It’s been a while since I’ve posted. It’s a toss up sometimes as to where to post glass – there is so many social media platforms to choose from – Facebook, twitter, instagram . . . and probably new ones popping up each day. So if you visit this site and don’t see anything new, please check out Bridget Stiverson just works on Facebook or follow me on Instagram at bridgetstiverson. There are usually pics and posts of current projects.
A much needed hiatus occurred between December and May, where all I did was think about glass projects. I was absolutely non-productive. I lurked and watched what others were doing, but I did not attempt anything new. I’m back at it though and have started getting ready for a very scaled back show season.
Here are some of the new items that will be available at summer shows.
These sweet flowers were made using the Slurry Technique taught by Creative Paradise Glass. You can find information on how to create these (if you are a glassie) on their FB page or website.
I have also gotten back into printing. Still having troubles making screens for powder printing (I’ll eventually master this!), but have found that I can get decent images for enamel printing using EZScreens. I am thrilled with the outcome of this piece, which can be viewed from either side. This is a photo from a trail drive that I took as it went through Glasgow last winter. The Bullseye glass that I used emulates the steam that was coming off the backs of the cattle and the mist that was hanging.
And finally, I too have caught the murrine bug. I have completed one project and am now on my second. You may have seen this posted on Facebook or Instagram (my very first posting there), but it is an example of my efforts to get back into the studio and being productive again.
I normally wait to title a project (it it gets one), but this has been named already as many thought I was processing green beans rather than glass. So it is “Green Beans” for now.
Please remember that any piece that you see is available for sale. Shipping is available to any where in the contiguous United States. Thank you for stopping by, if you see something you like or have a question regarding a process or product that I used, please feel free to leave a comment.
