Sometimes, things happens. A mold gets dropped, an edge gets knocked against a hard surface, stress occurs during a firing, or a mold arrives broken in shipment. Before you give up and toss out a broken mold or texture tile, think about other ways you can use the pieces that remain: http://jestersbaubles.blogspot.com/2015/08/harvest-moon-repurposing-fused-glass.html
Recently I created a koi platter using paints from Unique Glass Color (UGC) and a Creative Paradise texture tile. I planned to create a short tutorial, so I took pictures of the process along the way. Today I received a few questions about the process, so it’s time to write a blog post: http://jestersbaubles.blogspot.com/2015/08/fused-glass-koi-platter.html

I follow a couple of fused glass forums, and it seems that the projects people make and the topics discussed come in waves. Several months ago, it was fused glass puddles. Then came pot melts, followed by “flow” pieces. One of the latest hot topics is the crackle technique, which involves using finely ground glass powder (powdered frit) sifted down on fiber paper, moistened, and then manipulated to produce cracks in the powder.

GAGU artist Wayne Jacobsen recently won the second place award for his platter “Garufa” in the Salt Lake County sponsored National Art Program competition. Congratulating Wayne and other winners are Salt Lake County Mayor Ben McAdams and Valerie Price, Public Art Manager. This is the third year in a row that one of Wayne’s glass art pieces has placed for a cash award. He has done better each year, competing against other professional artists in all medium. See Wayne and “Garufa” in the second photograph.
