I admit to curiosity about the process you’re using - I’ve done a little bit of art glass work (fusing and some very supervised glassblowing and lampworking) myself and then have a lot of experience with some very technical glasses, but that’s a very different category of things.

I really like the Mauna Kea piece; I am looking forward to getting to see the Big Island and the volcanoes (professional interest! to the extent that I have those these days) but I haven’t yet.

Very nice mezuzah cover.

It’s just straightforward fusing and slumping. A typical piece takes multiple firing cycles, with some elements created separately and then fused together in an iterative process.

For example, the Mauna Kea piece: the moon and the turtle are beads made individually, as is the frit lace that makes up the lava flow. the various flat elements - sea, land, sky, and mountain - were fused together in stages along with some shading provided by frit powder and glassline paint, and then the lace and beads were added in a final firing cycle.

It’s very cool to see.

Glass is such an amazingly fun substance.

Indigenous Americans Ruled Democratically Long Before the U.S. DidDemocracy: it was older and more widespread than we thought. At the Oconee site, called Cold Springs, artifacts were excavated before the valley became an aquatic playground. Now, new older-than-expected radiocarbon dates for those museum-held finds push back the origin ...
