Glasswork and Classes Resume!

GEA has been given the go-ahead from the county Health Dept. to resume classes. So, 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. I'm working on some holiday class discounts now.   

The GEA online store is up and running--Click "Buy Glass" on the menu for more info. I added new BirdBowls Aug. 1, 2020, so take a look on the GEA Garden page at those. More on the way. You can dream of 2021's garden season now and get ready. 

I'll be adding GEA Party items soon.  

Other items still in the works include putting together a member's area, enhancing the classes sections, and MORE. (It's mind-boggling, for sure.) I may have a presence at the AVDI holiday art market in Buena Vista--more on that coming soon.

So be patient if you check in and things look a little wonky. It's temporary. When at last everything is up and running, I'll send an e-mail blast out to let you know. 

What?? You're not sure if you're on the e-mail list?? Well, then, use the JOIN menu button above to fix that. 

In the meantime . . . 

POP-UP Classes are Ongoing! 

"Beginning Glass Fusing with Micro-kilns" classes are almost always available.  For about a 2 1/2 hr. 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 faxcinating world of glass and glass fusing.  

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, look for an "Introductory Kiln Fusing" class later this year!

Fun Glass Facts:

  • Glass is an extremely viscious 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). 

 

Processing Mobile Orders:

 

  • I can accept major credit and debit cards ON SITE provided there is cell phone access. So use your cards and save your cash for other things.
