Hi glass peeps,
The illustrations are finished!!
Over many years and primarily in life drawing classes, charcoal on toned paper became my favorite medium to draw with. The fifteen full page charcoal illustrations scattered throughout the text are dedicated to only a few of the many people who have inspired my glass life in some way. The following are my favorite moments of a few. Each is accompanied by a hand written calligraphy caption.
Have a good one!
I recently contacted many of the major glass suppliers for permission of their inclusion in the book.
More full page illustrations are underway as well as continued tweaking of information. I am finalizing the intro, acknowledgments, and index.
I am excited to present a new standard for glassblowing technique books! Everything is still on track for a book release in May.
Don't forget to flash your glass,
I grew up in Calumet City, IL. My professional glassblowing career led me to Phoenix, AZ and the coast of Carlsbad, CA. where I was given the opportunity to teach glassblowing classes. Notes and chalk drawings of different techniques for the students resulted in my current book project.
