Glass Art E-Newsletter May/June 2012




May/June 2012         

Greetings!,Shawn Photo  


This issue of Glass Art magazine contains a smorgasbord of hot, warm, and cold glass created by artists who have perfected their work over decades and also those who are just finding their footing in glass.


Our hot glass profile features Brook White, glassblower and owner of Flame Run Glass Studio and Gallery in Louisville, Kentucky. White discusses his move back to Louisville Glassworks to take over their hot shop, which will be operated under the auspices of Flame Run at Glassworks.


Warm glass artists include translator of the subconscious, Michael Janis, who creates intricate glass powder drawings that depict the poetry, symbolism, and magic of the everyday. Retailer Lisa Becker, owner of Art Glass Array in St. Charles, Missouri, offers beginning and advanced students a well-rounded education in fused glass, and Ed Hoy recalls how his business has grown since he opened his first store in 1972.


Cold glass is represented by sandblasting artist Kathy Bradford. Though fully adept and successful in stained glass and fusing, Bradford is now focusing all her creative energies on sandblasting and has entered the public art arena, a move that is helping this glass artist ride out economic hard times.


Hoping you"ll continue learning from industry leaders in each issue of Glass Art,


Shawn Waggoner

Andrew Jackson Pollack
by Collen Bryan
Andrew Pollack's parents were involved in the arts and gave him an orientation to art and to creating. His mother was an art teacher and owned a pottery business. His father was a lover of music, art, and food. Andy felt the imperative to make his own place as an artist using self-chosen media and forms. This article was originally published on page 6 of the Summer 2010 issue of Profitable Glass Quarterly.


Educational Profile          
by Kristen Rice      


I had always  wanted to work on large-scale projects with children, and when I saw how much they loved to create, I began to think about how we could use their efforts to make our school and our community better. There was a community garden across from the school that was somewhat neglected, and the people in charge granted us permission to install mosaic columns that would be created by the school's art students.
