AAE Glass would like to extend a free marketing invitation to any small glass art business who may read this blog.  We want to help you promote yourself this weekend.  We urge you to click the comment link below and share your business, not only with other glass artists, but people who love glass art. We get comments and emails from people on a daily basis saying they "love the glass art and the featured glass artists on this blog."  We have been able connect many buyers with artists and artists with buyers.  This blog not only attracts glass artists looking for quality products and step by step tutorials, but it now attracts people who love to wear glass art and more importantly this time of year, buy glass art. We want to offer you a FREE way to market yourself to thousands of potential customers. 

You can say whatever you like about yourself.  Leave a link to your website, promote any art shows you are in this season and post pictures of your glass art on any or all of our social media outlets.  Facebook, Twitter, Google plus or even email us a complete article about yourself at info@aaeglass.com and we will feature you on this blog. The more creative you get, the more I like it!

AAE Glass will not be sending out any "Get your Crazy Holiday Deal Here" emails this weekend to promote ourselves...Lets be honest, are you really going to open every email you get this weekend?  Instead, we will be sending out a newsletter that will promote everyone who takes the time to use any of our FREE social media outlets to promote themselves.We will be sharing your links, pictures, and bio's with our very extensive email list.  Don't forget, Tanya sold fused glass jewelry on the retail level for years before starting AAE Glass.  She has contacts with as many glass buyers as she does glass artists...This newsletter is going to EVERYONE!

What's the catch?  We are offering this service to get more readers to this blog and strengthen the glass art community as a whole, not to mention get more sales along the way.  We want to go about our business in a different way.  We like to think outside of the box at AAE Glass.  Our mission is, always has been and always will be, help those who help you.  AAE Glass believes in helping the glass art business as a whole, one artist at a time.  When you take a workshop with Tanya Veit, you get unlimited support forever.  If you need a push getting exposure, if you are trying to turn your hobby into a full time business or if you are thinking of trying glass art for the first time, we are here to help.

  19. I’m Jackie Bowyer, the artist/owner of Hummingbird Art Glass Studio. In 1997 I got hooked on combining the beautiful colors and textures of glass to create panels, lamps, cabinet door inserts and smaller gift items. I began doing commission work for friends and co-workers, creating some one of a kind artwork for my clients. In May of 2011 I discovered Tanya Veit of AAE Glass and took her Extreme Fusing class in Chicago. Tanya is nothing short of amazing and her class inspired me to go to the next level. Recently I opened an Etsy shop featuring fused glass jewelry with settings from AAE Glass and unique fused glass horses.

  22. My name is Martha Weekly and I create fused glass jewelry and dabble in stained glass in the Kansas City, KS area.

    My husband and I sold our business in 2000 and I immediately took a stained glass class at our local (stained glass) retailer. I loved it! One day I casually mentioned to my husband that I was curious about the process of fusing glass. The next thing I knew, I had a large Skutt kiln as a gift from My husband. I didn’t know whether to thank him or hit him! I bought books, took classes and found whatever I could on the internet. We went to the Glass Crafters Expo in Las Vegas where I took more classes. My enthusiasm was building.

    Since I had such a large kiln, I started making home décor items such as bowls, platters, plates and slumped items. I had a few successes and many dismal failures. My notebook from those days looks like 3 copies of War and Peace in a 3-ring binder. I wrote down everything from firing schedules to thickness of glass. I took pictures from every angle. I still refer to that book today, although I almost need help lifting it (cleaning out and reorganizing my notebook is on my to-do list).

    I don’t remember exactly what peaked my interest in trying my hand at fused glass jewelry other than it was smaller, required less glass and took up less space as a finished product. Back to the books. Different books. Books and internet articles about dichroic glass. Learning about findings (what an odd word!). Talking to the jewelry artist at our local glass shop and trying to get her to divulge her deepest, darkest trade secrets. More classes. More money. More glass.

    Roughly six years later I was doing “ok” with making jewelry. I had managed to create some lovely pendants, earrings and bracelets. Then I came across AAEGlass and UREKA! Their site brought an entirely new dimension and excitement to the jewelry that I was making. Those of you that use the decals know what I’m talking about. But even that started to get a tad bit mundane until I took Tanya’s Extreme Fusing class in Omaha in August of this year. Now I feel like the sky is the limit, even though I know on a scale of 1 to 10 (Tanya being a 10), I might be a 5. The great thing about Tanya and Mark is they are there to help people like me, truly help. So, my only limit in-so-far as how much I learn is directly related to how much time and energy I am will to devote to this wonderful craft.

    I still haven’t mastered getting the right size of picture on Etsy (my to-do list is quite long), what I do have posted can be seen at: http://www.etsy.com/shop/marthasclassyglass

    Thank you Tanya and Mark for being such exceptional people. It has truly been a pleasure and a privilege.

