Then each student will have an opportunity to create two 9” x 12” oval serving trays. You’ll start by choosing 2 different Glass Tattoo Stencil designs then create a separate glass oval with each of those designs.

Alice Benvie-Gebhart earned her bachelor and master’s degrees in art education with concentrations in painting and printmaking. She worked as a teacher and painter for many years before discovering fused glass. She now works exclusively in kiln-fired glass.

Murrina (plural murrine) – colored patterns or images made in a glass cane (long rods of glass) that are revealed when cut in cross-sections. The term murrina, derives from Murrino, the name given in 1878 by Vincenzo Zanetti, a Muranese priest and historian, who founded the Murano Glass Museum in 1861 with the intent to restore the lustre of Muranese glassmaking and relaunch the industry that was going through a deep crisis. The crisis was the Bad News. THE GOOD NEWS?? You don’t have to go back in time or travel to the Island of Murano to learn how to make these beautiful murrine. Learn how to prepare the glass, pull the murrine canes, slice the rods to reveal amazing designs, and create your own functional piece of art glass. This is a 3-part intensive and fusing knowledge is strongly recommended. Class size is limited so be sure to sign up soon NOW!

Phil Materio tells The Rickie Report, “We found inspiration in the design aesthetic which has made South Florida a mecca for artists of all kinds. Bright pops of color, tropical weather, and design and architecture from the neighboring cities of both Palm Beach and South Beach provided us with ample inspiration”!

 

 

Our FLORAdia Styles:

The FLORAdia Glass is now available at McMow!

Stay tuned for our upcoming class schedule. We will be releasing special classes which will include exciting ways to use this one-of-a-kind sheet style!

 

 

FLORAdia Glass: A Bullseye/McMow Collaboration!

mcmowIMG_8906

Close-up of FLORAdia Glass Bowl

 

 

 

 

In collaboration with Bullseye Glass Co, McMow worked to create a this one-of-a-kind art glass sheet style. This custom, hand-rolled glass is used for all types of art glass including kiln-formed (fused), mosaic, and stained glass.

 

 

Phil Materio, Vice-President of McMow Art Glass knew that he wanted glass that would feel like South Florida. We pulled inspiration from the colors, art and architecture that have made both South Beach and Palm Beach so famous. When the colors came together it was exactly what he had envisioned – a perfect blend of the these two stunning destinations. He decided to name the glass after his mother Flora Materio. Flora lived in South Florida and often times traveled with Phil to both South & Palm Beach to see McMow’a installations in both areas. Remembering these trips he knew immediately FLORAdia was the perfect name for this new glass creation.

Phil shares, “While I have fond memories of my mom in Florida, it was really her encouragement that led me to immerse myself in the art glass world,” said Phil Materio, Vice President of McMow Art Glass. “I couldn’t think of anyone I would like to honor more than my mom on our 40th anniversary year. She was one of the big reasons McMow even came to be.”

 

 

How is art glass made:

 

“We worked alongside the glass crafter at Bullseye to determine which colors would be compatible with each other. Bullseye has a very similar business model – also getting started about 40 years ago. Like McMow, they know that art glass is a fine art and have pushed the envelope of working with glass year after year”.

 

 

Here’s a video about glass making at Bullseye

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DO7584g57z0

 

 

Glass is made by melting together several minerals at very high temperatures. Silica in the form of sand is the main ingredient and this is combined with soda ash and limestone and melted in a furnace at temperatures of 1700°C. Other materials can be added to produce different colors or properties.
What is Art Glass? colored glass that’s manufactured for use in art and architecture. This type of glass can be used for stained glass and mosaic work, and most are tested-compatible for fusing and other methods of forming glass within a kiln.
