Ever since I started teaching my fused glass batik technique at Helios Fused Glass Studio many years ago, it has been be a student favorite. The technique is fun, easy, and inspired by a trip to Beijing where I watched artists hand dye fabric with designs "drawn" in wax. The book will show you how to create vibrant, light-colored designs that pop against darker backgrounds - something that's almost impossible to achieve by stenciling powders directly onto sheet glass.

"Fused Glass Batik" is based on a class Paul taught for years at Helios Fused Glass Studio and includes step-by-step instructions for creating textile-like patterns that don't look at all like typical fused glass. FusedGlassBooks.com
We loved our Fusing with Friends creations! Thank you!
Went on a shopping spree Friday! I had the best help selecting an assortment of molds and more glass to add to my stash. I wish I had been able to stay longer-free flowing tips and tricks to help me on my way. I hate shopping but I love shopping at Helios!! Thanks Ladies!! (Of the molds I purchased I am most intrigued with the different ways to use this large murrini mold.) Summer can begin for this teacher!!!
So excited to have time to read more Helios e-books! AaaaHHHHHH
stop! stop it with the enticing newsletter, I say! Does Austin pay you for recruiting people to move there (or at least think about it)???
Anyone still have directions for making xmas ornaments? stack 4 1.5" pcs of glass? TIA.
I saved a file on making xmas ornaments that was on here a few yrs back. Stack 4 1.5" square -- When I opened it to read it, it disappeared. Anyone still have directions? I'd love to try it with my scrap. Thanks in advance.
Please help me, I bought your new book, but could not download it... [paid via paypal]
What should I do in order to get the book?
Thanks,
Havi
Do you have any of Glass Bird Studio's Modelling glass started kit in stock? If yes, how much?
Representing on my bar back in Maine😁. Thanks for the excellent boot camp and wonderful hospitality!

Something fishy is going on with Diane Sonnenberg! Huge congratulations to her on her latest creation. It was a thrill of a life time to craft a few of the colorful sea creatures representing the Flower Banks Coral Reef off the Texas cost. The three tile panels are each 4ft by 6ft, 72square feet over all, and will hang in Houstons Herman Memorial Children's Hospital.

We're still open for private classes or reservations for open tables, retail, and coldworking! We're just keeping it to 5 total in the studio until this Covid surge passes. Look what a new-to-fusing couple made this morning for their friend's upcoming birthday! It's the view from his porch in St. Croix! (Kristine Shafer pre fired the lettering and marked out the outlines and shapes for them to fill-in with color from an image they provided ahead of time.)

Helios will be closed today (Tues 8/3/21) as we adjust our plan for the upcoming months. APH is urging everyone to do what they can to limit the spread of the Delta variant of the Covid virus. There are only 7 ICU beds open today across 11 central Texas counties. Stay safe. Get vaccinated. (Glassy pic from Christy)

This feels appropriate as we enter this next Covid surge.

07/23/2021

Hey y'all, cases are rising. We're masking up again. Come join us for a class or an afternoon project, but bring your mask and keep your distance. We've made it this far!

APH is re-entering Stage 4 of #COVID19 Risk-Based Guidelines as cases + hospitalizations, especially among unvaccinated individuals, have significantly increased over a 7-day moving average since July 4.
Read more: https://bit.ly/3x0djEb

Risk Based Guidelines: bit.ly/3a1uVHm

The additional #COVID19 hospitalizations will take a toll on healthcare staff. Local hospital systems are simultaneously seeing an increase in hospitalizations from other non-COVID diseases and crashes as more people go about their daily, pre-pandemic routines.

Stage 4 recommendations:
😷 Fully vaccinated individuals should wear a mask when participating in indoor + outdoor private gatherings, traveling, dining + shopping
🚫 Partially or unvaccinated individuals should avoid private gatherings, travel, dining + shopping unless essential. Wear a mask when conducting essential activities.

With only 61.9% of residents fully vaccinated, our community continues to be vulnerable to new variants of the disease, especially the highly transmissible Delta variant.

The rapid spread of the Delta variant is cause for concern among public health experts, especially as children and teens prepare to return to in-person classes. It is important for parents to vaccinate their children who are 12 years of age and older. APH further recommends that those under the age of 12 wear a mask as the school year begins until a vaccine for their age range is approved.

The history of artists in Texas is as old at the history of Texas itself! I've been helping collect and document some artists from the past century specific to the Texas Hill Country. I just found out about this event specific to Aransas County artists. If you're looking for something art related to do this weekend in Austin, check it out!
