My first attempt at fan art, other than glass, is of my favorite video game, Journey, by thatgamecompany. They also make Flower, Flow & Cloud.
Whenever I am feeling particularly down, I play this game. The music and visuals are so beautiful, and the game play is not like any other game I have encountered. I always feel better after playing.
I have a new page on the site: Displaying Glass. This is all about how to hang and display glass. Harder than it sounds, I know. Please bookmark the page and check back for updates. Also, email me if you have any suggestions you’d like to see added on there.
Just before my last post, I fell at the studio and fractured my right elbow (specifically my radial head) and then… I got a really bad cold. Knocked me right out. But I’m feeling much better now (I think I’ll go for a walk! LOL). My daughter will be assisting me until I can use my right arm again to cut glass, etc. and the key chains are a perfect little project to keep me going until then. I’ll make a little video about them and post it when I can.
Keep calm and carry on.
The green has copper wire, which is easier to work with, but I will need to double up on the loop to make it sturdy enough for everyday use.
The nickel-chromium wire on the blue one is fine as is, but it’s stiffer when bending. I will try one more test firing with doubled copper wire to make sure my keychains will last!
(As a little bonus, the keychains have an alter-ego as a pendant)
So, as I was thinking about creations I am going to make this year, I decided I needed to know what glasses reacted with what materials or other glasses. Bullseye has a great page with all that information on their site. But I wanted a quick chart I could print and look at while I am working. Here it is. I will also post it on my Glass Links page.
