We’ll have three project types to choose from: kiln-formed plates, stripes & dots, and basic glass fusing. See Bullseye’s class descriptions online at www.BullseyeGlass.com for information about these projects. The first plate is free; additional plates are $15 apiece. You don’t need to be a member of OGG but must be over the age of 16. You need to have knowledge of cutting. If you would like to bring snacks please feel free to do so. The finished plates & bowls will be sold in the Empty Bowls booth at the Waterfront Blues Festival to benefit the Oregon Food Bank. This is a fun way to give back to the community and try something new. Your name will be entered in the drawing for a $100 Bullseye gift certificate. Please RSVP to Lyn, the Fuseathon Coordinator. Looking forward to hearing from all of you. Let’s make this the best year ever!!
We are really in for a treat this month… Portland-based (internationally known and exhibited) glass blower Andy Paiko will present to our group.
Please join us on Wednesday, June 28 at 7:00 p.m. at the Beaverton Community Center (across from the library).
Andy is graduate of Cal Poly San Obispo. Even before graduating with a B.S. in Studio Art, he was an accomplished glass blower. He is known for his amazing, elaborate sculptural work in glass (usually clear, sometimes etched). He has exhibited at SOFA and other major design fairs, has received the Louis Comfort Tiffany Foundation Biennial Award, and shown in solo and group shows throughout the world. His work has been selected several times for the New Glass Review, and he has been featured on the cover of Glass magazine. You may remember his glass and sound installation at the Museum of Contemporary Craft, or seen his work at the Renwick Gallery of the Smithsonian.
Also this month, you’re invited to bring your donated bowls and other glass objects for the Empty Bowls event at the Blues Festival.
As always, refreshments are welcomed. We hope to see you there!
