The 80's Room Gains Recognition

If you have walked through the AAE Glass Art Studio, no doubt you have seen the "80's room."  When we first opened, Molly and Tanya Veit had a vision to turn part of the studio into an 80's theme.  Both love that era and honestly, most of the decor was supplied by 80's swag that Molly already owned.  A small purchase on ebay for some 45's and album covers and the 80's room was born. 

The fun style, numerous album covers and vinyl records have taken many a glass artist back in time.  It has become part of the creative process for some people in the studio.  Several glass artists have credited the 80's room with jump starting a design they are working on.  You can lose yourself in these walls.

Thank you to for featuring Molly's work on their blog this week.  There are some unique retro ideas on this blog and worth a read if you have time.  Have a great weekend everyone.

Suncoast Glass Guild

Kelly of the Suncoast Glass Guild stopped by the AAE Glass Art Studio the other day and introduced herself.  She explained that she is organizing a glass guild for glass artists of all mediums and abilities on the gulf coast of Florida.  Kelly is in the process of recruiting glass artists for the guild and judging by the excitement and passion she spoke with in regards to this particular group, I am confident she will succeed. 

Kelly's vision is to create a group of glass artists willing to share and learn from each other.  She feels especially strong about beginners.  We share the same line of thinking when it comes to people giving glass art a try.  We want to make it an enjoyable experience.  We believe that if you give a person a positive environment and honest instruction, more likely than not they will enjoy themselves and pursue glass art in the future.  Even if they don't pursue it, we can take pride that we represented the art of glass in a positive way. 

We are happy to be involved with any organization that passionately and positively promotes glass art.  AAE Glass believes in supporting the glass artist and art community as a whole and the Suncoast Glass Guild represents exactly that.  To learn more about affordable membership, be sure to visit their website
