July’s Review – Fused Glass Downloads

Posted by on Jul 28, 2016 in Blog, Book Review, fused glass | 0 comments

First full disclosure, I’ve “talked” to Mark Hufford (Fused Glass Artist / Painter) many times via Facebook, email, and messaging. In fact, I begged him to teach here in Colorado and I’m ecstatic that he will be teaching in Denver next year (yes, that’s how booked he is)!! Obviously, I’ll be taking that class!! I consider us friends and I respect his talent immensely. I hesitate to write this review because I wouldn’t want you to think I don’t love them, because I do! (BTW,...

My Trip To New York

My Trip To New York

Posted by on May 14, 2016 in Art, Blog, fused glass | 0 comments

I just finished a 10 day wonderful trip to New York.  Other than not having my husband and daughter with me the trip couldn’t have been any better.  I flew into Buffalo, New York because my Fused Glass class was in Batavia, New York.  My class didn’t start until the 6th of May, but I thought I’d arrive early so I could make a few side trips. When I got to Batavia, I stayed at the Hampton Inn and it was pretty nice and had a good breakfast! For Dinner I...

              What a fabulous 9 days I had in Oregon!! I did so much there is no way I can only write 1 blog, not even 3 blogs will be enough, but I’ll try to keep it to 7 blogs but they may be long! I’ll also be writing about the places I visited other than bullseye and 4 for my bullseye experiences. I got to Portland on Friday September 11th, but I I’ll cover the first couple days later.

Fused Glass Bullseye Video Review

Posted by on Jul 11, 2015 in Art, Book Review, fused glass, Newsletters | 0 comments

              For July’s Fused Glass review I thought I’d review one of Bullseye’s Glass videos. I wrote a “DYK – Did You Know” about Bullseye’s Glass education site in January and so I thought I’d do a review on one of the videos I watched. Just a little background Bullseye has educational videos (some are free {23} some videos {53} are part of the Annual $39 subscription). * Bullseye also...

My Fused Glass week in Canada part 2

Posted by on Jun 29, 2015 in Art, Blog, fused glass | 0 comments

In my last fused glass blog I wrote about how great the ladies were in my class with Bob Leatherbarrow (including Liesbeth). For this blog I wanted to talk about Bob and the glass itself. As I mentioned before, I will not provide any secrets. Bob teaches and will be writing some ebooks (starting in Nov covering these topics). First, I want to talk about the class content. We learned three different wafer techniques. As I’ve mentioned I have done wafer techniques in...

Flameworking Artist

Flameworking Artist

Oh my goodness I just met the best woman her name is Leslie, and she’s a flamework artist / instructor! For those of you who follow me you know I create fused glass artwork. However, I’ve always found flameworking fascinating. I was lucky enough to watch John Veit create a marble once on one of my many trips to Florida to take a class from Tanya. It was mesmerizing, however, I was so overwhelmed by the process and I decided could never do it myself! To be honest...

March’s Fused Glass Review – Iridized Plate Video

Posted by on Mar 14, 2015 in Blog, Book Review, fused glass, Newsletters | 0 comments

        Every month I do a review on a book, video, etc regarding fused glass or anything connected to fused glass. In November I joined the Webinar Wednesday club through Ceramic Arts.  They have a couple fused glass artists, bead artists, ceramic artists, etc.  So today I thought I’d do a review on one of the videos of one of the fused glass artists I’ve been watching. First a little background on the program, as I mentioned they have...

December – Fused Glass Book Review

Posted by on Dec 29, 2014 in Art, Blog, Book Review, fused glass | 0 comments

          40 Great Glass Fusing Projects by Lynn Haunstein BLUF I liked 40 Great Glass Fusing Projects. The introduction is sufficient to get a new fuser started without overwhelming them. The author explained the different types of glass, tools used in fusing, basic skills needed (cutting and kiln wash), creating accents (frit balls, vitrograph, etc), and using the kiln (different firing schedules). Then she got right to the good stuff the...
