There is a lot in the works for this Spring at Stafford Art Glass. We just finished up a very busy and successful Fall season designing new work such as suncatchers we call Orbitals, ornaments, some new bowl designs as well as Christmas trees, which were a snuck-up-from-behind hit this year.

We had an incredible response to our class offerings, namely pumpkins and ornaments, which many folks in the area came to participate in.

I have taken off January in order to get some much needed work done around the studio, including building pedestals for the gallery, and designing a new glass reheating mini furnace. I am also getting caught up on a writing project that has been on the drawing board for a number of years. This isn’t glass or art related, but I have managed to make some headway, and that is a good thing!

Plywood for pedestals is clamped for a final precision cut prior to assembly.
Rough assembly of a large pedestal.
Wheels have arrived for our mini-furnace!

I have new redesigns of an old favorite from the Fiamma Series, which will be interesting to see.

I will be making yard and garden ornaments in time for Spring.

I am going to set up a new class online, a class on making your own bowl. You will be able to find that class later in the Spring at Stafford Art Glass. See you there!

Stay glassy, friends! Stop by our Facebook page to see some of our newest news and to get a dose of inspiration!

Let me know if you want a high resolution image of any of these. -Parker
