Glass Classes for my Trixie Kitty

"Glass for Trixie Kitty" Party - In this short workshop session, I invite you and a few friends over to play with glass. My poor kitty, Trixie has bad genetics, and nearly all of her teeth need to come out.
If the teeth don't come out, her jawbone may get infected. Then, there's risk that her jaw could break. Wish there was an easier fix. We even brushed her teeth for the last year. Didn't help. She's plaque free, but her gums are receding :(
It's expensive... Come have some fun and help me pay for my kitty's comfort.

My studio can accommodate 2-8 people comfortably. My kiln shelf is 20" x 20". $100 to fill it all up. $25 per quarter (10" x 10"). I provide all the fusible glass scrap you could need. 2-3 hour session depending on how long you decide to play! Contact me to find a time for your group!
Head on over to my website to select a date: My Classes Page.

Sculptural Stained Glass Mirror Project Complete

Remember this post from February? Yeah, neither did I, apparently! I began documenting the process of creating this fabulous mirror for the "Stars Are Out" gala supporting the Memories in the Making art program for the The Independence House (a care facility in Lincoln, Nebraska) and the Nebraska Alzheimer Association. Then, I got really busy with about a hundred other things all at once!

Well, I'm happy to say that the mirror turned out fabulously...

I was able to get a photograph of the mirror before letting it go to get auctioned off. The gala was a success and a lot of fun, to boot! My husband tagged along and my friend, Julie took a great photo of the both of us:)
