Private Fused Glass Ornament & Tree Class

I really love giving fused glass classes. Two people who have taken classes with me before asked me if their daughter could take a class with them. I’ve been a bit concerned about giving a class to children under 18 (glass cuts), but since Jeremy and Julie have taken two […]

It’s Relay Changing Time Again

It’s Relay Changing Time Again

I’ve been tracking how often my kilns require their relays change. For my big evenheat kiln it’s been a bit over a year and of course it’s that time again. It was kind of interesting this time, I fired a schedule I’ve used numerous times, but it had an error. […]

2nd Amendment

You know one of my favorite things about Art, including fused glass, is it can represent a cause that you believe in. I created a sconce for my mom, I created a gift for my nephew’s retirement, and I made the pendants and magnets for “I Believe in You”, etc. […]
