Anybody out there?

Hello Internet…. I have a question for you.

I started this blog as a way of fulfilling a the requirements for a series of assignments that I had during my time at Sheridan. We had to document every firing we did as precisely as possible, in order to make sure that we could learn as much as we could from adjusting the variables in each firing. Documenting our experiments as we go is an important learning tool, the more information that I record, the more I can have an idea of what to expect when I open the kiln each morning. I decided to do it publicly because I believe that the more we share, the better all our work will be.

I’ve noticed that I’m actually getting quite a few hits here, quite a few more than I expected to get. And, I know they’re not all just me and my close friends, since I’m getting hits from countries that I’m pretty sure I don’t know anybody from.

So, I think it would be interesting to get to know the people I haven’t met yet, or know who’s reading that I do know. Who are you, and why are you following, or finding yourself here? What do you want more of? Are you a new here, or have you been internet stalking me for a while now? Are you a glassworker? Do you have any suggestions for me to make this corner of the internet more interesting or useful to you?

Anyways, hello! I want to meet you! Introduce yourself! Please?

  1. Hey Ainsley! It's Jen – I'm reading because your work is amazing and I love keeping up with what you are up to. Hearing about your adventures inspires me to my own. I have no real suggestions for you, except that I hope you keep it up 🙂

  2. I know we've talked about this directly before but I always especially enjoy the posts where you share the thoughts and ideas behind your artwork along with the beautiful work that you do. As you did with the techtonic scars series, it's interesting to learn the process and the stories that shape your work.I enjoy reading the rest of it to so carrying on as you do works well.~Matthew

  3. Hey Jen! You have a blogger account! When will you start blogging so that I can see all the wonderful things you're working on too?I'll try to write more about why I'm doing what I'm doing for you, Matth… when I know what that is. I guess you're not really the non-glassy person to ask if it's too glassy, you've spent too much time hanging around with us, so you understand most of what we're talking about, eh?

  4. no pressure, just thought I'd add my two cents worth. I figured that wouldn't be the topic every week :)I do definitely have the advantage of fairly high exposure to glass for a non-glassy person. Often the details of the glass types and firing temperatures are still pretty lost on me, but the process and results of even just your reaction tests are pretty neat so that tends to be what sinks in. still being relatively non-glassy, it still all looks pretty magical to me~Matthew
