New England Chapter Virtual Meeting
Sunday, November 15, 2020
1:00 to 3:00 PM

We’ll be meeting via Zoom on Sunday, November 15, 2020 from 1:00 to 3:00 PM to see a demo of a paperweight very similar to the one pictured below.  The demo will be at New Temple Glassworks in Temple NH, the studio of Colleen and Gary Grebus where it will be videoed for a live video demonstration.

The meeting is free for members who will receive a link in the chapter newsletter.  Non-members are welcome, and there is a guest charge of $8.00, which can be applied to a 2021 membership within 30 days of the meeting. Guests can pay using the Buy Now button below and a link to the Zoom meeting will be emailed to you.

We’ve learned a few things from our first Zoom meeting, and the intention for the first hour or so of this next meeting is to give everyone in the meeting 2-3 minutes each to introduce themselves and to perhaps say something about what they’re working on.  If you want to screen share, please keep it to 1 or 2 pieces, and please have them open on your computer so there’s no delay on your share.   We are hoping to keep things orderly and moving along by calling on people for their turn to speak so we can get to Colleen’s demo.  Again, this Zoom format is new to us, so please bear with us.  We’ll be looking for feedback afterwards, and welcome suggestions from all of you!

Colleen plans to have pre-cut glass pieces, and will show everyone how they are assembled for the fusing.  She’ll also have an assembled and cooled fused piece that she will show for reference.  Ultimately, she’ll have a completed fused piece pre-heated in the kiln, ready for pick up.  Colleen, assisted by Gary will walk the group through the pick-up, encasement and finish in the hot shop.  This should be a great demo, and the combination of techniques should provide inspiration as to how totally different glass techniques can be combined to develop a unique piece!
