Casting Glass with Glenda Emory

June, 2011 Featured Artist - Glenda Emory of Glenda Emory Designs.  
  Glenda works as the Studio Specialist & Instructor at Hollander Fusing Center in Atlanta, Georgia. She is also the secretary for the Atlanta Glass Art Guild. Glenda became enamored with glass fusing after taking a beginning class in 2006.

She loves using No Days Liquid Fusing Adhesive for kiln casting because "it allows you to pile more glass into the mold, therefore getting more out of your cast piece. The No Days keeps the glass that sits above the mold line from shifting and ruining the mold or making a mess in the kiln."

When frit painting, Glenda loves using No Days Liquid Fusing Adhesive as "it is great for helping the frit stay in place once you have your design in place.  No Days Fusing Adhesive also lets you build up the frit in areas where you want bold color or more texture with out having to wait for the initial layers to dry between each application of frit. I is a great time saver when doing frit painting."

Glenda grew up learning different craft techniques from ceramics to sewing with her mother, but nothing has captured her interest like glass. Glenda has taught beginning fusing and wire wrapping techniques to local scout and church groups. As a perpetual student Glenda plans to learn many more glass techniques to advance her love of art glass.

"I grew up in a family of very creative women.  My mom used to tell me stories of my grandmother transcribing library books, including the illustrations, by hand for my mother and her sister to treasure, because they did not have enough money to buy books.  My mother and I took many crafting classes together as I grew up.  We tried our hands at many crafts. But, glass has drawn me like no other.  I have fond memories of visiting the Fenton Glass factory when I was a child and wondering at how everything was made. I have long collected carnival and antique glass marveling at its color and sparkle. I love that no two art glass pieces are alike.  Even if you take the same pattern and make it twice there will be subtle and sometimes distinct differences between the two pieces."