  24. Hi and Happy Holidays to everyone,

    My name is Tonya Nelson and I live in Pueblo, Colorado. I have been making jewelry for about three years and fusing glass for two. I am largely self taught which really just means I have made a lot of really ugly lumps of glass and made lots of mistakes. I missed Tanya's extreme fusing class when she was in Denver much to my regret. Hopefully I will catch her class in the future.

    I am a nurse working in an emergency room so I was looking for a way to tie my passion to my professional life. I began making retractable badge reels decorated with dichroic fused glass pieces and I was thrilled when my co-workers loved them. I was even more excited when the men started wearing them.

    I have to make a comment related to another's blog. If I would have realized the amount of photography skills posting on-line required, I would have taken a photography class! What a challenge taking pictures of dichroic glass has turned out to be! If anyone wants to send me any advice I would love to hear it. Send me a message on my artfire account.

    You can find me at www.fivepackdesigns.artfire.com

    Tanya and Mark I want to thank you for offering such great products and for giving us all the opportunity to post on this site.


  25. Thanks so much... Here is my shop link and new Facebook Fan Page for BaubleBinBeads... Hope everyone has a fabulous Thanksgiving.



  26. Hello and Happy Holidays!

    My name is Laurie Ruck and I am the proud owner of Cat's Paw Glass, LLC. I am a glass artist that lives in Madison, WI. Each of my pieces has been made in my home with love, soul, and with cats underneath my feet.

    AAE Glass has made such a tremendous positive impact on my art and my sales!! Tanya is a wonderful teacher and allowed me to start dreaming about all the potentials that glass offers. The glass settings and high quality decals have been phenomenal sellers for me as well. Even in a tough economy--with her settings and ideas, each of my art fair shows have been successful.

    Thank you to Tanya and Mark for all of the wonderful support to all of us out there that are trying to share our art with others.

  28. I'm a self representing artist from Spain, S212
    My name is Vicente Gonzalez Sarasua, I read from your project, I think its very interesting and i would like to take part in it.

    I'm silversmith and lampwork artist, my commercial name is Plata y Color

    By applying the traditional lampwork technique to modern design.

  29. My name is Kat Davis. My partner, Phil Custer & I own The Kat's Meow Studio...specializing in hand-painted Murals, Faux Finishing, & Decorative Painting. We have recently had the honor of contributing some of our artwork to the walls of the new AAE Glass Studio in Cape Coral, FL. Although we are not glass artists, we can really appreciate the work & detail that goes into creating pieces of glass art. From what we have seen so far, it appears that a lot of the prepwork & procedures needed to create a beautifully finished piece of glass art...are quite similiar to the steps we take to create a Mural or Faux-Finished Wall (blocking in colors, lots of layering, adding final details, etc.). We are very excited to be taking some of Tanya Roy Veits classes in the upcoming months, so we can really get a feel for the glass-art process. And, we want to say Thank You SO much again - to AAE Glass for including us in the opening of their AMAZING new studio! It will be no doubt - an incredible place to learn! You can see some of our work under my pictures on my personal FaceBook page or @ our website: TheKatsMeow.com.

  31. Anna Blair -

    My websites are; www.artfire.com/dichroicglassworks, www.rubylane.com/glassworks, and www. etsy.com/pendantplace Nearly all the decals I use are yours (I don't know why I didn't apply for a wholesale discount when you were first starting out)! I'm also starting wire wrapping and teaching myself silver smithing...(decals are sure easier!)

    I'm a former High School art teacher and life long artist, currently working with fused glass! Although I love other mediums (watercolor, clay, pen and ink, airbrush, and stained glass are among some of my former favorites.) Glass has held my attention for around ten years. I love the surprise and suspense of opening the kiln door after eight hours...sort of like a mini-Christmas!

    I hand cut, layer art glass with dichroic and fuse them together in my home studio kiln. Nothing is made from a mold. Most items have been fused and fired three times to 1600 degrees, then slowly annealed to make the piece durable and harden the glass. Each piece is unique, as you can never fully predict how the fused glass will react to the dichroic layer.

    Dichroic glass consists of multiple ultra-thin layers of different metals (such as gold or silver); oxides of such metals as titanium, chromium, aluminium, zirconium, or magnesium; or silica are vaporised by an electron beam in a vacuum chamber. The vapor then condenses on the surface of the glass in the form of a crystal structure. A protective layer of quartz crystal is sometimes added. Other variants of such physical vapor deposition (PVD) coatings are also possible. The finished glass can have as many as 30 to 50 layers of these materials, yet the thickness of the total coating is approximately 30 to 35 millionths of an inch (about 760 to 890 nm). The coating that is created is very similar to a gemstone and, by careful control of thickness, different colors may be obtained.

