+Brian Fields this was a test render and comparison to the real glass piece. On this particular render, I have a white plane behind the model to reflect light into the glass... This is a similar trick I would use while photographing  my actual glass work.

+nGon- +Erich Toven Thanks, I agree the top left corner in this render has some problems. There were some issues caused by the solidify mod... I had to rework the geometry a bit to fix it. The earlier post below has the better version of the model.

Glass Blowing Truck
A friend of mine, Kalen Erion, built a mobile glass blowing truck. I stopped by to help test it out on its maiden run... Pretty impressive!

It took Kalen about 4 years to finish it... Well, these type of things are never really finished. Anyway, he has more photos of the truck being built on his Facebook page - https://www.facebook.com/GlassRoutes

Movie themed pop corn birthday cake
My daughter wanted a movie themed birthday cake. I don't bake very often, and have never made fondant icing before... This was my noble effort. Making mini marsh mellows look like popcorn took forever... So this will probably be my first and last pop corn cake.

I'm finally starting to get the material set-up closer to the look of my actual frosted glass sculptures. I used actual glass pieces for reference.

I also made a side-by-side comparison test image of the real glass blue piece and the 3d model version, which I can post if anyone is interested in seeing how it looks next to the real thing.

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.

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- http://www.stumpchuck.com/

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

We are loving 'Parade', an interactive art installation by ceramacist Laurent Craste & digital agency Dpt. for the Chromatic festival in Montreal.

Contemporary art glass sculpture and designer, but mostly a creative problem solver
Introduction
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.
