I'm in the process of moving from Phoenix, AZ back to my home town Cal City, IL. I will stop in Colorado Spring along the way to visit my niece! It'll be wonderful to see my family this Christmas. Can't wait!!
The plan is to refine the text and images for the book one last time, send it out for a couple more peer reviews, self-publish, order a large print run, and drive around the country to studios and universities on a book tour the middle to end of 2017. Give a shout and I'll put you on my list of destinations. I plan to travel coast to coast as well as a stop at the GAS Conference.
My most recent chapter, which I have overlooked for a considerable amount of time, is heating in the glory hole. I'm explaining spot heating (hiding the piece next to the door) and faded heat. Here's a few images that'll be contained in the chapter.
I always love feedback! Thank you to the few of you who sent messages.
Enjoy your weekend!
I was raised 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.
