Fusography: order early for holiday gift giving

You're probably thinking, why are you talking about holiday gift giving in August? December is four months away! In the handmade world, four months seems more like four weeks when you're busy completing orders and creating inventory to sell at markets and in your online shop. So, this is just a little public service announcement to remind you to get your holiday orders in early. Fusography orders take three to four weeks to complete, so you'll want to get those in soon. Most other items can be completed in two weeks or less (if I don't have to special order glass).

I was ordering some decals for a custom order of coasters today and that's what made me think about the holidays. I've got some fun holiday graphics that I will be sharing over the next few months, so let me know if something strikes your fancy and we'll get your order placed.

Fusography video series and ebook coming soon!

Good news for those of you who have been waiting patiently for the Fusography workshop video series! It will be available in August! If you are interested in updates on the video series or want to be informed of when it is available for purchase, sign up here. I've been working on the content and now I'm almost ready to start shooting the video. If I were to teach an in-person Fusography class/workshop it would take about a week, so the video series is the smartest, most time-efficient approach, even though I love in-person teaching. Maybe I will offer a downloadable cardboard cutout so you can pretend I am there teaching.

Have you ever realized you have waaaay too many of a certain thing? Maybe it's shoes. Maybe it's makeup. Maybe it's cats. What do you do when you make this realization? You declutter. Except with the cats. You're kind of stuck with them. Well, this is just the dilemma I found myself in with fused glass pendants. I have hundreds of pendants available and most of them are not listed in the Etsy shop (but they will be soon)! So, in an effort to reduce inventory and make room for new designs, all fused glass pendants in stock are now only $10. Yes, only $10!!! Stock up and save or do some early holiday shopping. The price is right!

Fresh from the kiln: Fusography Coasters

Fresh from the kiln

These Fusography coasters just came out of the kiln and I'm working on getting them listed in the Etsy shop, but had to share them here first.


It's been a while since I did any with this cute camera design and the red and mint green are two new colors I haven't done before. What do you think?

Be sure to check the Etsy shop for these listings or drop me a line and let me know if you see one (or more) that you must have! Coasters are $15 each and shipping is $6 for up to 4 coasters.

Professional Artist Tent For Sale!

Flourish Trimline Canopy, for sale, Sassy Glass Studio, Knoxville, TN
{Click image to view larger}
It's been a couple of years since I have participated in an art show and I've been thinking long and hard about whether or not I will do one again...and I am 99.9% sure I won't, so I am selling my awesome artist tent. This tent has only been set up about a dozen times and is in really great condition. There are a couple of small holes that have been patched and a bit of normal wear and tear. This is one of the most popular tents, a Flourish Trimline Canopy, used by artists all over the country. The informational flyer below shows the tent set up at the Dogwood Arts Festival Art Fair a couple of years ago. It comes with two awnings - one is 30 inches and helps keep the sun (and rain!) out of the front side of the tent and the rear 54-inch awning is perfect if you have room behind your tent to set your chair outside or to allow for some covered storage.

I don't really want to ship the tent because it is big and bulky, but if you are interested and don't live locally, we will ship it for an additional cost. Please contact my husband, Allan, at 865-659-3273 or allan@almphoto.com if you are interested. We will accept cash, money order or credit card.

Please share the flyer with anyone you think may be interested. A used artist tent is a great way to save money when you're getting into art shows.

Thank you!
Lisa

Super Sassy Sizzling Summer Sale & Fusography video series and ebook update

Summer is finally here!


I'm back on the saddle!
Thanks to my friend Cassie for taking this photo of me at Haw Ridge!

Want to learn something new?

It feels great to be back to doing all the things I love like riding my bikes, working in the glass studio and teaching fused glass classes! Yes, you heard that right, I'm back to teaching classes!! If you are interested in learning how to create your own fused glass art or want to take your skills to the next level, contact me to sign up for either the Beginner Fused Glass Class or Intermediate Fused Glass Class. Both classes are four hours and you get to choose the date and time that works best for you. Plus if you and  up to two friends sign up to take a class together, you each save 10% off the cost of the class. Classes are usually limited to three students, but if you don't mind getting close to your friends I can do a group of four. Summer is always a fun time to learn something new!

Fusography Video and Ebook : Coming soon!

Good news!
I'm finally out of my aircast/boot and sling! I start physical therapy this week and soon I will be back to mountain biking and working in the glass studio doing more than cutting blanks for coasters and pendants. Straight lines are pretty easy for me even with my non-dominant, right hand, but I'm ready to get creative again. And ride my bikes!

More good news!
Over the last few years, I've had many people inquire if I would teach a class on Fusography and I've thought long and hard about the best way to do this. (Don't know what Fusography is? Read this!) My goal for teaching Fusography properly is to show the whole process for Fusography from creating the digital file to send off to Decals 4 Artists to be turned into the fusible decals to slumping or draping pieces with decals. The awesome folks over at Decals 4 Artists have firing schedules and some helpful tips, but I believe that it is ideal to learn how to do something by doing, but when it is a lengthy process, then the best method is by watching and then doing. An in-person class, like how I teach my Beginner and Intermediate classes, would be great but the whole process for Fusography takes days, not hours, which is why I've decided on a video and ebook. There will be a series of videos demonstrating each part of the process along with helpful tips I've learned along the way. The ebook will have a great step-by-step guide of how to layout the decal sheets, apply the decals, sizing pieces and even some suggestions on pricing. The video and ebook will be ready to launch this summer so stay tuned for updates!
