Glass Class

Months later … okay almost a year … nevertheless … along with my biggest fan and brain-trust RJ … we finally finished my “Glass on Glass” instructional video class. In this class, I’ll show you how to create a Glass on Glass vintage window of your very own!

Available on Vimeo @ https://vimeo.com/ondemand/glassonglass1

Creating the instructional video was much easier and more fun than writing my book … I think we’ll do another!

What book you ask? … it was a few years back (OMG 11 years ) when I was contacted by a publisher to write a book about my found object and pique-assiette mosaic tile artwork. It took almost a year to write and photograph, was a great experience and a ton of work … the next time I write a book – if there is one – I’m gonna make sure that I get to name the book and choose the cover image. I’m mostly over it. Sort of.

Anyway … the book is forever in the Library of Congress and is sold on Amazon, Goodreads and Barnes & Noble, to name a few.  It’s been reviewed by some happy people, who encouraged me to keep gluing, while others posted some really mean reviews that at first made me very sad, then mad and then finally really bad for the people who wrote them.

Overall, I gave the book a B+ … which was always acceptable in my world, especially in math.  The book is good, not great but I finished it and survived everything that came along with it like … the realization that I’m good enough, I’m smart enough and gosh darn it a few people liked it.

All I know is … I did the very best I could and will continue to pat myself on the back for a job well-done on both fronts.

Going to give my new DIY Glass on Glass video an A+ … mostly for not giving up on it and not getting mad when RJ pushed the publish button.

Hope you’ll check it out.

Glass on Glass Reboot

The new studio is still under construction so we moved a little desk into the corner of the porch/laundry room/back entrance for now.  Thanks, Robbie.

Studio Design Working in a small space is challenging and limits the amount of available materials but it also forces tidiness and focus which are really good things.

Glass on Glass Vintage Window Art The truth is … my dream progress is still happening behind the scenes and I’m quite proud of myself for making the time to create a new glass on glass vintage window project and filming the whole thing.

My little sis watched the video, she liked it, laughed a little and was even inspired to start creating her own peace so … I’m going to film the ending this weekend and hand it off to RJM to finish the edit and publish. I’ll keep you posted.

Have a great weekend!
