I have never in my years as an artist double-booked myself at shows.
Saturday, April 2, presented me with 2 opportunities to sell my work. Since both are fundraisers, I wanted to support both schools.
My wonderful daughter & her daughter stepped in to lend a hand! They will be “woman-ing” my table at one show while I work the other!
Cleveland Hill High School, 105 Maple Road, Cheektowaga, NY 9-1
Sweet Home High School, 1901 Sweet Home Road, Amherst, NY 9-3
The weather prediction is sunny and mid 40’s- a good day to support local high school fundraisers! Thank You!

Busy getting ready for these two fundraisers designing and fusing glass for jewelry and my stainless steel bottle stoppers.
I begin by cutting and adding layers of fusable glass, heating them in my kiln to 1500 degrees. Once the glass has cooled, I grind it to shape and return it to the kiln to fire polish the rough edges. Then the fun begins as I attach the new glass to their settings (this is where I find out how accurate I have ground the glass!)
Experimenting with black and white glass
Ready to grind (some pieces require more grinding than others!)
Time to fire polish those grinding marks away!
Fire polishing to 1350 degrees
YAY- the glass pieces fit! (I made 25 new glass stoppers today!)
Black and white and Over the Buffalo Moon!
Special thanks to all the wonderful volunteers, coordinators, student contributors, and fellow artists!
