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.
Robert Bergeron & George Deacon, Chad & Krissy Weeks, Diane Rabideau-Wise, Joanelle Mulrain, Joy Poulard, Koula Redmond, Larry Wilson & Laurie Hitzig, Lynette Matyi, Morrison Pierce, Shaun Thurston, Susan Ober, Thomas Hager, Thony Aiuppy, Virginia Cantore, Jeff Whipple, and myself.
Welcome to CoRK, Side B.
I’m joining forces with other local glass artists to make a big order from BE. I’ve placed other orders for molds and things and I’ll be ready to go when I get in my studio.
