Gemini Taurus 3 Ring Saw $50

| 0

I’m selling this for a friend, who moved and closed his glass studio.  It is a used Gemini Taurus 3 Ring Saw.  It seems to work OK and the blade is fine… but it is missing its lower motor cover.  No instructions, but the splash guard and some gear grommets are included.  Sold “as is” or for parts.  Richard Glenn in NE Portland:  503-317-7293 call, text or email richardglen@yahoo.com

Repair 1950s Bitossi “frite” vase

| 0

Hello Guild Members

I got a referral to your guild by Bullseye Glass. I have an interesting problem to solve.

I collect and sell mid century European and American ceramics. One of my favorite pieces is a 1950s Italian piece by Bitossi Ceramiche. The decor of the vase is called fritte, since glass has been added to the ceramic during firing. This is one of the earliest examples of fritte by Bitossi. The glass is rough, with uneven surfaces, bubbles and craquelle; that is part of its charm. Within each color square, the glass sometimes has mixtures of color and opacity. In one of the yellow squares, I believe a piece has cracked so completely as to have fallen out. This happened years ago and was crudely filled with painted plaster; I have removed that repair. I would be interested in having someone look at this vase and give an opinion on what it anything can be done to sensitively repair the glass.  Luckily, the glass has so much variation, it makes it easier to match. My only idea so far would be to do a casting mold of the cavity and cast a piece of glass to fit, but I don’t know if that is possible. I would also be interested in working with someone to make the casting.

The vase is 14.5″ high and the cavity is 5/16″ in diameter. In the attached photo, the round cavity is at the center top of the right photo, in a yellow square.

Thanks so much for your time and consideration.

Correction: Need a glass artist who can do artistic sandblasting to replace a broken plate.

I received this request from Eric Freund and Jackie Young ericfreund01@gmail.com:  “One of our prized plates was unfortunately broken beyond repair. We were wondering if we could work with you in creating a plate similar to the one we lost. ”  I do not do sandblasted etching but was hoping someone in the guild might be interested in talking to them about this project….or may know a glass artist who is not in the guild but does this type of work.  The design is two iris stems on a 16 inch clear plate….not just etched flat/matte but lightly carved and very well done.  If the photo I have is too large to post here Eric can email you a photo directly.    They are located in West Linn, OR. and his email is attached to this post.  Thanks!    -Greta Schneider
