Andrea Haffner

Resin botanical sculptures

Andrea Haffner’s work highlights the infinite small wonders in the natural world. Her resin-encased compositions in her jewelry and small sculptures incorporate found materials such as weathered lacy pod skeletons, driftwood, and dissected seeds. Andrea has an abiding interest in small containers, in the ways they can serve as both holders of precious objects and deliberate points of focus. Through the unique contained environments she creates, she invites viewers to enter small worlds that are at once novel and deeply familiar.

Joseph Miceli


Formerly from the Finger Lakes region of Upstate New York, Joseph currently lives & works in the Philadelphia area. He received his undergraduate degree from Nazareth College of Rochester, NY, and relocated to Philadelphia in 1991 to pursue his Master of Fine Arts in Printmaking at Tyler School of Art and Architecture of Temple University.

In 2020 he returned to his studio with an invigorated focus on ink painting as a result of residing closer to home. Originally trained as a printmaker, he often adapts the complex application of printed inks into a more fluid approach utilizing templates and subtractive methods to attain comparable translucent layers. Through his use of water based inks this pliable medium allows the mining of multiple pigment layers to reveal dormant veils of underpainting. The impetus for the excavation of these strata of ink is to offer liberation to the unseen. Loosely based upon preliminary sketches of collected organic materials, his recent series of paintings reference floral specimens, the papery bark of birch trees and the branching growth pattern of lichen.

To view additional paintings available through GLG visit josephmicelifineart.com. Joseph’s work has been included in numerous group and solo exhibitions with many of his works residing in private collections across the country.

Artist Spotlight

Jóh Ricci

GLG congratulates one of our fiber artists, Jóh Ricci, on her awards and acceptances into juried competitions. Ricci was accepted into Fiber Art Now, the Art of The State, PA (3rd place) and the Masur Museum, 61st Annual Juried Competition.

‘Reclining Bloom’

Fiber Art Now – Excellence in Fibers IX Spring 2024

Art of The State, The State Museum of Pennsylvania

Fiber Art Now- selected for Fiber in 3D Spring 2024

Ricci earned her Bachelor of Fine Arts with a concentration in Fiber from Kutztown University, PA. She creates one-of-a-kind contemporary baskets and sculptural vessels. Self-taught, knotting is her primary technique, while crochet, netting and hand bead weaving may also be used, sometimes in combination with one another. The tedious and rhythmic motion of making knots begins with using guidelines of the design specifications, although a piece may follow its own path, which she embraces as a natural response to the creative process of manipulating colored threads into thousands of knots.

Ricci’s work has been exhibited at prestigious juried shows such as The Smithsonian Craft Show, The Philadelphia Museum of Art Craft Show, the American Craft Exposition, American Craft Council, as well as invitational and juried shows across the US and Ireland. A recipient of numerous awards, her knotting is included in a variety of magazine publications and books, as well as several private collections. Ricci is represented by Gravers Lane Gallery.

“My inspiration is drawn from everyday life. I see endless possibilities by keeping an open mind and an observant eye, bringing an awareness of the variety of forms, colors, patterns, textures and subject matter that surround me; and from which the creative process begins. I have found this form of expression both tedious and time intensive, yet there is a hypnotic rhythm to creating my work. I feel that the combination of positive energy and spiritual thought support my goals: to bring creative life to an idea; to challenge myself with the concept of what could be; and to create fiber forms that transcend the boundaries of the concept of a traditional basket.”
