G.A.S. Chicago

We had the great pleasure to attend the Glass Art Society Conference in Chicago this past week. It was great fun. I was able to attend several lectures on art and design, watch world class artists create signature pieces, and wander the city. I met a lot of new people and was able to connect with old friends once again. I think anytime someone is able to attend a conference in their field it brings new ideas and inspiration to their work.

If anyone is out and about traveling the states going to and fro be sure to stop in Oklahoma and hang out for a while at the studio. It is always a pleasure to see folks and share our space.

New Year

Well it is a new year. We also have a new crucible in the furnace and we rebuilt the small glory hole over the Christmas break. We built a garage as well. Things are looking good at Blue Sage Studios.
Drop by sometime and take a look around and watch us blow some glass.

School Is Back in Session

With the start of the school year things in the studio always change a bit. We are trying a Friday off routine. We shall see how it goes. This results in more compact schedules and we will be having both glory holes running more often resulting in having two folks working at a time. This should help us get folks into the studio and work but not lose time.

OKCMOA Ornaments and Parties

Today is the OKCMOA Ornament Class. It is a great way to learn. Ornaments are repetitive and allow the glassblower to execute multiple skills in a short amount of time. Creating ornaments is great for learning and perfecting skills.
This class has four people and four hours. We usually get about five or six ornaments created per person.

We have been hosting a lot of parties lately in the studio. Times are filling up quickly but if you would like to come into the glass studio for a party call quickly to schedule.
