Description

Blown Glass, a multi-layering of color is fused onto the surface before the shape is formed. Measurement shown below is for the shipping carton. The fish measures: 3 in depth 8 inch length 5 inch height Fish begin by making the body; adding color to it and blowing the form. Then while still attached to the pipe the fins are added by gathering molten glass on another rod and attaching the molten glass to the solidified body and shaping the fins with textured tongs, tweezers, and scissors. The fish is then transferred from the pipe and attached at the tail fin onto another rod. The lips and mouth is formed and then if the fish is iridescent the stannous fuming is applied the fish is reheated and put into an annealing oven overnight.

My first exposure to glass forming was at California State University, Fullerton. It was 1983 and I was working on my Bachelors degree in art with a focus on ceramics and decided to take the class I experimented with many different techniques and made attempts at combining them, for instance, combining fusing with blowing and casting with blowing. I spent most of my time blowing glass pieces and then discovered glass casting, which became the dominant method used for my Masters degree exhibition in the fall of 1990. Around that time I began applying to fairs and festivals locally around Southern California. Then I was invited to participate at a Renaissance festival in Minneapolis, Minnesota. There I had a large space to exhibit my work and demonstrate to the public for seven weekends during August and September. This was quite an undertaking to build equipment and create a professional exhibit and demonstrate all while being fifteen hundred miles away from home. The fair would draw somewhere between twenty to forty thousand people on the weekend days it was open and my demonstrations would have well over 200 people watching and I would be engaging them verbally with wireless microphone explaining processes and each step of the glass piece I was making. In 2004, I had the opportunity to return to CSU, Fullerton to teach glass forming for several years as an adjunct teacher. It was fascinating how the students were hungry for information and just about anything I said got their attention. I enjoyed the opportunity and was happy that quite a few of those students continued working with glass after graduating. I retired from the Renaissance fair in 2009 and since have focused on participating in fairs and festivals. I travel to the mid-west still but now it’s for art fairs in Texas, Oklahoma and Missouri, just to name a few and then show locally around southern California where I live and have my studio.
