I was directed today to You Tube by Bullseye glass via Facebook today. Bullseye had posted a link to a video, put together by Corning Museum of Glass, showing Rudi Gritch doing some cool fusing. You can see the glass that he has draped over some rods slump down to meet the other glass he set up…oh just go watch the video. Very cool. Or should I say hot stuff!
And while you’re on You Tube checking out the video you may be tempted to check out some others in the Corning Masters Series. I watched a video by Kristina Logan, a certified glass goddess and queen of dots, as well as the first president of the Society of Glass Bead Makers (now it’s the International Society of Glass Bead Makers). And you can keep viewing videos about fusing or bead making or slumping or more bead making…what did we do before the internets?
