So, I’ve been working on drawings for a possible stained glass job at Great Dane 3, where Don works. Don’t know if it’s going to happen yet, but I hope it does. It’s over 40 square feet of glass honoring four main beer ingredients: barley, hops, water and yeast. Yup, yeast. It’s not much to look at but it’s just as important as the other ingredients so, over ten square feet for yeast. As a whole, this project is an interesting, interesting design problem–more interesting than you realize, probably, especially if you’ve never done stained glass. I did stained glass for what seems like my whole life before I picked up lampworking. In fact, fourteen years ago, before I had a computer or email or anything I did some huge brewing-themed windows for the downtown Great Dane. Know what I used for source pictures for the designs? Books! Archaic! You don’t know the half of it! I remember when all this was just a field! At least I could Google Image pictures of yeast for these, not that that helped much. If I get the job, I’ll pop back on Watch Me Create and write some stuff about it. It will be interesting process.
Meanwhile, in other news, I guess I’m going to do the Art Glass and Bead Show here in Madison on March 28 and 29. I have exactly almost zero inventory at this point but I’m optimistic about getting some things made by then. My mate JC Herrell is coming up from Tucson for the show so that will be a gas. I suspect that my cash and check only policy is going to go over like a lead balloon but, what can I do? I threw off the yoke of the credit card service providers about a year ago and since I’ve been enjoying having one less thing to worry about. So, Bead Show, end of March, cash or check only. Stop on by!
