if you want to make expensive more expensive...try flipping the tiles just to flatten the dichro down and fuse at a just above slumping temps to flatten then flip over again and add clear cap. Did this for a large plate and it's impressive but hasn't sold yet - but if it's for yourself go for it. be...

I have carpet with the ends taped down with duct tape - mostly it's for me. It really helps my own feet not feel so tired after a show on the asphalt. Even at indoor shows with conc. floors I always have a carpet down.

another trick is when you create the pattern bar put clear all around the "pattern" that way when chip outs do occure you are not losing the actual pattern. good luck.

Sign the stand! Brock On my gass portraits I sign the frame with the name of the piece in gold pen with my name and date. On the glass itself I actually just sign my initials with the date.

Re: Signatures on frit cast pieces

Is there a bottom to the piece that is flat? Can you sign on the bottom? Or is the whole thing very sculptural having no flat surfaces -and is mounted by a stand? I've been frit casting pieces with alot of texture in them, so I am having a problem signing them. I was etching the signature, but that ...

:D I always ask! Mostly because with over 600 names on my mailing list I do not need to send out a postcard to someone who is going to just toss it.

I would list the entire dimension including stand - the final piece is the art piece in total not just glass vs stand. Just an opinion.

Re: Palo Alto CA Galleries

If you are in Palo Alto during July come to the ACGA Clay and Glass show. See link http://www.acga.net I'll be at that show also. As far as galleries - I'm not that familiar - lots have closed down due to the dot com bust etc. Let me know when you are in town and I'll be glad to show you around etc....

For some simple observations: Sounds like you did benifit a lot from that show and did well - even though you did not cover all your costs. Assuming that money spent on lighting and other "hardware" can last more than one show you may not be that far behind. As a general rule when trying something n...

Re: nurit ?

Just came back from a computer show at the "Cow Palace" in San Francisco. Many of the vendors had a nurit type of set up and we observed a vendor running in and out of the building to get reception on her machine. Saw another vendor holding the machine to the sky to try to get reception! :( I had th...

I carry both only because once in awhile the reception does not go through on the cell phone so I carry my knucklebuster anyway. Or like the first few shows where I would make every mistake possible I would just grab the knucklebuster and use that. I always collect the customer's phone number just t...

Re: Credit Card Machine

if you only do a couple of sales a year it may not be worth it - even if you do lose sales. If they are high end ticket items then it will be worth the money and the ease of mind to run the transaction during the show. To process remotely you need either a phone that is run with analog service - whi...

You might have to consider what other types of mediums can be compatible with glass.
