C3 STUDIOS UPDATE
We recieved a few calls from people telling us that they had sent us a message using our "contact us" feature, but did not get a reply. We had the web designer look at the site and, sure enough, the system was clogged up with messages that had not been forwarded on to us. We're sorry for the inconvenience-- we weren't ignoring you, you're too important to us. It's fixed now.

It seems that there was not enough interest in the "WHAT IF CLUB" to continue offering it once a month so we are canceling the last Thursday evenings of the coming months for the meetings. Too bad as it was a great way to learn new techniques and explore "outside of the box" experiments using the rules of "glass kilnforming".
BUBBLE ART GLASS (Recap)
We had a great time and even had a surprise for the students. We incorporated inclusions into the art pieces.
For photos of bubbles with and without inclusions, contact us and request a full copy of this newsletter.
CRACKLE, CRACKLE, CRACKLE (Recap)
Each student produced six 6"x6" technique tiles using multiple colors of powders, clear bases, iridized bases, and tinted bases.
Whew, it was fast and furious and produced amazing results, some even look like Dichroic glass! We can not show pictures here, but you can see the work in the e-mail version of this newsletter.

This class is just a starting point for you to go back to your studio and develop your own style.

This workshop is a "How To Create" a reverse relief cast glass object with the optical clarity of a furnace casting.
