Re: glass sculpture

I actually work in glass as a side interest, still honing my skills. I mostly work in metal fabrication of sculptures right now but hope to start incorporating glass into the process. I actually just went hot yesterday, just checked the furnace and I'm at 1644 still some ways to go but I'm are getting there. Want to start blowing on Monday, if all goes well. I teach sculpture at Northern State University and am creating the glass program here. It's a really exciting time to be a sculptor here, glass is going steel sculptures being made, big ones 8+ foot for their first projects, wood, bronze.
Students are there all the time, I go in at midnight and they are there grinding away, stay till 3/4 in the morning and this is three weeks from deadline, awesome. Love the work, keep in touch
Matt
