This egg is glass with hand painted by: mike lemon written on the back. It also has a sticker on the back that says Fenton 1989. It is made with a pedestal attached also made of glass. Its white iridescent
with pink and purple tulips painted on one side. I would like to know its value also. I got it at a yard sale for .25 cents. I have already tried looking on Fenton art glass website, but I could not find any thing listed with that date. I don’t know any other way of looking it up on the web.
I want to learn to do stained glass art and I’m starting to research it. One thing I don’t quite understand is if most crafters buy pre-colored glass, create their own (with chemicals) or paint their glass. I’m also looking for more info on framing the glass as an actual window as opposed to framing for hanging.
I am making a beautiful and unique mobile for my baby. The theme is based on original and unique works of glass art (blown, stained, etc.) from each state that I’ve been to while pregnant with my baby girl. I’ve found a couple stores in the West End that sell the kind of pieces I am looking for, however those pieces were not made in Tennessee or by Tennessean artists. I appreciate any help with artist names, sites, stores, etc.

In this video you can see how blown glass is placed in a mold to shape the glass. This way you can get consistency in the glass which is especially needed when you are making a match set of glasses. This process is used in a production environment and not just a one-off process for hand blown glass art.
I want to do some glass art with my teens. There were some materials that my husband use to use that would simulate stained glass. It was a black substance that you “draw” onto the glass, let dry and then paint. Anybody know what I’m talking about?