    The total light that hits the dicro layer equals the wavelengths reflected plus the wavelengths passing through the dichro layer. Due to variations in the firing process, individual results can never be exactly predicted, so each piece of fused dichroic glass is unique. It is this unpredictability that makes fusing glass so interesting..and beautiful!

  32. Hi everyone, My name is Pam Honken and I love glass! Tanya has been inspiring me for quite some time since I first discovered AAE glass. I enjoy watching her success as she expands to teach and inspire others in the world of glass. I know she most definitely inspires me!

    As a Navy spouse, flexibility is a way of life that is a necessity every day. As an Occupational Therapist or as a glass artist my creativity is allowed to develop and blossom with time. As a full time home health occupational therapist, my studio time is pretty much limited to nights and weekends. I am constantly jotting down ideas for new creations as I am driving from one location to the next. Some of my inspirations arrive unexpectedly while others are planned... to some extent. Shapes, colors, designs, animals, buildings... you name it, I am inspired by it. Dan, high school sweetheart, love of my life and husband of 24 years is always coming up with new ideas to keep my creative juices flowing and new ideas growing.

    My website, phdezign.com is currently under construction and I will soon have more details about my work, including jewelry and art for sale online. If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to send me an email at pam@phdezign.com Thanks and keep on fusing! Pam :)

  33. Hello, my name is Jane Richard, Co-Owner of The Bead Box in Tecumseh, Michigan. I am always looking for new artists. We enjoy hosting trunk shows for these artists. Please visit us on the web at www.thebeadboxmi.com or on facebook. or you can email us at thebeadboxmi@yahoo.com.. Happy Beading!

    My name is Laurie,and I'm a lampwork glass beadmaker who seems to keep moving around. I'm presently on the coast of Mississippi, with a studio space at The Gallery in Ocean Springs. You can stop by most days and see me working at the torch, take classes or make special requests for a bead designed by you and I.

    Thanks for looking, and have a wonderful holiday season!

  36. Weisser Glass Studio is celebrating Small Business Saturday with 10% OFF all glass purchases. We are also having a holiday open house and craft show Sunday Dec. 4 from 1-4. many of our students and customers will be displaying their creations in glass. A great way to do some holiday shopping and talk with the artists.

  37. Thanks to those still sharing their small businesses with us. KEEP THEM COMING!!! This is what today is about! Be sure to support your local small businesses as well as online small businesses. We all know how important that is and we are happy to share our blog as a place to meet as many small businesses as possible.

  38. I've been enjoying your decals and email updates for a while now. I am pleasantly surprised to read about your generosity to other artists. I am a lampworker in Deer Park LI NY. I do some fusing but mainly torch work focusing on solid sculpture. I currently teach small torch classes in both borosilicate and soft glass. My work can be seen at www.RosGlassWorld.com

  39. I've finally found my true passion in fused glass jewelry. AAE Glass makes it easy with tutorials and supplies. I'd love to attend a workshop, but is not feasible at this time, so I do enjoy the educational videos, keep them coming.
    I began expanding my jewelry making about 5 years ago and have now began to focus mainly on fused glass jewelry, rather than the former hodge podge I created. I do enjoy usings found opbjects, but most of my work is wire wrapped or bezel set in sterling silver.
    I'm located in southwest Iowa and have a studio in our barn. Thus the name Barn Art Studio for my business. I sell on storeenvy.com http://www.barnartstudio.storenvy.com and post several of my pieces on the BarnArtStudioFacebook page associated with our personal pages, which is AndyandValAllen.
    Message or email for more information as I will be beginning workshops again after the first of the year.

I have been a lampworker for just over five years and I have been doing fusing for three years. I have taken both Extreme Fusing Workshops I & II!! What an inspiration Tanya is to the students who take this class. It really does inspire you and allow your creativity to reach new levels. I love creating fused glass pieces - whether they are "Picasso" pendants or using the decals from AAE Glass. I will be participating in the Rocky Mountain Bead Bazaar in Denver, CO on April 27 & 28 this year to showcase my fused glass art. We will also be in the Christmas in Windsor show in Windsor, CO again this year - November 23 & 24. If you are in the area during these shows be sure to drop by and say hello. My website is: www.BluDragonfly.etsy.com

  47. Hello everyone, Bron here from BronzBeadz and Glass. Thanks AAE Glass for the opportunity to post our details enabling us all to connect with one another. I love the limitlessness that working with glass offers and was fortunate to win 3rd prize in the recent AAE Glass fusing competition. To see my pieces, please drop by my facebook page and/or website. I generally post my pieces as they are made on my FB page. I look forward to meeting new glass enthusiasts !!
