This week in the studio has been really busy, holiday shows are coming up and I’m making a lot of fused bottle glass animals. I’m a little tired of making the same old thing, so I gave the black cat a little redesign, here he is in process:
And here he is after fusing, I like it quite a bit:
I also spent some time making a beautiful piece of artwork for the Friends of Great Salt Lake fundraiser. You may remember the Brine Shrimp plates I made for this organization last spring. Here is their donation piece. It’s 18″ wide x 9″ and 3/8″ thick. This is a recycled glass table top that has been cut, coldworked, painted with silver mica and then slumped. After it was slumped, I hand cut the sandblasting mask and sandblasted the pattern on.
And last, but not least, my cats have been intently watching the compost bins through the window this week, and I finally figured out what they were looking at.
