Moon Stumpp's Profile

About

My main livelihood came from jewelry design and creation. Then the miracle of glass manipulation took place in September of 2003. Glass, previous to that day, was lovely to view and very fascinating; now it has become my obsession. I have become totally and absolutely driven to make beads from glops of molten glass on a stick. I have officially been kissed by the flame.

The jewelry that is I design now comes the influence of the mix of lampwork, lapidary, fiber, and silversmithing. I am pushed by the need of color that flows and ebbs within the flame.

I do not make any claims of perfection, even though I strive towards that goal. The only glass rules that I follow… is for the beads to be structurally sound and well made, combined with creative integrity. Everything else is, negotiable.

The influence of much of my lampwork comes from many different styles and favors. I have been greatly influenced by people such as Larry Scott, Kimberly Affleck, and Jennifer Geldard. This is because I greatly admire their work and because I’ve had the pleasure of studying with them.


Update as of April 2014:

My name is Moon Stumpp and I’m a mixed media artist. I create the places and things from my imagination with dashes of humor. My work ranges from still life to abstract to whimsical but my passion is mixed media infused with color. Lately, I've been pulled more towards the whimsical and I don't want to leave.

My painted works are a co-existence of acrylic, watercolor, molding compounds, metallic and iridescent mediums, pastels, inks, printmaking, and various collage aspects that have been infused with fun, sometimes emotion. The subject matter comes from a direct spontaneous poof of imagination that is a journey of color, shape, and energy.

My other focus is digital, which seems to be taking over my creative energies. Photo manipulation, photo collage, art photography, and digital mixed media have also caught my attention but I doubt that I can give up a paint brush. The digital pieces start with a sketch and a detailed drawing, many are painted before moving over to be digitally enhanced. I’ve found that to create the end result, I have to go through a series of processes to get the vibrant color that I’m looking for. Paint sometimes just isn't enough for me...

If you have questions about the process or my work, please don’t hesitate to contact me at moon [!at] moonstumpp.com.
