NEW Glass in the Works

I've been working on NEW Southwest-themed plates and plate sets this past few months. These sets feature some gorgeous OpalArt glass made by Oceanside Glass and Tile (formerly Spectrum). 

I also have some as-yet-undrilled NEW light wall sconces from some stained glass a friend gave me last year--2 of them are primarily Cobalt blue (always a great seller) with wisps of lighter blue and dark green, and also one each of purple-green-lavendar and an opaque blue-vanilla mix. I am waiting on another friend's promised drill press to finish these up. Hopefully, that will happen SOON. 

 

I am told the Chaffee County Home and Garden Show will go off in 2022.  I'll keep you posted on those developments. 

If you have friends or family here visiting, a fused glass class is a memorable way for them to have fun making something beautiful. To schedule, click the "Classes" link above for more info and give me a call. My schedule is pretty flexible. 

The GEA online store is up and running! Click "Buy Glass" on the menu for more info. 

Other items still in the works include enhancing the classes section, some discount coupons for classes and merch around the holidays, and MORE.  So be patient if you check in and things look a little wonky. It's temporary.

POP-UP Classes are Ongoing! 

"Beginning Glass Fusing with Micro-kilns" class times are widely available, though I am working a couple of part-time day jobs to supplement----no, let's be honest----pay the bills.  But for about a 2 1/2 hr. time investment, you can walk away with jewelry that catches people's eyes and that you can be proud of. And you'll be on your way to learning about the fascinating world of glass and glass fusing.  (Hey, guys have taken the Beginning Fusing with Micro-kilns class just to see the kilns heat to 1500 degrees in 3 minutes.)

Consider a Pop-Up class as a gift. I guarantee you a unique, creative time. SEATING IS LIMITED to 4 students per class, but with most days and times available for "Pop-up" classes, you shouldn't have trouble finding a day/time that works for you or your friends and family. Just call 719-395-1789 to schedule.

FUTURE CLASSES 

In addition to the "Basic Glass Fusing with Micro-kilns" class, I intend to start these classes as I have Beta volunteers to test the class instructions:

  • Small Platemaking

  • Garden Birds

  • Birdbaths

 So stay tuned!

Fun Glass Facts:

  • Glass is an extremely viscous substance--that is, it resists flowing. But even in its "solid" state (say, in a window pane), the glass is actually in liquid form.

  • The dichroic coating process came about through electronics manufacturing. The colored, shiney layer is made from vaporized quartz, titanium, or other metal oxides (gold or silver, usually) affixed to the glass with an electron beam. This layer can transmit one color of light and reflect its opposite color (when affixed to clear glass).
