Hanging glass sculpture

From an interesting angle, +Katie Katz did a great job capturing this photo of our hanging glass sculpture in a tea color... Work in progress.

Magic Monday
A fun and simple magic trick! 

After watching this video, I made the stick and practiced the moves for awhile... I was surprised how well it worked fooling my family and friends!

I'm not sure why I'm so fascinated by 'dioramas' in museums
I photographed this one showing old time factory glassblowers at the Corning Museum of Glass.

I have a weird photo collection of dioramas I took over the years... Those darn Dioramas would be much easier for me to photograph if they weren't always behind glass...

Glass "murrine" by artist Loren Stump. $12,000 per slice.

This is probably the most impressive example of glass 'murrini' I have ever seen. Inspired by a Leonardo da Vinci painting, Loren Stump re-created the painting in the form of a glass murrine.

Traditionally, murrine is made by layering colored glass and pulling it into long rods. When the glass rods are cut, the cross-section reveals the image.

Simple patterns are usually the most common use of this technique in glass making... But this work by Loren Stump is on a whole other level in skill and technique. About ten slices of this glass murrine exist. Via-

I have always been a big fan of 'interactive art installations' 

h/t - +Alicia Rose for sharing this post.
We are loving 'Parade', an interactive art installation by ceramacist Laurent Craste & digital agency Dpt. for the Chromatic festival in Montreal.

19th-century Wooden Lampworking Table
This Blaschka-Era glass lampworking table uses foot-operated bellows to push air across an open alcohol flame.

Modern glass lampworking or 'flameworking'  torches use compressed oxygen and gas cylinders... Far easier to work with.

Read more about how the Corning Museum of Glass unearthed this early lampworking device -

Some things aren't planned... At first
We have daffodil flowers that bloom for only about a week every year. When my daughter was about four months old, we took photos of her with the daffodils.

The following year when the daffodils bloomed, we were reminded of the first time seeing our daughter holding the flower... And decided to capture that moment again.

Nine years later, we managed to capture her during the brief daffodil bloom... Some years she was a willing participant, some years not so much.

Originally unplanned, this moment in time has become important... Even to our daughter.

Contemporary art glass sculpture and designer, but mostly a creative problem solver
About me

I am a professional artist, glass blower, and sculptor. I have been creating hand blown glass and glass sculpture almost for 20 years. As the owner of a glass studio and business, I wear many hats and consider myself more of a "creative problem solver".
My creative energy doesn't stop at the physical objects I make. My interest in technology, electronics, physical computing, 3D modeling squeeze their way into my world.

I have a very eclectic mix of interests including art, music, science, business topics, and of course humor is always welcome in my stream.

I enjoy G+ because it is the best place to meet and engage with extraordinary people all over the world.

With my wide range of interests, I have many kinds of circles. It is helpful to me to know a person's interest so I know which "circle" to include them in. If your "about" page is blank with little information, I have no idea which of my circles to include you in.

"Engagement" on G+ is key for me... If you engage with me , I will engage with you. I don't expect someone to always agree with me and I am not easily offended... So don't be shy, I won't bite :)

Side note - Does anyone else ever have the lyrics in their head from the Pina Colada Song by Rupert Homes when filling out the 'about' section??

Very good authentic fresh Italian food! The service was great! The prices are great for the quality of the food. This place is quickly becoming one of our favorites. We went for my wife's birthday and they made the night even more enjoyable for our family. It is a BYOB, which is fine because I can bring my own favorite wine. After eating here a few times, I have no problem recommending Pizzeria Dimeo's.
