind pieces on an individual basis out of his studio that he calls ‘The Glass Station’- a converted 1920’s gas station.
Prior to creating The Glass Station, Eben attended The School of American Crafts BFA program, Penland School of Crafts, an independent study in Murano, Italy and has taught at The Corning Museum of Glass. As of late, Eben’s talents have been in demand in the architectural sector, creating large installations , custom lighting, and is highly specialized in historical reproductions of early american and 17th century glass ware. While many glass artists specialize in one style of glass, Eben refuses to define his work as a singular style and prides himself as a highly skilled technical craftsman. Rather than becoming a production glass maker, or a glass artist who makes one recognizable style of glass over and over again, Eben is one of the country’s most versatile glass makers and is capable of turning your concept, design, or historical restoration project into a reality.
