BLISS STUDIOS NEWS
Over the winter Robert has been busy working on new subjects, tiles, sculpture and portraits. "Fred, everyone's best friend" is a portrait in memory of a pet that passed away recently.
During the winter months most of our art work can be found at Sea Meadow Gifts in Essex, MA (978-768-3441) or Shipshape in Marblehead, MA (781-631-7477). Both stores can ship to you. Premier Imprints in Gloucester, MA (978-282-3227) also carries our tiles, work by local artisans and "Made in America" items.
Feel free to call Bliss Studios if you have a new, specific item you would like us to make and produce. We would be happy to discuss it with you. subjects, tiles, sculpture and plaques.
Both the Rockport Art Association (open almost all year) and the North Shore Arts Association (closed for the winter) carry some of our items for sale. We hope you stop in.
Every once in awhile, customers will send us photos of their projects. Here is one of a bathroom renovation in California. A total of nine tiles were used and they extend around the corner of the shower.
Custom projects welcome any time, in relief or in the round -- ceramic, bronze or figerglas. Commissions accepted for a relief portrait to commemorate a loved one or pet. Please call to discuss.
Sculpture for your garden is now available, but pieces can also be displayed on a coffee table, mantle or bookshelf. The collection includes a variety of ducks, herons, turtles, a toad, a snail, lizards sunning themselves on a rock and even a mermaid.
The Toad Hall Toad is on permanent display at the Toad Hall Book Store in Rockport, MA. The Bookstore also has Garden Toads for sale.
When visiting Boston, don't forget to visit the Tropical Forest building at the Franklin Park Zoo and see the bronze Gorilla Portrait by Robert Bliss.

My wife, Karen, helps with the glazing process. Each tile is an individual piece of art from beginning to end.
