The Jimi Piece

The Jimi Piece

I have been working on this piece for a long time now. This is the first. Since the music is written for saxophone quartet and I have three other parts and other pages of material to work with.

I still have this piece and I am now planning on the rest of the work to get done on it's companions over the winter.

Ne Mee Poo

Ne Mee Poo

Chief Joseph is a highly inspirational figure to me. The title means the real people in Nez Perce. The stopper was made by Milissa Montini and of course the feather is not glass. We had been waiting for a piece like this to colaborate on. This piece went to a collector in Toledo.

Dead Mans Hand

Dead Mans Hand

Wild Bill Hickock is fascinating to me. So is poker. I've had this one in mind for quite some time. I was reading this book about Bill and I decided it was time to start putting it together. A very nice lady from Australia now is the prowd owner.

This guy just cracks me up. A great patron of glass and glass design in his day. There are some neat quotes in his museum about glass in his early work as an illustrator. He even designed some glass through Stuben.

I still have this one... considering a companion piece or two for it.

Spank Set #2

Spank Set #2

Another version of the Spank set. God I miss playing with all those guys. If Dustin Lanker would ever contact me I have a few pieces I would like to send his way and get the Beaver Poster he made for us too.

Anyway... Lotsa fun with this image. Glad it currated into a good home! Thanks MAD museum and Jennifer Scanlan!

The Stuff I made at AGI 2006

The Stuff I made at AGI 2006

Thought I would shoot these just for kicks. I didn't quite have the teapot done at AGI, just the main bottle portion.

Some new experiments for 2006

Some new experiments for 2006

This is a new segment of my gallery devoted to obvious Venetian inspired study pieces. In music, jazz specificaly, it is imperative that one transcribe the masters in order to learn the language. Venetian goblets seem to serve the same purpose for todays flameworker.

Thanks to Maestro Mickelsen I think I can now do what I have always wanted. This is a big thing for me to take advantage of.

These obviously did not turn out as good as hoped for.

    Hey Rex
    Eric Goldschmidt: Great to hear from you. Give a call when you get a chance. Take a look at my "Guggenschmidt" cup. I was also deeply influenced by the "Guggenheim".

    Hey Rex!!
    Ben Burton: I wasn't poking at your comment over on Karuna's piece!! she's here in Hawaii, and they tend to say 'ah' after lots off stuff!!! (it's almost like saying 'It's nice, yeah?') I don't know if that makes sense or not.... anyways I hope i didn't offend you!!

    Aloha!

    well put
    The Contemporary Studio Of Glass Art: "I feel passionate about whether literally displayed or not, the pieces tend to lean in the direction of a larger construct beyond the technichal confines of the material."

    Me 2, I don't know if I'll be out g.a.s. but it was nice to see you on here,ahhhh the memoriesof the fartglass board. I haven't been on the web much, or should I say fucking off. lol because I'm trying to do 5 million things (at) the same time, like running a glass school that I started out here. All though I haven't worked on the torch for like a year, I miss it a bit all though it doesn't seem to be as satisfying to me because it takes so long to build a large mass and such. After the Hotshop is running more smooth we plan to get the torch shop rockin. Then you should come on out and visit, if you want?

    I like the 2006 Trimm addition of work, and when we get the lampshop rolled out, I would like you to teach a gobblet making class here in the future, its the least I could do for all the entertaining conversations we've had.

    The start of the new site can be found (at) glassschool.org, it is also contemporaryglass.org among other names , but they won't be active for a week or so.

    Cheers
