Harvest Moon – Re-purposing a Fused Glass Texture Tile by Dana Worley

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

Dana Worley’s Koi Platter Tutorial

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

Dana Worley – Glass Combing

Fused Glass Design Elements – Glass Combing by GAGU member Dana Worley

Fused glass bowl with combed design

Glass combing, or raking, is a fused glass technique where the glass is heated to a temperature high enough to allow the glass to be manipulated in the kiln. The glass is typically brought to between 1600 and 1700 degrees Fahrenheit and then a stainless steel tool (or rake) is used to swirl the glass.

Lester Lee Workshop Was a Big Success

In a workshop held on May 16, 2015, the well-known artist, Lester Lee taught guild members about Art Composition and Color Theory. Lester is a skilled teacher who makes complex topics simple and easy to understand. Students were able to practice many techniques taught during the course. Several students also received a professional critique on their own glass creations.
