Empty Molds for Empty Bowls

 The San Antonio Glass Art Guild (SAGAG) will be participating in the San Antonio Potters Guild 15th annual Empty Bowls event benefiting SAMMinistries. I was in such a rush to finish some bowls to deliver to tonight's SAGAG meeting that there wasn't time to photograph them. All that was left to photograph were these empty molds after donating my empty bowls. You will find a few glass bowls  among the many fabulous handcrafted bowls at this years event. For each bowl purchased guests will enjoy delicious soup and bread from local restaurants. All proceeds benefit San Antonio families facing homelessness who are served by SAMMinitries.

The Power of Powders

I recently facilitated my first workshop for 2015 at Roadhouse Arts. It was two days of nothing by powder techniques for the fused glass artist. We had a blast filling the kiln to capacity with the various techniques being taught and a few test tiles based on questions or ideas.
The workshop space at Roadhouse is fabulous. I am looking forward to my next workshop there Sunday, February 15th, cast glass flowers. This is a great class for  experienced fusers as well as complete beginners. Check the entire line up of workshops at RoadHouse Arts.
