Art Glass in June
Glass Blowing in July
The James Webb telescope sent back amazing new images of our universe. It reminded me of our installation, Interstellar, a collection of planetary orbs, suspended in space. It was beautiful when we first installed it in 2018, and now with this renewed interest in space, it's become top of mind. In fact, this concept has inspired multiple clients and we're currently working on some new evolutions for them, both in layout and form, stay tuned!
Our wildflower blossoms continue to evolve too, this installation is at Guadalupe Regional Medical Center, and a new batch is budding in the hot shop!
These wall platters are very special and are part of a larger collection, each one represents a member of the family, and together it's just heartwarming.
Glen is working on a sandblasting concept that's been a long time coming. He has an affinity for working with light and shadow through the glass.
And occasionally we do fusing work too, I just love the glow.
The Texas summer heat really worked overtime this July, clocking in 29 days over 100 degrees. With temperatures like this, it's an opportunity to find gratitude in the little things - if anything to keep your mind off the weather! Despite our record month, glass blowing remains our number 1 activity, we just start a little later in the evening. 😀 We hosted friends and families from far and wide in our classes - mostly our friendship globes, because they're the classic first experience, and who doesn't love a classic? And we rounded out our 2 months of mug classes! Thank you for joining us in the inaugural year of mugs!
I found a lot of gratitude in surprising places, at times when the environment was bordering on mundane. The simple beauty of the glass would surprise me or I'd find joy in the perfect fit of a Dr. Pepper inside blown glass. We don't use molds you know, and creating a perfect fit like that just from eyeballing it, well it takes a certain kind of skill.
