In lieu of a formal December Newsletter, this is about as good as we can put together on short notice. We have been busy recently around the studio. We had all new high-tech, high efficiency overhead florescent lighting installed all throughout the store. It makes a big difference later in the afternoon now when the sun goes down so early. The take over of the Purple Room is now complete. All of the System 96 samples, slumping molds, warm glass books, accessories, tools and sundries are all now located in one central spot. Adam, our favourite Metal Guy fabricated some most excellent brackets for holding the Shelf paper and 1/8" fiber paper for easy cutting. Many of the slumping molds that were previously hidden under bubble or foam wrap have been set free and put on more new shelving so you can see what they actually are. Our frit shelves have also been reconfigured to allow us to stock more than double the previous amount we had.
As a result of this consolidation of all things warm glass related, all of our bevels, bevel clusters, and globs have been moved out into the north end of our main store room where the fusing stuff used to be. There are still a few more things we can do to improve the store that we have in mind, but they will have to wait until next year.
We were hoping to have a formal launch of our new-fangled technology, Dye'Namic Infusion for this month. Unfortunately, we are still experiencing some minor issues with colour correction on our printer. As soon as it is working correctly, we'll have a big party to show just what it can do.
