ENCINITAS — HomeLife Village Realtors & Art Gallery, 500 Grand Ave., introduces The Glass Giraffe and artist Carol Korfin
The Realtors have art incorporated into their business. A gallery within its offices features seven artists. One of them is Carol Korfin, a.k.a. The Glass Giraffe.
Featured for the month of August and creating one-of-a-kind fused glass art, Carol Korfin chose her company name by “fusing” her love of all things giraffe with her love of glass art. She has a giraffe collection numbering more than 150 pieces in her home.
Living in San Diego since 1981, she has been driven by passion for designing. Korfin became hooked on glass and began creating more pieces than her hands (and kiln) could handle. Each glass art piece is created and designed from a wonderful imagination using the finest quality glass. Using a variety of glass types – such as translucent, opaque, dichroic, iridescent, frit, millefiore, confetti, rods, stringers and noodles, her pieces are limited only by what imagination inspires and the size of her kiln, which happens to be pretty big.
The Off Track Gallery, in the Lumberyard Center in Encinitas also house her collections. Come by and browse a multitude of creations and muse at the reflections in the glass.
Korfin is also active in numerous organizations; Coastal Artists; the Art Glass Association of Southern California in Spanish Village, Balboa Park; San Diego Museum of Art Artists Guild in Balboa Park; Allied Artists Association of San Diego; North County Society of Fine Arts; and Oceanside Museum of Art’s Artist Alliance.
