AAE Glass has a new and revolutionary product, Illusion Transfers. Each sheet, handmade specifically for the glass or ceramic artist, is a handmade, screen printed design with several layers of black enamel to ensure full coverage and opacity. The transfers are created with a mesh screen on top of a special backing that allows artists to soak their enamel in water and apply to the substrate. They can be used on any COE of glass. Even dichroic can be patterned with your choice of dichroic coloring with the enamel designs to create infinite combinations of patterned colored dichroic. After firing, images are thick, opaque, and glossy black, just as if you had screen printed the glass yourself. Be sure to check out Tanya Veit’s free video class on using this extraordinary product, available exclusively at AAE Glass.   239‑471‑7724

Gryphon Corporation presents the Gryphon C-40 Band Saw, the diamond band saw that is ideal for difficult projects, since it cuts through heavily rippled glass as easily as through the smoothest window glass. The thin diamond blade removes very little material as it cuts, which means that the saw has to do less work to cut through your glass, stone, tile, or other material and cuts faster and easier than saws with wider blades. The thin cut is also advantageous when cutting precious materials. In addition to the standard configuration for glass, the C-40 is also available in a version optimized for corrosive environments such as salt water and a version that is taller with additional clearance.   818-890-7770

Glass Accessories International has debuted its new Toyo TC-70 Trac Wheel oil glass cutter, a revolutionary new wheel that features micronotches along the edge of the wheel. The notches, which are measured in microns and not visible to the naked eye, provide traction for the wheel as it starts rolling on the glass, reducing chances of the wheel skipping. Manufacturing applications using this new wheel yield a significant increase in wheel life, clean scores, and clean breakouts. Starting the first quarter of 2017, the TC-70 will be available in both Pattern and Straight blade options.

Denver Glass Machinery has redesigned its glass melting furnaces. With a new door design, the blowing artist no longer has to have the door fully open to get a gather. Not only are artists not blasted with heat every time they open the door, but full-time blowing artists who have tested the prototypes for Denver have discovered that the furnaces also have improved element life. With the new design, when the door casting needs to be replaced, you simply lift it out and slide in a new one, and the entire furnace is still rebuildable just like the old design. The average life span of the crucible is seven years. These furnaces are available in 60-, 135-, and 200-pound capacities. The experienced sales staff at Denver will be happy to assist you with your buying decision.
