Repair needed

| 0

I need help with a repair.
The artist John Nutter in B.C. sent me a glass feather which broke in transit. It is a clean break. He says it is a simple fix with UV glue. One of you would know. Is there someone who would help me fix this piece? I’m in SE but would bring the piece. See below. It’s about 14″ long.
Hopefully

Quest for Uroboros

Does anyone know where I can purchase any or all that is left of Uroboros 60-93.  Most companies are out – Uro by Yoc isn’t making that color.  I’m hoping that someone has a stash of it and is willing to part with it at any price.  thanx

Please email or call  503-245-1313 jbls13@comcast.net

Guild Member Looking for Art Donations for Furball Auction

| 0

PNW Glass Guild Member Debbie Cross: I am requesting donations for the Furball, a big gala in May and this year’s theme is Cattyshack/golf.  We expect over 250 attendees. I’m trying to help with procurement for their auction and thought I’d reach out to some fellow glass artists. I understand they always do well with art.

I volunteer for the Feral Cat Coalition of Oregon, a non-profit group that spays and neuters feral cats preventing literally millions of unwanted cats on the streets. Last year they helped over 8000 cats. Their biggest fundraising event, Furball, is coming in May.

If you happen to have something you could donate, or know someone else who could, it would be greatly appreciated. Anything cat themed really does well at these events. Donors will be listed in the program book. I could, of course, pick anything up.

If you would like to know more about FCCO, go to http://www.feralcats.com/who-we-are.

Best,

Debbie Cross

Looking for fasson paper

| 0

Those who do stained glass may remember the fasson paper that Cline Glass used to sell. For those who don’t, it’s a white vinyl (like contact paper) product approximately 24×24 inches. I have had a supply of it that is quickly dwindling as, for the last 13 years, I have had my glass students use it for their patterns. I would love to know if there is a distributer/supplier out there. If you know of a source please let me know. Thanks in advance! Sharon Dunham dunhamsw@frontier.com

Rogue Ales and Spirits

| 0

Hi there! I have a unique question/request!

I work for Rogue Ales and Spirits and we are planning an event for pre-Valentine’s Day (in order for people to create gifts). We’d love to have an engraver come to our event and engrave glass bottles for our attendees. (We want a professional to handle the actual engraving.) Along with this activity, we’ll be doing spirits tastings and have some card-making supplies, so it should be fun! We’d pay an hourly rate for the event. Let me know if glass engraving is something y’all do and if you’re interested in attending the event at Rogue Eastside Pub on February 10th. Thanks so much!

Studio Safety

| 0

Does anyone know of someone who can advise me on how to keep my home studio safe for myself and my family.  I’m wondering how people clean the air in their studios.  I’m specifically concerned about the particles left in the air from Thin Fire after firing fused glass.  Are there professionals who can come to a studio to advise on important safeguards for home studios.  I do fused glass and live in Portland.  My phone # is: 503-421-5888.  My email is farmrage1@msn.com

Partnership Opportunity

| 0

Hi Glass Artists,

I’m an artist based in SE Portland who makes unique and fragile (non-glass) sculptures; I’m making too many to give away, and thus I’m on a venture to make them sellable. I am making a website, getting all the photos taken, preparing to approach brick and mortar retailers, and looking for a glass blower who wants to have a collaborative, creative, compensated partnership with me.
I currently have upwards of 50 small sculptures made out of dried plants and a bit of hot glue. Their longevity, value, and craft-vs-art-liness will be improved greatly by being held in a glass structure– I envision a clear bell jar or terrarium of sorts, but I’m so open to creative input from another artist.
If you’re a glass artist who is cool, collected, and looking to start a casual venture, please feel free to contact me at spylockgertrude@gmail.com
Thank you all for your time,
best best best,
Spylock Gertrude
