Glass and Oklahoma

I believe that Oklahoma is on the cusp of something great. We have great weather, great people, great attractions, great cost of living. Granted we rank at the top of most social ills scales too but the offset of wonder is to great to ignore.
We need glass blowing studios in this state. We need the OKCMOA to receive a grant to build a full scale art glass facility in the city. We need Dale Chihuly or Randy Walker to come in and create a premiere place for glassblowing and learning the art of working with all mediums of glass. I could do this too with the right funding. If you have about a half of million dollars you are willing to invest in the future of this state give me a call.

Is this a great state or what

Tonight Blue Sage Studios was featured on Channel 4 is this a great state or what with Galen Culver. I have not see it but heard good things. I will try to find out if it will air again and let everyone know. The spot is not yet posted to the channel four web site but when it is I will post up a link.
Keep it centered.

New Week

It is a new week. We are blowing today around 4:00 or so. Looking forward to a good day. The Studio is coming together. We are starting to get a good stock of glass for up coming art shows. The Run for the Arts in Stillwater will be our first Spring show.
Wichita was great. Chris was able to get a great deal on a furnace. I am looking forward to seeing it up and running. This should be a good week. Have fun.
Keep it centered.

We are heading up to Wichita on Thursday around 5:00 am. Chris, Drew and I are going to look at a furnace for Chris, some blowpipes, a diamond marver, and various tools. Secondary to the trip, and the reason to go so early, is to head over to Rollin Karg's place to watch them work. I still can't find a link to his website. I am looking forward to the trip and all the things that lie in store.
I am not sure if we will be back for blowing on Thursday night yet or not. Be sure to call if you are planning on heading out to the studio to check and see.
Keep it centered.

Spring Break

At the Blue Sage Studios glass blowing will continue during Spring Break. Whereas I thought I would be going to Santa Fe, NM for the break I have decided not to take that trip. We will be working in the studio most of the break. I look forward to see everyone. Drop by and watch. Call and make a time and we can fire it up just for you too. I hope everyone has a good one.
Keep it centered.
If you get the chance go see the Dale Chihuly glass exhibition over at the Oklahoma City Museum of Art. It can change your life and the way you see the world. Sort of a Suessian kind of experience.

Spring Break

We are looking at the schedule for Spring Break next week. It looks like Brent will be working during the day some. Very few evenings next week. I will get more details out in the next couple of days.
We blew Christmas Oranaments last night and some new oil lamps. Brent, Cali and I filled up one annealher with those and the other about half full with vases. It was a great night.
Brent will be out over the next couple of days and I will be blowing on Thursday evening. We may be working on Friday after school to but I am not sure yet.
Keep it centered.

Brent Jacking

Another one of Brent and Chris. Brent is jacking the neck line of his glass. The jack line allows the glass to break off the blowpipe with relative ease. Posted by Hello

The New Pipe Warmer

This is the new pipe warmer Brent built. You have to heat the blowpipes and punties in order for the glass to stick. This pipe warmer allows for good control of the propane but also has forced air to create extra heat. Very cool, or should I say hot. Posted by Hello

Blowing Glass

Here is a photo of Brent working with Chris in the background and Cali too. Posted by Hello

Monday Night

We were blowing glass last night when Angela called. She was bringing home pizza and wings from 2 Brothers Pizza in Arcadia. We went up and ate and then back to blowing and in about 15 minutes walks Chris and he has two pizzas from his place Italian Jim's in Yukon. Good night for Pizza.
Brent is working on a new series of pieces. Beautiful colors. I will try to get a photo soon. Speaking of photos...
