@level42gallery hosted a super rad glass gathering last night for the final day of class. @eusheen and @nateylove put together some serious heat during their demos this week. Beautiful wigwags, tight fillacellos, and pro shaping all combined along with some #goldruby and #goldamethyst . We'll post some final pics as soon as it's cooled down! #ashevilleglass #moltenauralabs #eastcoastisthebeastcoast @level42gallery @mountainglass

Telemagenta and Royal Jelly are ready to ooze out of the hive as the latest additions to our AuraTones palette! They are juicy, gold-based colors that look absolutely radiant, with no need for special lighting. These awesome pieces made by @jdz____  show off their unique color range. As you can see, his thicker and more heavily worked parts develop an inner glow that sets off the color beautifully. @jdz____  is absolutely killing these solid color blowouts. He's able to avoid coilpot lines and achieve smooth gradations of color and haze. Check his feed for more inspiring examples of his work. We have firsts and abnormals available on our web site now. And we will be getting these out to distributors in the next few weeks. 1sts are Museum Quality glass $160/lb. Abnormals are oddly shaped, less than perfect rods, no stones $100/lb. #daylightreactive #sandcrafted #auratones #museumquality #supersaturated #madeinamerica   #royaljelly #telemagenta #gold #moltenaura #juicefactory #jelly #purple #pink #magenta  #33CTE #blowouts #northcarolina #color #sexy

We had a swell time last night at the grand opening @level42gallery here in Asheville! It was fantastic to see familiar faces and to meet new ones. A lot of things came together over the past weeks to make this happen. We're super excited to have this hub of creativity and fire right in our backyard. Congrats to the team who put this together and to all the artists involved. Looking forward to many more awesome demos, classes, and events at this beautiful new space! #ashevilleglass @aarongalloway   @alexsglass   @arcanist_jon   @aricbovie @aw_glass   @bbqglass   @bengarsonglass   @bluesoldierart   @bmftglassarts   @bohoweglass   @boogieglass @brianjacobson313   @bronxglass   @bubsyglass   @buchoglass   @cameronburnsglass   @cameronreedglass @carverbeezkneez @chadg_glass   @chipglass   @dawnkglass   @delongglass   @derangedlionglass   @devadita   @devoglass   @dewglassdesigns   @dot_mark   @egonglass   @elksthatrun @ericlawglass   @erincarteeglass   @et_glass   @fmhglass   @forrestglass   @formallyknownasseath   @glassicalcreations   @glasstro   @gnarlacarla   @greenwood_glass @hatchetglass @hahaglass @hefeglass @hemlockglass   @hoyesquartz @ianchadwickglass   @ickeglass   @jameslangglass   @jawnowens   @jdz____   @justincarterglass   @karmaglass420   @kuchekup @levicarterglass   @libbyglass   @lizwrightglass   @logi_glass_art   @madglassman @macsglass @magism   @map_glass   @matt_tyner   @mcsquaredglass   @minguezglass   @mogliglass   @mokshaglassworks   @nasteeglass   @nateylove   @olour_glass   @pipemaker   @radglass @rajkommineni   @rocksolidglass   @roosterglass   @ryeglass   @scomomoanet   @shanesmithglass   @shermglass   @shwango   @sibelley   @snoopsglass   @snafuglass   @sasha_hess_glass   @teurfs   @the_glass_carpenter   @totemglass   @tatum_glass   @tmiglass   @torchress   @trip_a   @wytry   @xanderdamglass   @yunkglass

If you haven't already noticed, we are huge proponents of blowouts. In our estimation, they have the cleanest look for hollow forms. Crucible tubing typically has extra air and coilpots can leave striations or a "graininess", even in very transparent colors. Blowouts have a very pristine look that maximizes the optical clarity of the glass. Once you have the tech down, you'll find they don't take much more time than a good coilpot, and the results are well worth it. A one-stick blowout can be done in approximately 10mins. This blowout is made with two full-length rods and took approximately 15mins. There are many approaches to solid color blowouts, this video shows a very straightforward, but effective technique. First, the rods get melted into a gob. Once that is melted into a smooth solid ball of glass, it gets dropped onto a blowpipe. A bubble is blown into it and then it is blown out and shaped. Done. Other artists use different techniques to achieve their blowouts. We've seen blowout tech that allows for beautiful color gradients, and can be used with troublesome cadmium colors as well. We will keep sharing these ideas as they come up. As the quality of colored boro gets better and better, the techniques will evolve as well. And the final work can't help but reflect that evolution. We are continually amazed at the level of work being made in this industry and are excited to be a part of it!
