Lots of Fused Glass Pictures Coming Soon

I just took a bunch of pictures of some fused glass spoon rests, vases, wine bottles stoppers and plates!!  We have a couple of Art Festivals coming up this month, so I have beeen restocking the shelves with more fused glass art.

I also sent a bunch of Grey Goose and Absolut Vodka Bottle Spoon Rests and Trivets to one of our Galleries in Newport, Oregon on the coast – a great Gallery: Inscapes Gallery.   They should be set for a little while!!

More to come…

The 34th Annual Spring Fair at the Douglas County Fairgrounds

 

The Spring Fair was held March 27-29, 2009.  

Christine’s Grandmother passed away on March 26, so she flew back to Minnesota on Friday while David set up for the Spring Fair and was at the booth all three days by himself.  He had a great time seeing past customers and meeting new people.  He sold a wide variety of our glass art, such as dichroic glass pendants, dichroic glass earrings, glass bowls, a daisy sun catcher, a few clear iridized glass vases, a fused Jack Daniels bottle, a fused Crown Royal Bottle, several slumped and fused Grey Goose Bottles, and others.

There was a lot of entertainment for everyone’s enjoyment. There was a stage for a wide variety of entertainment, such as bands, singers, storytellers, bellydancers, etc.

David was so exhausted from the weekend that he didn’t even go to his Monday night game night with his buddies.  He never misses his game night:(

He did a great job even though I wasn’t there.  Thanks so much for his support during my absence.

Fused Large Budweiser Bottle with Embossed Lettering

This Large Budweiser Bottle is about 18″ high.  I fused it with the goal of preserving the embossed lettering.  Someone gave me this bottle at my last Craft Fair and wanted me to fuse it flat and see what happened.

Here is a close-up of the “Budweiser” lettering.  I am very happy with how it turned out!  The “Budweiser” lettering did not melt into the rest of the bottle and it fused flat very nicely.

I have another Craft Fair this weekend and I will be giving this bottle to the lady who gave it to me.  She has a booth at the Craft Fair, too.  I hope she likes it!

She told me she is bringing some more bottles for me to keep and do whatever I want with them.  I can’t wait to see what she is going to give me!!

Our Next Art Festival — 88th Candy Dance Arts and Crafts Fair

The last weekend in September, we are headed for Genoa, Nevada for the 88th Annual Candy Dance Arts and Crafts Fair.  We haven’t been to this Fair, but we heard great things from a couple different people.  So, we thought we would give it a try.  It is a long drive for us, about 10 hours.

We are working hard creating more glass.  We have been selling a lot of glass pendants and glass earrings, so I have been making more.  We also need more Fused and Slumped Grey Goose Vodka Bottles, because they are always a big hit at Art Festivals. 

Maybe we will see you there!

My Glass Projects for Today

I have a custom order for two of the large spoon rests — just like the one I posted a few days ago.

Margaret wants one for her daughter and she wants me to make it with a pale amber color glass with a black frit swirl.  The other one she wants for her sister-in-law and she wants this one to be black with a white swirl.

I am making more of them at the same time, because I really love this new mold.  I will be putting them on my website and selling them at Art Festivals.

Today, I also slumped three Grey Goose Vodka Bottle Spoon Rests.  They are probably cooled off, so I can take a look at them to see how they turned out.

Tomorrow, I think I will take pictures of some glass pieces, so I can post them on my blog!

Fused Champagne Bottle

A gentleman sent me this gorgeous Champagne Bottle that was very special to him and his wife.  He said that they drank the Champagne in Italy while celebrating their sister’s 50th birthday.  However, he didn’t tell me this until after the fusing and after he found out that the paintings didn’t burn off in the kiln.  Before I fused it in the kiln, he told me that it didn’t matter if the painting burned off or not.  He just wanted to give it a try. 

Thinking about it now, I know that I would have been very nervous while fusing the bottle, if I had known how special the bottle was to him.  Now that I know how special the bottle was to him and his wife, I am so very happy that the paintings didn’t burn off.  Now they have a very special, gorgeous and unique Champagne Bottle!

Masters Glass Art Booth at Brookings Festival of the Arts

 We had a corner booth and the following picture is the front of our booth.  We have glass earrings, glass pendants, fused and slumped Grey Goose Vodka Bottles, and other small glass pieces.

 

 

The following picture is the other side of our booth.  We set up a shelving unit, so we would have room to display more of our glass art, such as glass plates, glass bowls, glass vases, and glass candle holders.  We had electricity, so we put up lights to brighten up our glass.  We hardly needed it, because it was so bright.  However, the weather in Brookings is very unpredictable.  Last year the weather wasn’t quite as nice.

 

 

Tell us what you think about our booth!  What would you change?  What do you like about it?  We’d love to hear your opinions!

Absolut Vodka Bottle Spoon Rest

Absolut Vodka Bottle

I have been slumping and fusing other alcohol bottles.  Most Absolut Vodka Bottles do not have a label that needs to be taken off.  All of the writing on the Absolut bottles is etched into the bottle with glass enamel, so it doesn’t burn off in the kiln.  These are cute little spoon rests.  I have also fused them flat.  These bottles are great for Absolut Vodka lovers.

Our Booth at the Christmas Bazaar in Portland

This is our booth at the Christmas Bazaar.  We added more lights so our glass would sparkle and shine.  We had a corner booth, so we were able to display our Glass on two sides.

This is the other side of our booth.  Let us know what you think about our booth!  We’d love to hear from you!

Someone Had Us Fuse This Wine Bottle

     Fused Glass Wine Bottle            Fused Glass Wine Bottle

When we were at a Craft Festival, this couple saw our Fused Grey Goose Vodka Bottles.  They told us that they had some wine bottles that they thought were similar to the Grey Goose Bottles, meaning that the words and pictures were glass enamel and wouldn’t burn off in the kiln.  The next day, they brought one of the bottles to see what we thought.  So, they wanted us to fuse the wine bottle to see how it would turn out.  This bottle turned out great!  The couple loved it, too, and sent us two more wine bottles for us to fuse!
