Sweet tendrils of glass.  Details of the torso I slumped last night.  Zero devitrification and lovely glass needles.  I  never know what I’m going to find when I open the kiln in the morning.

My theory is about moments, moments of impact. My theory is that these moments of impact, these flashes of high intensity that completely turn our lives upside down actually end up defining who we are. The thing is each one of us is the sum total of every moment that we’ve ever experienced with all the people we’ve ever known. And it’s these moments that become our history. Like our own personal greatest hits of memories that we play and replay in our minds over and over again.

Diaphanum Short Film

I’ve had the profound pleasure of working for two days in the studio with Maser Films on a lovely little passion project about our Cyntar.  The footage is a beautiful montage of glass, steel, plaster and the pains of creation.  We will even be including a montage of dropping a glass torso on slow motion film!  woohoo!  I feel profoundly blessed to have created work with these three amazingly talented men!

Quote IconI have devoted 30 years of research to how creative people live and work, to make more understandable the mysterious process by which they come up with new ideas and new things. If I had to express in one word what makes their personalities different from others, it’s complexity. They show tendencies of thought and action that in most people are segregated. They contain contradictory extremes; instead of being an individual, each of them is a multitude.

On a different note: I found the greatest guy in the world to shear stainless for a better plane mold.  I learned that you can in fact weld stainless together on a mig if you really need to.  I’m stuck on how to kiln wash these.  I bought a spray gun and supposedly need to sandblast the mold, then heat them to 500 degrees before spraying.  I’m contemplating alternatives… but  My kiln fits 6 planes per firing which is a vast improvement from the summer.
