Website Update

I recently switched over to Weebly for the website creation. Our friend Nathan Lee got the site started and worked up the layout. He was great to work with and has gotten me motivated to work on our online presence.

When we made the switch over I went ahead and switched over to the Google GSuite for Work. It has been great. I like the Google products. It was a bit of learning curve on getting set up through GoDaddy and pointing servers over to the right location but they have a great help staff and online tutorials.

Take a look at and let me know what you think about the new site.

Summer Clean Up

We have been working around the studio getting things organized again. It is a huge process but lots of fun. The shows in May were great for moving out some of our glass so we can make some more. Summer has been productive. I am working on an installation project. Roy is working on some new shells, Ray is busy getting ready for the GlassWorx showroom next door. Mara is really promoting the building for events and parties. Lots of folks are coming in for lessons and creating new things. Drop in when you get the chance and see what we have been up too.

The Ornament Sessions

Now is certainly the time to book your holiday party at Blue Sage Studios.

The Ornament Sessions
Welcome to Blue Sage Studios where we will be creating a unique hand blown art glass ornaments. There are many names for this style of glass decoration: suncatchers, witches balls, kugles. Typically, the ornament is a three inch diameter ball with a loop on top for hanging.

Individuals will have the opportunity to choose from a variety of glass colors to adorn their creations. Each member of the group will create their ornament using 2000 degree molten glass. It takes about ten minutes to make a piece so be sure to allot a good amount of time when you schedule your group session. Call the studio 405-601-2583 or email Andy Boatman to schedule ornament sessions. The studio is flexible on scheduling but available time slots fill up quickly. We recommend booking at least two to three weeks in advance. The base cost of the ornament session is $120 an hour.

At Blue Sage Studios we can host group events of about any size, from small family gatherings, girls night out, to large group events. Feel free to bring some snacks and drinks and have a party while you are at the studio.

For families, everyone is able to participate. Keep an eye on the little ones as it is a hot glass studio so there are plenty of breakables around. When we are working one also has to assume that everything is hot. Cotton clothing and closed toe shoes (tennis shoes are fine) are recommended. A bottle of water is a good idea.

Blue Sage Studios (1218-C N. Western Ave. Oklahoma City, OK 73106) is located in the Urban Art Building about an block and a half north of 10th on N. Western Ave. We are at the back of the large two story red brick building on the east side of the road. There is parking in the both the north and south lots as well as in front of the building.

Square Market

We are posting items for sale in the Square Market. I am really not very good at the marketing side of business. I use SquareUp for credit card transactions and the market they provide is great.

Ice Cream Social

Several years ago I wanted to try Graeter's ice cream. It was going to cost a lot for shipping so might as well order a bunch to try it all and share. So the Ice Cream Social was born.

Every year around this time. Ray and I buy a bunch of ice cream and invite everybody over to the studio for a scoop or two. My mom usually bakes a cake and some of the ladies in the studio bring some brownies. It is an opportunity to get together and hang out for a bit which really does not get to happen all that often.

So come by the studio (1218-C N. Western Ave.) on Sunday, October 26, between 2:00 and 5:00. Have some ice cream. Relax.

We are in the process of building a mobile glass studio and are planning on giving it a test run on Sunday too. So there may be something new and exciting to see on the glass front.  

Also be sure to mark your calendars for our Annual Holiday Home Show. We hold our home show every year in conjunction with my Aunt Pat at With Joy Nativities. The Home Show is December 5, 6, and 7.

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.
