glass and the recycle center

Hi fellow artists, I'm trying to do a late spring clean, and I've got many pounds of scrap glass left over from experimentation that aren't really re-usable, and I need them out of the way. My local recycle center accepts 'clear' glass (usually clear bottles, etc.) and 'colored' glass (i.e. brown an...

Steve,

thanks for posting that info.

Re: Physical art objects or digital art? Their impact on us

I read some, and skimmed some-- not too much, really-- of Don's link. Something must be wrong with my brain. I understood some parts of it, and that was troubling, but other parts hurt to read, which was somewhat comforting. Is there a doctorate degree somewhere where a person can actually learn to ...

Re: s/steels rings

Hi Paul, cutting the ring can be made to work. It's just that the fiber paper is much easier, and much less destructive. You could probably cut the ring and place kiln bricks, or some other weights, around the edge of the ring to hold it together during firing. Or you could weld on a nut and screw f...

Re: Silver leaf/foil

@ Kevin I'd heard of yellow staining when silver corrupts kiln shelves. Are there other concerns when in the studio environment also, other than just being messy to work with? (Full disclosure, I've not worked with either leaf or foil as an inclusion, so the question may seem silly and the answer is...

Re: New tutorial

Those are fun, and a lot of possibilities exist. I had a similar idea a few years back with some scrap pattern bar pieces, but never followed up--just left it sitting in the 'try it someday' pile.

Now I'll brush off the dust and go with the 'flow'.

Thanks for sharing, Laurie.


warm regards,

Eric

Hi Saracen, I'm not very familiar with the 'boiled glass' technique, but are you placing a dam around the perimeter? Posting your set-up and the firing schedule you intend to use may help gather some replies... Best of luck! warm regards, Eric p.s. Never apologize for the metric numbers. Maybe one d...

Thanks, Cynthia.

Do you know what is happening to the elements when salts evaporate in a kiln?

I'm curious what chemically happens to the elements. I should've paid more attention in my high school chemistry class!

Paper Mache / Papier Mache

Okay, I think I know the answer here, but I wanted to make sure someone else hasn't had a bad experience, and ruined their kiln... My toddler and I made a big (make that huge!) mountain and tunnel out of paper mache for his train set. We've got the first layers on, and they're taking days to dry. Yo...

Re: Matte slumped pieces

Hi Cynthia,

I'm not familiar with float, being a bullseye fuser, but your results in that piece are intriguing. I'd love to see your final results, if you can/care to share.

Hi Dairy, There are many of us that've played with the stacking technique, which is a lot of fun. I've done a little of it, though not extensively; I was fortunate not to have the issues you're describing. what sorts of schedules are you firing?

Re: Thin Opaque Bullseye

Hi Dairy,

if you could give a fuller description of your glasses used, your firing schedule, your layup/layout, and your process, I think you'll get better information.

warm regards,

Hi all, I've a new circumstance that I'd like advice on: I was contacted approximately a year ago by an art consulting firm that is out-of-state.
