Thanks for the interest

Yes, by now I have been around the block a few times. This photo-blog is of my 3rd melter build of this class:

I hope by sharing the experience I have gained during this process so that the whole Glass Art community can benefit. Once I am done I will post all the design documents on line for whomever wishes to build their own.

For those who want a kit or just wish a complete unit, I have assigned the manufacturing rights to a local stainless steel machine shop.

I have decided that I need to keep the supply chain closer to home (OK in Canada)

I am building the new production prototype and Ray Jacques of Envirequip envirequip@hughes.net will be manufacturing the kits and complete units 4 km south of here

Hello everyone,
My name is Brent. I am brand new to this forum. I have noticed that most posts on here are 4-8 years old. I am hoping to chat with other folks trying to build backyard hot shops that are cheap and efficient to run but are quality. I have been working with glass for about 20 years but am trying to learn more about wire melters because of their efficiency, cost and safety. Donovan seems to know a lot about this subject so I am trying to learn as much as I can from his posts. Hopefully he is still on here but if anyone else has any advice on wire melters in particular I would appreciate the help. I may have some information of value I can contribute in many other areas of glass. Feel free to contact me
Thanks

Hi Brent, I'm fairly busy at present, but will email you some time this week. However, always feel free to post any questions here at the forum as well. Though there are not a huge number of people on this forum, there are some knowledgeable lurkers who may respond as well.

If I forget to email you for some reason, please remind me here!

Sincerely,
Donovan

Donovan,
Reading this forum, I am convinced that a wire melter might be exactly what I need. I am considering purchasing one or think I might have the skills to make one. I would really appreciate a little bit of your time to discuss this option. My email is brentsheehan@gmail.com. If you have a way I can chat with you I would be forever in your debt. Thanks,
Brent Sheehan

Hi there, currently this forum does not allow upload of images, but you can use one of many free image hosting sites.. photobucket, flickr, image shack, smugmug, etc.. then post a link to the URL in this forum, which will make the image appear here.

I don't know the artist you are referring to, but hope the image posting info helps.

Hi,
Any luck with the threads? My suggestion would be the hotter the bubble, the thinner the threads.

Go To: Subject: GLASS SCULPTURES
Hi ,
Im new here so please don't be too hard if this is in the wrong post area. I bought a beautiful glass sculpture of a Pelican (beauty is in the eye of the beholder). It was recently damaged and my wife is quite upset, the shop in St Paul de Vence France has since changed thoughnI do remember seeing quite a few of this artists items around Europe. I cannot find the details of the piece and need some help tracking down the artist to make another purchase. all help is most welcome .
OK how do i upload a photo ??
