I thought it was clear?? Is it the picture? Now that I look more closely...is there some flecks of color in it or is it just a subtle shade?

Cool! Did you make it for someone? I'm thinking whoever it is does not have cats (I'm picturing one of mine pouncing on one end and flipping it)...or is it very heavy?

Hi Amy, I guess I was asking if I could ramp down more quickly when tack fusing, but as the temp is the same as fusing, I would suppose not. Thanks for the info. What is your "Salt Spring?" We have a Salt Spring here in Florida. Just a small clear spring off the St. John's River. You have to watch ...

Slump temperatures are much lower than tack/fusing temps so you cannot tack fuse without melting the shape and you cannot tack fuse at slumping temperature because they are too low. So tack fuse and then slump into shape. I slump at around 1200-1250 and tack fuse at the same temp as a full fuse (145...

An interesting counterpart to mine (which I deleted shortly after I posted it because I get self conscious talking about myself and worry too much, so thanks for responding). I'd love to know what you did with all that time in New Orleans :) What is the deal with the painting being "real art" but ot...

Good art quotes

An artist is not paid for his labor but for his vision. James McNeill Whistler An artist cannot speak about his art any more than a plant can discuss horticulture. Jean Cocteau An artist has been defined as a neurotic who continually cures himself with his art Lee Simonson An artist never really fin...

I have had (and been in love with) my Skutt Kilnmaster from Day 1--I can't imagine doing it all manually. I'm still there and watching for every minute of the action at full temps but during the ramp up/ramp down and anneal I'm off sipping champagne and making delightful conversation with my compatr...

I put my vote in for silicone as well--strong and clear. Just used it myself recently to connect glass panels to both acrylic and aluminum and it worked perfectly and doesn't show. Amy Amy, I have a question about silcone. There are so many on the market. What silcone do you use. Silcone adhesive? ...

Hi there--how did you end up in Costa Rica from here? We are having mostly lovely weather actually--it was about 68 and sunny yesterday on Salt Spring. Of course the rains are on their way (its looking a little cloudy today) but even then being in the rainshadow of VI we get so much less than everyo...

COE changing after multiple firings???

Recently in another discussion Catharine mentioned that she had a piece that she had fired I think it was 17 times. I have often had pieces that I fired 5 or 6 times but never any more than that. I know that there are certain colors that can tend to change their COE after being taken to fusing temps...

Tack fusing temperatures are higher than slumping temperatures so anything that has a shape and isn't supported in that shape will melt and deform at a tack fuse temp. When I tack fuse (or "sinter" which I've heard it called which sounds cooler) its more a matter of time than temp. After the initial...

Cynthia's website

I hope she doesn't mind me "outing" her but I just was browsing through a bunch of members' websites (I'm getting ready to add pictures of four new pieces to mine in a week or two and I was thinking about redoing the layout I use and wanted to see how some other people are doing it) and I looked at ...

I should say that I don't think the NGR is a joke. I thought about half of the entries last year were exceptional work. As far as the other half--well that's another long thread/discussion about the direction modern art has taken and whether one thinks it has validity or not.

As I said I would after last year's NGR I did broach the subject of a large glass test tube to my husband (as a counterpart to the breasts wrapped in glass that made it in last year). Strangely he seemed unenthusiastic about it...
