"caberNOLA" (carbon graal)

"caberNOLA" (carbon graal)

as a follower of trends, i'm now thinking twice about using my hands solo. in this land of 0's and 1's, twosies are forging new paths where the road plys.

such darling duos, i say! the colourful coupling of so many side-by-side silicists has started a swordfight of sweet fire and ice in my soul, or is it loins? only the marvelous marriage at the junction of twindom and tandemnation can quell the dazzling duets of Two plus one minus one. wouldn't you corroborate?

in short, i double down for bi-design's rich bounty.

Glass Art Society demonstration 2005

Glass Art Society demonstration 2005

Ya'll, I'm putting up some pictures of the demonstration I did in Australia this summer at the GAS conference. It's a pretty comprehensive look at the assembly of one of my large bottles. I'm going to be teaching at several schools this summer and hope to give a demo similar to what is shown towards the end of each class. I'm hoping to draw some students through glassartists since it's the largest grouping of torchers out there. Every time I get on the site I see new folks with great potential in flameworking, and hope to spread the knowledge that was given to me through instruction in glass. I hope everyone takes a class this summer. The schedules are filled with talent from school to school. Take anybodys class before mine, but if not check out my website www.blownglass.ws. On the teaching page are all the dates for the schools that I'll be at along with links to thier sites. Check out all the schools and all the folks teaching everywhere. Friends to be made, fun to be had, don't miss out.

every year they hold an auction with the work of current and past instructors from thier summer sessions to drum up funds from patrons for upkeep of the facilities and to help provide scholarships. good cause and fun to watch the woman who comes every year to buy the Stankard piece at any cost.

Pittsburgh Glass Centers' Andre Gutgesell class

Pittsburgh Glass Centers' Andre Gutgesell class

a couple weeks ago i had the great fortune of taking a class with a flameworker called Andre Gutgesell. he was flown over by the Pittsburgh Glass Center from Lauscha, Germany. this was his first time teaching, and he was incredibly patient with us. he was taught primarily by Kurt Wallstab, also of Lauschan descent, and trained in colour and design at the Bauhuas in Germany. we used only hand pulled tubing from lauscha which has a coefficient similar to furnace glass, around 97 or so.

tastes like applebees

some neglected goblets from an installation in downtown Pittsburgh. not exactly the kind of work i'll be teaching at Corning this month, but relivant to the post-consumerism tugging at my conscience of late. there are still three or four spots open in the Corning class and it may not be able to take place without a few more people signing up. it's a great opportunity to study at Corning and i hope we don't miss out. the class runs for two weeks from June 25th until July 8th. any questions, let me know.

  • Pakoh
    indeed...
    Pakoh: it is the truth that these bottle sets are some of the tightest work on this site. Well designed and executed.
    the one statement i take notice of is "Craftsmanship and technique are values that I feel make work pertinent". In my mind, good concepts will only elevate work above and beyond when they are merged with craftsmanship and technique. Technique is important, but what does it say about the human condition? I feel it is merely a means to an end... using the right technique to get a point across.

    and , yes... i do want to trade T-shirts....

    rose, your'e hired
    Matthew Eskuche: yeah, i'm pretty bummed too. Pittsburgh is only going to be able to run one of it's 6 flamework classes this summer for this same reason. UrbanGlass keeps having to cancel all thier flame classes too. C'mon people is right, if all the schools keep having to cancel flamework they'll soon be cutting it from thier curriculum and we'll be left with one and two day workshops in some random warehouse space. the kind of peripheral stimuli at a place like Corning or Penland or Pittsburgh, etc. can't be measured. spend a week or two at one of these world renowned schools and you'll be surrounded by people and ideas from all over the world that will stretch the boundries of learning and experience. i'll stop preaching now, but i think we as flameworkers should show ourselves to the major institutions as a worthwhile facet in the glass arts for them to pursue.

    what about my class in Istanbul?
    Matthew Eskuche: i'm teaching a three day class at Tecnolux in Brooklyn, NY the same weekend as SOFA, June 1st through the 4th. also, i'm giving a two or three day workshop in a private studio in the days following the Corning class. i'll look into the possibility of adding a student to that workshop. email me so i can keep you up to date on it.

    don't poo-poo the hot shop thing too badly. the opporotunities to work out of the furnace might be few and far between for you, but the techniques are valuable and transfer directly to the flameshop.
    5/13/2006 4:58 PM
  • Tisbury Pringle-Ennis
    What's Up Matt?
    Tisbury Pringle-Ennis: Sorry to hear about the cancellations. I highly recommend taking classes to anyone interested! I benifitted (sp.?) sooooo much from the class I took at Eugene glass school this April. I say if you want to do something,,make it happen. I am working on my blown forms. Also, I posted a web page on this site..check it out..TIZ

    kind words
    Matthew Eskuche: the Penland class will be great fun, no doubt. glad to see you've got the furnace experience Randy, that's a head start since i'll be covering working with jacks and diamond shears at the torch.

    i'll make a goblet if you're interested and certainly do some bit-work as you see on the stems of the goblets here. the studio is open 24 hours a day so we'll do some experimenting as well. bring beer.

    good to see you on here tiz, i look forward to seeing the vessels. see you at GAS?
