May is fully booked with 4 exhibitions and I'm busy making enough pieces for them all. But for the last few days I couldn't help but experiment a bit with a new technique I've been wanting to try for ages. I came across an e-book about Glass Fusing with Powders and was hooked. The book is written by a Swedish glass artist Lena Beckeus and I can highly recommend it (for glass artists that is....as you will need a kiln :)) ...easy to follow if you haven't done anything like this before and no need to make same things as the author... Below a photo of my first few samples... Still needing refined, but for a first attempt I'm not too unhappy :)
In addition to all the above I'm also eager to get going with making some new bits of jewellery I learned on the course last week. Glass and silver clay riveted together... Here's a few photos from the course...the pieces I made and the 'makers' on the course with our tutor Erna Piechna to the left. A good few days with lots of fun...
March Hare Collective's Gallery and Shop returns to the Apex for Saturday 7th March 2015. Doors open at 10am and shut 4.30pm. Free entry! All Welcome!
