Stark Raving Friends

Brooks + Dutcher

Cyd Dutcher and Suzette Brooks are fused glass artists, Michigan natives, and longtime friends. They are creating a collaborative work called, "Stark Raving Friends". This piece will be a towering sculptural triangle, framed by wood, with 21 fused glass panels. Within the 21 panels are 14 abstract faces that contain subtle hints of their 25 year friendship. It explodes with lighted, brightly colored designs that will catch the eye of Art Prize visitors.
