Looking for a fused glass class, but can't seem to make it to the sessions offered at Seraphim Studios?  Want just a little help, but not hands on assistance from a staff member? Well, there may be an option that will fit you perfectly:   Bullseye, long-time manufacturer of COE 90 glass for fusing and torch work, now offers a series of online classes covering a wide range of fusing and warm glass issues.

Called "Bullseye"s Kiln-Glass Education Online, this annual subscription program aims to inspire kiln-glass makers everywhere, by helping them to build foundational skills, acquire new techniques, and discover new forms and projects. Lessons are short (only 10-15 minutes each), and each is designed by Bullseye instructors. Lessons are appropriate for everyone from beginners to advanced kilnformers.

Here is the basic information about the program: 

  • A 12-month subscription is $39.
  • Bullseye promises to add 12 new videos every year.
  • Your subscription gives you access to Bullseye complete library of video lessons – over 50 so far with more to come!
  • Lessons can be viewed as often as you like, at any time, from any location with Internet access. (Note: Lessons are not downloadable.)
  • Each lesson includes downloadable firing schedules, product lists, and helpful links. There's also a discussion area for connecting with other subscribers.

So, if you think you might be interested, check it out by following this link:     bullseye

But don't forget to come see us, and show us what you have learned! And, if there is a topic you don't see, let us know ~ if we can't help you with it, perhaps we can get the folks at Bullseye to feature it in a future lesson!

Spectrum Glass Company has been adding glasses to its production inventory at a rapid rate over the past several years. Unfortunately, this year, the company has also DISCONTINUED quite a few colors, including the following:
  • 281-71SF ~ System 96, Stone Opal
  • 403.96SF ~ System 96, Cobalt on Clear wispy
  • 693.74SF ~ System 96, Pink & aqua crystal
  • OA/244.54SF ~ System 96, Orchid Opal Art
  • BR 604.1 ~ Baroque, pale purple & clear on white
  • 6029.83CC ~ Spring Corsica/pearl Opal
  • AA/100QR ~ Clear, quarter reeded, architectural sheet size
  • AA/100RW ~ Clear, rainwater, architectural sheet size
  • I/100V ~ Clear, Vechio, iridized 
  • I/100QR ~ Clear, quarter reeded, iridized
  • 389.1s ~ Quartz pink, wispy
  • 190.1W ~ Quartz pink waterglass
  • 395.1 ~ Pink & white streaky

We  do have some of these colors on hand in limited supply. However, when they are gone, they will be gone ~ so plan your projects accordingly.

Also from Spectrum/Skutt, the HotStart PRO kiln has undergone a price increase. This is a good size kiln for most projects ~ we use ours in the studio often ~ and will run on household current. The price has been kept constant by the manufacturer (Skutt) for several years, but they have announced a new price of $857 (delivered by UPS).  The kiln comes with its basic kiln furniture (shelf & stand), and a selection of free System 96 glass.
