Re: Signing work for Magless

Lots of excellent ideas for future reference... Before I shipped them on Wed., I tried black sharpie on a sample and discovered I could ever so slightly see it when light was able to shine through the piece. So for this batch, I just left the etched signature without color. But I appreciate knowing ...

Signing work for Magless

Greetings All! Today I am planning on signing my Magless pieces and getting them into the mail! Yeehaw! However I could use a little advice before I do so. My plan is to dremel etch my signature on the back of each piece. The base glass is white which will make it difficult to see the etching. What ...

Re: Fusing with metal

For smaller, jewelry type projects, there is also this interesting product called PMC (Precious Metal Clay) sheet that is fun to play around with, albeit expensive because it is thicker silver than leaf. It it really quite cool! http://www.firemountaingems.com/itemdetails/H204849BS You can use shape...

Re: New Kiln - glass cracking

I see dichroic components to the design...Could it be possible that neighboring dichroic pieces would cause this effect when the dichroic coatings touched? Just curious if that may have been a factor in this...

Re: The Studio Glass Movement

I would have enjoyed seeing Lalonde's presentation. I wonder if it was recorded or available on DVD? The impression I am getting after talking with a couple folks, is that the Higgins may have attended some GAS meetings, but they were not heavily involved. I personally happen to be more intrigued by...

Re: The Studio Glass Movement

I would still argue that Higgin's were part of the Studio Glass Movement, (just another facet or branch of the movement) and that they made significant contributions that were, what I would deem as more ART than craft. They may have lost a little respect from their peers when they went commercial fo...

Re: The Studio Glass Movement

The Higgin's were at at least one of the Toledo workshops. The first. They had been successfully working with glass (fusing and slumping) in their living room for 20 years prior to the Toledo worshops. I've heard them referred to as "Early pioneers in studio glass"...But if Studio Glass wa...

The Studio Glass Movement

Just a little question burning in my wee brain for some time now regarding the Studio Glass Movement in America: I'm curious why it appears that Michael and Frances Higgins have been, for the most part, excluded from the conversation. Why do you suppose that is? I know there are folks here who are p...

Santa brings power tools!

I was the lucky recipient of a 8" Bench Top Drill Press for Christmas. Yeah baby! My Generous Uncle seems to think I may want to consider one with more speeds/power. Having never used one before, I am beginning to do my homework on the subject...From what I have read so far, I think this will w...

Re: SOFA Chicago 2012

I definitely felt borderline ADD as I bounced from one booth to the next. Unbelievably stimulating! This was my first time there and I definitely see the need to plan for more than one day the next time around. There is just SO much to observe. I loved having a opportunity to interact with the artis...

SOFA Chicago 2012

Posted a few pictures, including some truly fabulous work I happened upon by fellow Warm Glassist Doug Randall, on my blog of SOFA Chicago for anyone interested...Photos were taken with my iphone, so the quality was pretty good on some, and not so great on others. I wandered past Doug's work hoping ...

Re: New Bowl

It reminds me a little bit of a 1970's color palette but with a modern, more pleasing to the eye twist. Nice job!

Re: Chuck Close

I have been mulling over this post for a while now in my mind. Perhaps I am lead by "emotions" or perhaps you could say, I'm a "glass collector" at heart...If I had more funds, I would invest in Glass Art and surround myself with more of it. My first piece would be a Toots Zynsky...

Re: Miniature landscapes

The insects are what will make this piece sell, if that is your intention. If your goal was to make a stand alone piece of art, you are complete without the insects. Sell, or art? That is the question. I'm totally cool with the fact that they SOLD...Thank you AAE Glass! I aspire in earnest to make ...

Re: Miniature landscapes

I do appreciate the feedback and insights shared...Incidentally, they ended up being some of the first ones that sold at the show today. I probably should have had them priced higher...lol Will keep up with the experimentation!
