Fall / Holiday 2023
THAN YOU to all the wonderful folks who stopped by the GEA booth at the Buena Vista Christmas Open on Dec. 2nd!! We had a great time up in the spruced-up Museum, and even though it was COLD and WINDY outside, it was warm and full of cheer, chili, and Santa on the inside.
Those of you -- and there were MANY -- who picked up class fliers for a future "Beginning Glass Fusing with Micro-kilns" class can redeem them until Dec. 31, 2024. Hope to see you sometime this coming year. You'll have fun, I promise, and leave with one or more pieces of jewelry YOU created.
Cart Icon issue: for some reason, my Cart icon disappeared for a while. I thought I had the issue fixed, but I had to work on it again. My apologies if any of you have wanted to order online and couldn't. Wix has made some software updates, so hopefully, things are fixed now. Please reach out to me if you encounter any other issues--there's more than one way to get your order placed. Thanks.

See Fall-inspired and Holiday-themed pieces at The Crooked Cauldron, 711 US Hwy 24, in Buena Vista. John and Lisa are GREAT to work with, and Lisa knows her way around the apothecary and CBD world.

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.
I can custom-make you a certificate to give as a gift for someone special. Just ask.
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.

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).
