Years ago, I purchased three Mardi Gras comedy masks from Studio Inferno in purple, green, and gold glass. I love to display these annually for the Mardi Gras season.
This year, I have displayed each in the three windows of the dining room. I used powerful suction cups to attach them in each window. I love the purple, green, and gold glow.
Studio Inferno is known for their glass studio in the Bywater area of New Orleans. Started by glass artist Mitchell Gaudet, the building houses multiple artist workspaces, glassblowing studio, and a gift shop which features the studios New Orleans-inspired designs including water meters, fleur de lis and voodoo dolls in addition to their signature flaming hearts, torsos, lips and chile pepper necklaces.
