Updates at AAE Glass Art Studio

There have been some major changes and additions to the AAE Glass Art Studio and in the past month.  If you have had a chance to visit the studio and/or store in the past few weeks, you have had the first look at the upgrades. 

The state of the art AAE Glass teaching facility and cold working shop has been broken in by Tanya Veit, Kate MacLeod and Amanda Taylor thus far, with The Crackle King set to make an appearance next week.  Glass artists are getting a one of a kind glass fusing experience from some of the best teachers on the continent and they are loving it, as are we.

We have also added several new products to in the last few weeks.  With the 10 crates of Bullseye sheet glass we received yesterday, we have added Bullseye rods, irids, frit & powder, streakies & collage, special production and more  Visit the studio to pick out your glass or purchase online and we will ship it to you. 

17 new pinch bail designs have been added as well.  Tanya has used these quality pinch bails in her own work for years with much success. 
Last, but not least, I would like to introduce our biggest addition Marley Mae Veit, born December 28th.  Molly and Marley are doing great and we want to thank everyone for the overwhelming support and well wishes.  It is big life events such as this that help us realize what a large family we have in the glass art community.  Thank you again and with your help, AAE Glass is primed to make 2014 the best year in glass fusing yet!

Featured Artist Sandra L. Martin-Smith of Imaginative Creations

Imaginative Creations has just launched their ArtFire store and they are open for business.  Sandra L. Martin-Smith has sold her beautiful fused glass art in local galleries located throughout upstate New York for years with great success.  She has decided to make her glass art available online which will give her exposure across the globe.  Here is more about Sandra in her own words and we at AAE Glass wish her nothing but the best.

I started "IMAGINATIVE CREATIONS" in 2002 as an outlet for my handmade fused glass gifts and jewelry. My husband and I design and create all of our pieces individually with emphasis on originality, color, texture, and shape. Our work is featured at several local shops throughout central upstate NY, and we sell our products at approx. 40 craft shows annually. We love collaborating on our glass, and sharing our work with appreciative patrons and fellow artists. We are in a constant state of flux, and our techniques, materials, and processes are constantly evolving. This evolution by-product is the main source of our creativity, which has definitely increased the popularity of our original fused glass merchandise.
