Cool Installation

As the warm days of summer ramp up, our minds naturally drift toward visions of respite, shade and water.  Our cascading cast glass eating counter embodies that vision of a refreshing, spring mountain thaw, or an icy beverage being poured into a glass.  Its surface looks very cool; feels very cool.  Amazing how visual and tactile senses can affect your perceptions – glass can do that!

Glass Reflections

We just passed Valentine’s Day, a day that in some ways is the most special holiday of the year for us. I hope you had a chance to see our latest project-focused email with the jewelry store glass panels:

February picture Resized

In that missive, we gave all our clients, suppliers, network buddies, supporters and design team members a Valentine. Wish it could be beautiful glass jewels. What a combination – individuals we appreciate and glass we love. At times we do heroic things…large heavy pieces with wondrous color and edgework. We probably wouldn’t create this on our own. Everyone around us forces us to be better and better. We push past self-imposed limits and fabricate pieces that fulfill a vision – and sometimes even astound us.
In the coming weeks, I’ll write about things that are interesting, informative and occasionally quirky – all under 200 words. I’m certainly not a writer, but I am eager to share with you some of my thoughts. Feel free to comment, suggest, and disagree. We’ll start a conversation.

Danielle

Danielle Lagueux is the newest member of the Glassworks team.  She earned her BFA from Massachusetts College of Art where she concentrated in sculptural glass art.  When she first moved to Seattle in 2008, she discovered and fell in love with Glassworks’ portfolio.  After seeing the showroom in person she knew this was the company she wanted to work for.  Even though she enjoys blowing glass, Danielle’s self-proclaimed “tetris mentality” was drawn to the order and control she found in cast and kiln formed glass.  In addition to loving warm glass, Danielle also finds joy in fiber arts, mold making, and metal and wood fabrication.  Between her experience in glass and her knowledge and skills with other materials, Danielle brings a resourceful and clever approach to her work.

We received these pictures of our beautiful Aisu glass installed in a residence in California as a glowing glass counter.   To achieve this stunning look, we originally met with the owner in our studio.  He immediately loved seeing and touching our glass!  We then  worked long distance with his contractor to insure a perfect installation.

You don’t have to visit our studio to understand the unique properties of glass.  With our sample program located on our website, you can request a sample of a type of glass you’re interested in.   If you decide to purchase a piece from us, the price of that sample is deducted from the final price of your glass.  The look and feel of glass sells itself!

If you have installation pictures you would like us to feature, please send them our way.  We love to see the results of working together to achieve your vision.
