Linda Vegas and Glenda Kotchish kept buying each other's art. They shared a similar palette and fired their works in kilns. "She works in fused glass; I work in ceramics," Kotchish explains. Finally, they decided to join forces. "The exciting thing was how I was immediately drawn to her colors," Vegas says of Kotchish. "The natural extension is her drawings on glass." They devised a method of transferring drawings to decals by using a printer with iron in its ink. Meanwhile, Kotchish's drawings grew more intricate, with results that are whimsical, humorous and surreal, like the mermaid who prefers shoes on her fins. You can see the results among two dozen sculptures, vessels and drawings at Artworks, adjacent to Plant Zero, from June 27 to July 20. 291-1400 or artworksrichmond.com .
