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.

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.

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.

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.

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”!

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.

Tracy Rosof-Petersen Removing a large ceramic bowl from the kiln

The technique of Raku pottery happens when art is removed from a gas kiln at around 1800 degrees with gloved hands and tongs lifted from burning flame, dropped into a metal container with combustibles. The glaze crackles from the heat of the flame.

Ceramic artists form their art using clay and prominent, striking glazes that are fired in a kiln numerous times. Exciting, magnificent colors are produced when glazes are applied to bisque clay, re-fired up to 2300 degrees in a red hot kiln.

Encaustic wax is an age old process using hot wax and oils. Hot wax painting involves beeswax to which colored pigments are added and kept molten on a heated palette. After being applied to an absorbent surface, you create an original piece of art. The fun part of encaustic wax is adding mixed media inclusions, photos or any absorbent material. The possibilities are endless.

 

"Past The Garden Gate"

A metal artist using a welding torch combines the cool metal pieces to the heat of the torch to create sculptures or functional pieces such as lamps and furniture. Some of our paper artists brandish the edges of their finished assemblages to give them an aged antique look as the heat of the flames burns the edges.

 

Metal Sculpture by Kelly Dean Manganero

Jewelry artists achieve an individual look in their pieces by using heat. When jewelry is connected together with a soldering tool the heat presses against the cool metal to join the pieces. A different patina is created with flame and various chemicals used make each piece a unique form of art to wear.

Artists that work with various woods can create a very different effect with a selected branding or engraving tool. The wood branded with the heat tool will then achieve an interesting design or sometimes a personalized engraving. The finished piece has a special look that compliments the wood used.

 

"Cool Jazz" Fused Glass by Betty Wilson

“Cool Jazz” Fused Glass by Betty Wilson

Our glass artists use various techniques such as glass formed with the HOT flame of a torch, glass blowing, casting and fused glass in a kiln firing. Fused glass is one of the oldest, sophisticated techniques in hot glass sometimes referred to as “warm glass”. It is an exciting interplay of light and color to look in the glowing red hot kiln and see the soft molten liquid melting together in brilliant form.

 

Gabriele Kraus' Ceramic Sculpture

One of the biggest thrills of firing a kiln is fifteen hours later when the artist opens the kiln lid and views the fascinating and extraordinary design that has emerged! Due to the handcrafted nature of many techniques used and the multiple series of kiln firings at temperatures ranging from 1200 to 2300 degrees, this makes ceramics and glass one of a kind art  – where no two pieces are ever alike.
