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.

 

Fused Large Budweiser Bottle

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!

Colorful “Windows” Glass Sun Catcher

Red Glass Sun Catcher

How do you like this Glass Sun Catcher?  This glass piece came together slowly.  I had fused two layers of clear.  I tried isopropyl alcohol to clean the glass, because someone told me it is a great glass cleaner.  The two layers of fused glass fused perfectly.  So, after that, I didn’t have a plan for what I was going to do with the glass.  So, it sat for a little while. 

For some reason, I thought I would fuse a red border on the clear and as I was cutting out the border, the rest of the design came into my mind.  I fused the red border onto the clear glass and then I added the rest of the glass. 

I thought it would be a glass sun catcher, because the sun would sparkle through the “windows.”   Tell me what you think of it!  Tell me how you would have designed it!  I’d love to hear your ideas!

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.

Craft Fair Booth

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