Thanks for posting your guest blog, Alex (and for getting me off my butt to get this blog started!). I enjoyed reading about your experience at the Intro to Fusing class.
Glass is an extremely fascinating medium to work with. I was drawn to it for a number of reasons. I like that it is a mix of technical and artistic disciplines. The whole study of how glass is made and how it reacts in the kiln delves into the scientific, technical side of the art. The design aspect of working with glass is equally as expansive. The options available in designing kiln glass projects are endless. Days could be (and have been!) spent browsing Youtube videos of glass design techniques, products and projects. Looking through fused glass pins on Pinterest is another way to make time disappear! So many ideas...so little time!
Since January 2017, I have made glass my full time endeavor. I opened Fused Finery with the intention of having a gathering place for those interested in the art...a place to come learn, collaborate with other like minded souls and to create and bring your ideas to life.
Whether glass has just recently sparked your interest or your talent is more developed, I hope you'll find my studio a comfortable place where you feel inspired to learn, work and socialize.
