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,...

Fused Glass Review – Screen Melts

Each month I tried to do a review of some kind of the myriad of Fused Glass DVDs, E-books, Magazines, tutorials, etc. that I watch or read.

Overall I like GPQ webinars, sometimes I think the moderators talk a little too much, but I like the majority of the instructors. This particular review is about Screen Melts...

Just a little background Bullseye has educational videos (some are free {23} some videos {53} are part of the Annual $39 subscription). * Bullseye also...

A Inspirational book for all those who want to add creativity to their lives – including a fused glass artist like me

              While I was in Canada at the “Studies in Powder” class. One of my favorite topics when we all talked was about our favorite fused glass books. Bob recommended the book “Steal Like an Artist” by Austin Kleon. It’s a tiny little book in size, albeit huge in its content. “Steal Like an Artist” is a real inspiration and ironically it has nothing to do with fused glass. At shows, I always...
