Tanya Veit's First DVD is Available

AAE Glass is proud to present the first DVD by Tanya Veit including the Picasso engraved dichroic pendant and creating your own patterns in dichroic glass, while layering up...and don't forget the "shadow" technique.
This webinar was recorded live, hosted by Glass Patterns Quarterly and contains valuable information that you can watch over and over.  We have had numerous requests for years from glass artists looking for a DVD from Tanya, HERE it is!  This is a great way to add additional glass fusing techniques that are proven to sell in the market place.  
This is a DATA dvd that is meant to be played on your computer. Realtime flash player is required to be downloaded. Stay creative!

Cape Coral, Florida Leads the Way in 2013 Employment Outlook

AAE Glass has had the pleasure of calling Cape Coral, Florida home for the past three years.  We have operated the AAE Glass Art Studio in the heart of downtown Cape Coral for the past year and have made it a priority to get involved with the community.  It is important to us as small business owners to portray the city in the best light whenever possible, that is why we are proud to share this article from Forbes Magazine with you. 
Cape Coral/Fort Myers Florida is forecasting a 23% net job increase in 2013.  This is the highest number in the nation and the city is taking the lead very seriously.  Lee county, Florida was one of the hardest hit counties in America when the real estate bubble burst a few years ago.  After listening to political debates these past few months, no matter which side you are on, it is refreshing to read positive news, such as this.  If you haven't had the pleasure of visiting Cape Coral, Florida, take advantage if the opportunity presents itself.  For our glass artist friends located right here in SW Florida, lets make an effort to support art of all kinds and make Cape Coral, Florida a hotbed for artists of all mediums.

AAE Glass and Olympic Kilns Partner to Bring you a New Glass Fusing Contest

AAE Glass, Tanya Veit and Olympic Kilns have partnered to bring you a glass fusing contest for the ages!  Those of you who have had an opportunity to learn or work with Tanya Veit know she doesn't do anything unless it is over the top.  This contest is no different.  AAE Glass has built its business and reputation on helping up and coming glass artists gain access to the knowledge, tools and supplies it takes to grow.  Thanks to Olympic Kilns generous donation of a FREE hotbox kiln and Tanya Veit's donation of a FREE Extreme Fusing workshop you have a chance to advance your glass art business for FREE!  The unique part of this contest is every participant is a winner because of the FREE publicity you and your glass art will receive as a result.
All entrants will receive a link to their online store, a brief bio and picture of your entry.  The last time we sponsored a contest like this we received over 20,000 views and received reports from entrants of hits to their sites in the thousands as well as record sales.  The exposure you will receive from entering this contest alone is worth the time it takes for you to submit an entry.  Winning any number of prizes is the cherry on top.  You can view the participants of the last contest HERE and the winners HERE.
 Prizes Include
1-Olympic Kiln Hotbox 8" x 8" wide x 4.5" deep, 3 key controller included. ($680 retail Value)

Last years Extreme Fusing workshop winners Maureen Connor and Tonya Nelson have agreed to be two of our judges this year along with the hottest glass fusing teacher going right now, Tanya Veit. We will be announcing celebrity judges along the way, but right now, we want to outline the contest for you and get your creative juices flowing.

***We do not want to limit your creativity when entering this contest.  You can submit any glass art piece (big or small, jewelry or sculptural) that uses an AAE Glass decal, silver setting or technique taught in a Tanya Veit workshop that you attended.  AAE Glass has created the only low fire, color decals on the market that will fire on dark glass.  We also have a line of large, low fire decals that can be used with bowls, plates, vases, tiles and more.  Our glass fusing decals and silver settings can be found at any leading distributor in the world, so feel free to ask them for their complete line of AAE Glass products.
