Thanksgiving Holiday Break

Suevel Studios and Chicago School of Glass Art will be closed from Sunday, November 23rd until Monday, December 1st for the Thanksgiving Holiday.  We will be taking the time to spend with our family and friends and celebrate all that we have to be thankful for this year.  We hope that you and your family will do the same and have a very joyous and blessed Thanksgiving.

Happy Thanksgiving

Natalia’s First Mosaic

Natalia’s First Mosaic

Natalia has been going to town during our Saturday Mosaic Quick and Easy Class. Here is her first indirect method stepping stone. We will show this to you again when the cement has dried and by then Natalia will probably have her first mosaic direct method piece completed. I think we found the next Trudi Lloyd-Williams! Nice job Natalia.

I know several of my regulars have been watching this project unfold in our studio and they wanted to see the final project in place; so, here you go. For everyone else, the brief Reader’s Digest description and for those of you that know me that’s an oxymoron, is the homeowner came to Suevel Studios with the center round stained glass window wanting to somehow highlight the window in their sunroom. Doesn’t sound too hard until you understand that the homeowner’s great grandparent originally made the round window, which was coming apart and has hand painting on the glass that was not fired onto the glass. During the cleaning process special care had to be taken as to not remove the old paint. Once the cleaning and repair work was completed we took the round window and created a very simple design producing the now large rectangle window. Subsequently when we finished the main window we fashioned the two accent corner windows to compliment the main window. And there you have it finished and installed.

Fusing Class Bowls

Ya Have To Know Denise

To a certain extent I guess we are all a little hard on ourselves and our own art at times, but Ya have to know Denise to really appreciate these windows to their full extent. We have watched Denise make glass art for quite some time now and on every count when she is done they are beautiful and not that I want to add another “but”, but off on the side you can usually hear Denise seemingly not happy with her work. Well, Denise you made another beautiful set of windows and not only that they look like they were made specifically for that door and  set of sidelights.
