Looking for an Artist – Glass Slump

| 0

I’m looking for an artist to help me create a glass slump of my torso while pregnant.  I’m in Portland, Oregon, willing to do a little travel.

My mom had an artist friend who took a plaster cast of my mom’s torso while 8 months pregnant with me and created a “glass slump” from the piece by laying a sheet of glass over the mold in a kiln. I would love to recreate it for myself. Unfortunately, we’ve not been sccessful in contacting the original artist.

I have photos to share with someone who’s interested in the project. I’m capable of creating the original mold myself, but I’m unsure of the necessities of creating a mold that would be glass and kiln worthy for the final step, and of course would need somone who could execute the final steps!

Please text or email Ariel at 509.592.8690 or “Subject: GLASS SLUMP” will be sure to get my attention!

Thank you!

Only 2 weeks until the Vendor Fair!

| 0

The Vendor Fair is nearly here and it’s going to be great!  Our fabulous Sponsors have donated over $2,500 worth of products.  We have sheet glass, glass clay kits, rod sampler kits, dichro sheet, dichro sticks, molds, hardwood stands, metal stands, vitrigraph and more!  

You’ll be able to purchase some of your favorite products and I know of a couple of products new to the market that will be for sale at the event.  Some of our Vendors also offer special discounts at the event, so you don’t want to miss out!

Vendors accept debit and credit cards. Prize tickets will be cash only sales.

We still need more people to sign up for some simple volunteer tasks.  You could sign in people as they arrive, sell prize tickets or stack tables at the end of the event.  If several more people will volunteer, no one needs to work more than about 1/2 hour to make this a great event for us all.

Please sign up for a task:

Please sign up for a pot luck item:

Hope to see you all there!

Vendor Fair – More Details

| 0

We’ve got a great line up of Vendors and hoping to add a couple more. You’ll be able to purchase, art glass, dichroic glass, vitrigraph pots, hardwood stands, vitrigraph, cane and murini, and a new grinding tool made by one of our own members (and Sponsor).

Let’s not forget about the prizes! We have so many wonderful items donated by our fabulous Sponsors just for this event. I’ve already received a few boxes and more are on the way. You’ll be able to purchase tickets to win any one of these fabulous items: molds, art glass, hardwood stands, modeling glass starter kits, dichroic glass, vitirgraph and more!

All of the donated items will be displayed on tables with a container for you to drop 1/2 of your ticket to try to win that item. Drawings will happen throughout the event, but purchase your tickets early so you don’t miss out on any of the items. Tickets will be 2 for $1.00 and will be sold for CASH only.

There’s a lot going on during the event and only 2 of us on this project, so we need some volunteers for different tasks. Volunteers may be needed for up to 45 minutes, but you’ll definitely have plenty of time to shop and eat. Please click on this link and let us know how you can help:

Don’t forget to renew your membership before this member only event!

Looking for informal glass/tile mosaic groups interested in sharing time and skills

| 0
I’m fairly new to creating tile/glass mosaic art and am looking for an informal group that meets to work on individual projects together. I’m thinking drop-in open studio, part social, part sharing of ideas, etc. Does anyone know of any groups in the Portland area and/or have any suggestions on where I might find a group?

Play Day: Copper Foil & Solder, Seattle

| 0

Matt Seger, one of our newest members, suggested a copper foil and soldering Play Day. I volunteered my garage (near the Zoo in Seattle). Even if you usually just do fusing, knowing a bit about soldering can help you hang your pieces. If you’ve already done ordinary copper foil, have you tried doing overlays or incorporating seashells or sticks in a piece? Do you know the quick way to burnish foil onto glass globs?

I have space for up to 6 members. Are you interested? I’m trying to pick a date and time that work for the most folks: which of these 3 possible dates/times works best and which don’t work at all for you?
1) Sunday March 26th at 1pm
2) or Wednesday March 29th at 9:30 am
3) or Wednesday March 29th at 1pm?
