The Valley Railroad Company has been in existence in one form or the other since 1868 and is presently operating as The Essex Steam Train & Riverboat. The history of this railroad is as exciting as a ride on the railroad today, giving passengers a glimpse of the history of the American rail system from the early days of steam to the present. Essex Steam Train & Riverboat’s journey begins at the historic 1892 Essex Station for a 12-mile, narrated round trip into the heart of the unspoiled Connecticut River Valley. The steam locomotive pulls vintage coaches through the quintessential New England towns of Essex, Deep River, Chester and Haddam. At Deep River Landing, passengers are escorted onto the Becky Thatcher riverboat for a cruise along the Connecticut River. The visual serenity of the river valley is on full display from Becky‘s multiple decks. The deep water, coves, inlets, marshes, wildlife and rocky shoreline are, all at once, simply breathtaking!

I’m a veteran designer. I turn raw content into clear, memorable novelty. I aim to persuade, seduce, cajole, educate. To tickle that reluctant smile with an aH-Ha! and a WOW! In Paul Rand’s words, “to make the obvious interesting.” Look to this day for it and it alone is life. In its brief course lie all the essence of your existence: … The Glory of Growth … The Satisfaction of Achievement … The Splendor of Beauty … For yesterday is but a dream and tomorrow is but a vision. But today well-lived makes every yesterday a dream of happiness, and tomorrow a vision of hope.” – Kalidasa, Fifth Century Indian poet

RiverFire Glass is located in a lovely 17th Century town in Connecticut. It is a tiny studio hidden deep in the woods, perched on a rocky hill and peeking through the trees over a beautiful and pristine river valley. The changing light, trapped fog, long vistas and visiting wildlife offer constant inspiration. The running river and the tempering glass are a visual metaphor of how every life ebbs and flows, sometimes calm and tranquil and sometimes wild and frothy, seeking new trails yet always flowing, always exciting. The Process: Kiln Fired Glass; from cold and brittle to warm and flowing, ending up in a very tactile, luminous piece that both holds and reflects light. No two pieces are exactly alike although there are common themes within the various series. Each piece starts out as a concept, sometimes sketched out, more often it percolates in Jeni’s brain, and then she starts cutting glass, mosaicking pieces together, cutting again; even the small jewelry items are made up of multiple pieces of cut glass. When a tray is loaded and ready it is placed in a large kiln and brought up to temperatures between 1400 and 1800 degrees. Due to the composition of […]
