A compendium of craft masquerading as art, art masquerading as craft, and craft extending its middle finger.

Juan Horny Glass Artist


I think that I mentioned my ill-fated dalliance with Stained Glass in a post earlier this month. Everything was going juuuuust fine until I absent-mindedly picked up the soldering iron by the pretty end. I have nothing but respect for people with the patience to master stained glass. Juan Martin del Campo jr is an erotic stained-glass genius. He will be featured in an exhibit of erotic craft (along with Jenny Hart and many other extreme crafters) at the Erotic Museum in Hollywood. He makes explicit porn/fantasy/homoerotic work, and also lovely trinkets (I especially love his coke-mirror sun-catcher) From his bio:

My Secret Life is Juan Martin del Campo jr., an LA native. I was in search of a release for my creative demons. I first fell in love with stained glass art after seeing Rita Ackerman's stained glass cover art for Thurston Moore's 'Psychic Hearts' Album. I wanted to infuse my own subversive personality into the preconceived notion of mainstream stained glass. My love of music, design and the erotic help to shape each piece I do. I want the sacred and the sacrilege to shine through each shard of glass. My art is meant to inject humor and titillation in an increasingly safe and boring pop world. I encourage everyone to discover their SECRET LIFE.
