Abstract Glass and Metal Sculpture by Irene Jalowayski

Irene Jalowayski has been a working as a glass artist for the past twelve years in Palm Beach County, Florida. She works primarily with fused glass, cast glass and mixed media. Her fused art glass pieces are full of color with lots of dichroic glass mixed with beautiful bright backgrounds. She loves to create abstract sculptures which enhance any home and can be placed on a pedestal or shelf.

 

“Heart Wave” bracelet and Necklace by Irene Jalowayski

 

 

For the past few years Irene has been making cast glass sculptures which are created by making a clay mold, casting in plaster then filling plaster mold with glass and firing at 1500 degrees. The mold is destroyed when the piece is removed from it so all are truly one of a kind. This year she has also been casting glass jewelry boxes which have been very popular with clients. Irene said “ casting is a very versatile medium!

SEMINARS  AND  WORKSHOPS:

 

Leslie Perlis

Dimensional Mosaics with Fused and Painted Glass Elements

 

 


Celebrated glass designer Leslie Perlis brings her vibrant and modern style to the timeless craft of mosaics – with a sculptural twist. Leslie’s unique approach weaves together glass fusing, kiln fired surface decorating and mosaic fabrication to create outstanding dimensional sculptures. In this presentation you will learn how Leslie thinks outside the traditional mosaic canvas to create life-size figure sculptures, musical instruments, and many other dimensional creations. Leslie will use photos, videos, and live descriptions to illustrate her complete process starting with the development of a design, through the fabrication and final cleanup of a full-size sculpture. In addition Leslie will introduce her new “Multimedia Vinyl” series that combines fused glass and vinyl record albums to great effect. As a bonus, everyone in this seminar will receive a copy of Leslie’s book Dimensional Mosaics that she will be happy to autograph for you.

 

 

Tony Glander

The Accidental Fuser or Warm Glass Trials and Tribulations

 

Glass Creation by Tony Glander

Experimentation can be an exhilarating adventure, full of thrilling highs and disappointing lows. Join glass artist Tony Glander as he escorts you down a few radical glass pathways. He will illustrate how he puts “landing gear” feet on fused bowls, describe some very cool creations made using shattered tempered glass, and explain a curious technique using molds made from glass in a kiln. Tony’s mantra is: “If you aren’t trying something new, you aren’t learning!” He’ll reveal some his most successful experiments and confess a few of his epic failures. Much of Tony’s work centers on the practice of using every glass temperature in the kiln and he is prepared to share his secret firing schedules with you. Tony’s dynamic teaching style will keep you engaged and boost your creative confidence to be experimentally innovative with your own glasswork.

 

 

 

 

Peter McGrain

This event is a must for anybody who shares a deep passion for glass of any kind. And who knows?… You may even find yourself itching to dive in and start painting on glass yourself.

Making Our Voice Heard: Advocating for the Art Glass Industry in Washington D.C.

Today information travels fast, opinions are developed even faster, and the facts are sometimes lost in between. No industry knows this better than the Art Glass Industry. In the last year our industry has faced increasing scrutiny that in some instances has inhibited our ability to do business. It is time now to be pro-active as a community and industry. Join us for a discussion about the role elected officials can play in helping and hindering our business, and how our industry can position itself to prevent our elected representatives and governing agencies from doing us harm.

McMow Art Glass & Wardell Publications
Organizer of GLASS QUEST 2017

McMow Art Glass offers the best in stained glass windows and beveled art glass, as well as beautiful designs in carved, etched and faceted glass. Located in Palm Beach County, Florida since 1976 McMow Art Glass maintains an excellent working relationship with top builders, architects and designers and regularly ships their work throughout the US, Europe and South America.  With our experienced staff of glass craftsmen and designers, McMow Art Glass is able to take every client’s concept and create a clearly outstanding work of art for any residence, commercial building or place of worship.
Visit us at: www.mcmow.com

Wardell Publications Inc. was founded in 1983 by Randy Wardell. In 1977 Randy opened a full service stained glass studio offering everything from Suncatchers to Cathedral windows (well maybe church windows is a more apt description). The studio also offered glass craft instruction and sold the related tools, glass & materials. The name of the company was Sandpiper Studios and it was (and still is) located in Belleville, a small city in eastern Ontario, Canada with a population of 38,000, so the axiom “anything [in glass] for a buck” wasn’t too far off.

Randy’s stained glass students would often ask for the pattern to make of one the custom designed lampshades on display in the Sandpiper Studios’ showroom. Encouraged by these requests he conducted a little market research that revealed a need for reliable, full-size pattern books. So in 1983 he formed Wardell Publications and released his first lampshade pattern book. Since then he has personally written 12 additional books and Wardell Publications Inc has released more than 50 products since it began.

On Small Business Saturday, November 26th, McMow Art Glass Offers Discounts For You And Donations To Local Elementary School

Small Business Saturday was started by American Express in November, 2010. It encouraged holiday shoppers to patronize brick and mortar businesses that are small and local, especially during the busiest time of the year for shopping. This initiative has been wildly successful and McMow Art Glass is honored to be a part of it.  The Rickie Report shares the exciting details of McMow’s discounts on classes and how purchases will also benefit the Highland Elementary School!  Be there on Saturday, November 26th!

One of a Kind Cuff by Irene Jalowayski

 

 

Irene Jalowayski is a Florida native who was raised in Miami, Florida but spent much of her adult life in California. Eleven years ago Irene returned to West Palm Beach.  Working with glass has allowed her to express creativity and love for color, shape and form. Until this year all of Irene’s work had been with fused glass. She  creates sculptures, functional vessels, bowls, vases and Judaica including menorahs and mezuzahs.

More recently, Irene began exploring cast glass.  Casting is more complicated and difficult than working with fused glass. A clay sculpture is made first and then cast in plaster. Once the plaster is dry, the mold is filled with glass and fired to 1450 degrees for 38 hours. Then mold is broken away from the glass sculpture. The resulting piece of solid glass beautiful and substantial. Each piece is always one of kind!

“Under The Sea” Cast Glass by Irene Jalowayski 

Irene chose to work with glass because says she has always loved to look at it and to feel it. Long before she began to work with glass she was collecting it. Her personal glass collection includes pieces by American, Italian and Swedish glass artists. She stated “Creating my own glass pieces has not stopped me from purchasing a beautiful piece of glass if I fall in love with it”.

Irene’s inspiration comes from what is around and from whatever she can imagine. An image in her mind is meticulously designed in glass. Inspiration does not come in only one form. The sight of a lovely flower can be an inspiration.

A wonderful painting can spark an image of something to be made in glass. She also has been inspired by the paintings of Picasso, Miro, Matisse, Mondrian, and Chagall. Her favorite designs are simple, colorful, and pleasing to the eye.

Dichroic Glass and Silver Necklace by Irene Jalowayski

About five years ago she started making beautiful silver and glass jewelry. “The glass colors just naturally go with silver, as they look so beautiful together”.   She also loves making silver and cast glass jewelry with sparkling dichroic glass.
