Taking The Mystery Out of Murrine

Today in our Advanced Glass Fusing Class we took glass fusing to a new level by Taking The Mystery Out of Murrine. Our guest instructor, Suzanne Comella, taught how to make Murrine using only a Hot Head torch using System 96 glass and COE 90 glass.  Yep, a Hot Head Torch.  Suzanne reviewed making stringer and a few other things and finished off the class by taking the big mystery out of making Murrine. Thanks Suzanne for your time and wonderful talent!

Just a Reminder Regarding Studio Hours

Just a reminder to all our students, clients and customers – the Studio Hours have changed: We are now By Appointment Only on Fridays.  This allows us to visit job sites and clients more easily.  But we are happy to serve our retail customers as well so if you can only come in on a Friday please don’t hesitate to call and make an appointment to shop.  In general we will be trying to schedule that for AM hours, but we can work around your schedule if necessary.

Also, wanted to give a heads up that we will closed from Friday, May 15 – Monday, May 18th so that we may attend our youngest sons’ graduations – Justin’s on Saturday, May 16th at U of I, and the Ryan’s on May 17th at Monmouth College in Monmouth, IL.  Congratulations to both of you, we’re so proud of you guys!!
