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!)

Saturday October 1  11 – 6  Falkner Park, Youngstown, NY

A relatively new event – the third annual Youngstown Arts and Music Festival – takes over Falkner Park from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 1. Sponsored by a number of local businesses, with support coming both from the Youngstown Business and Professional Association and the Village of Youngstown, this family-friendly affair will offer a number of activities – from musical performances to arts and crafts, wine and beer offerings, foods, children’s activities, even a farmer’s market.

And all at no cost to attend. –Niagara Frontier Publications
