Work In Progress

Several new small bevel panels getting ready to go to the mall for sale.
In this area of Ohio the clients seem to enjoy clear glasses + bevels + small color accents.

The last one I did looks like this...
Several different textures of glass, a small stripe of accent color and bevels = a nice panel that fit in almost anywhere.

Double Flower Bevel Panel

It has been slow in the studio for the last month. Just internal projects and inventory building for the busy summer season.
Small bevel hearts and little 4" square accent pieces for the First Friday shows. Small things, easily carried and inexpensive to own.

Now that all that is caught up I have started on some larger panels for the Mall and for Etsy.  This is one of them, A double flower bevel with a vibrant blue line and gold dichroic accents. 
At 12" x 24" it makes a nice statement in the window.
It is available on my Etsy site. See the side bar.

Barn Wood & Bevels

It is spring and that means it is time to pump up the inventory.
I need some new entries on Etsy, some new stock in the mall booth,
and a bunch of lower priced pieces for First Fridays which begin in May.
So, my "free time" will be all but gone at least for a while.
How to begin???  
First:   Take a nice bevel cluster,  
add some barn wood surround glass,  
stir in some antique seedy blue,
season with blue and green blobs, 
and top with some accent bevels = a really nice window panel.

Oh, please remember the beginning glass class on May 31st.
There is still space for you if you would like to learn this art.

Next Student Project

I spent a bit of time this last weekend looking for a new project for beginning glass students.  
Change is good ! 
Nothing wrong with the old project it was just time for a change. 
A nice oval landscape with the sun setting over some small hills and a stream in the foreground. It has all the necessary things for a beginning class: straight lines, inside curves, outside curves, and some random wavy lines. 
All the things a beginning student needs 
to learn to cut and foil.

I went ahead and made the project to judge the timing for a class. With a bit of nice glass it cleans up well don't you think?  A piece the students will be proud to show..."I made this in class ! " (big smile) 

Just so you know, the next beginning class is Saturday, April 25th from 9am to around 5 pm.
The investment is only $125.00 with everything included except lunch. You do not need to purchase glass or tools to take the class! 
This is a real savings for you.

First Stained Glass Class

The first class in our new location.
The polar vortex really slowed things down at the studio.
It is hard to give a class if no one can get to you.
But, we finally got it together and the first class was a success.
Congratulations to the students who made a great first project.
Another class next this space.

Autumn Ginkgo Leaves

A few ginkgo leaves  in their fall colors.
The branches stretched  out across the glass.
Some bright fall accents and some very textured glass as a surround.
It is winter here...still.... but we can remember autumns past.
Remember the up coming beginning class on March 15th. There is only one space left.

Etched Glass

A little photo practice and some nice etching on this glass.
Just thought I would share it with you.
It is not easy to get good images of glass, so a bit of practice helps. 

Remember the glass class March 15th, if you would like to learn the art of stained glass. Sign up in the right side bar.

Very Blue

I have always love the way light shines through glass.
In this case, a antique bottle in window light from the back-right.
Just for you to enjoy.

Agate Panel

A quick photo of the agate panel as it goes out of the door.
The image was taken several months ago but the panel just sold.
An abstract using 3 agate slices and a hanging crystal.
All surrounded with bevels and red accents.
A really nice window hanging.
