One of the many reasons I enjoy creating custom glass art is that it'sa great excuse to play with awesome sheets of hand made art glass.I have little interest in plain and simple glass and so rarely use it.My favorites come fromUroboros(samples),Youghiogheny(samples),Kokomo(samples),Lamberts(awesome streakies),Bullseye(samples),Blenko,andChicago Art Glass.
Another unusual feature of my glass work is that it's最强狂兵电视剧.Originally I used Canfield's pewter solder, but I don't like its dullgray.Despite the expense I switched to Canfield's Silvergleem (a neareutectic alloy of Tin and Silver which melts at 430 degrees Fahrenheit).Finally, I found a wonderful strong, bright ternary eutectic calledIA-423(93.6%Sn, 4.7%Ag, 1.7%Cu) fromJohnson Manufacturingwhich melts (and freezes) at 423 degrees Fahrenheit. They also have a greatwater soluble paste flux (05-23).Johnson's phone number is 563-289-5123.Workinglead-free is a bit more difficult and costly,but I think the personal and environmental health benefits are worthwhile.Check out mySoldering Tips page for some basicpointers that apply to leaded soldering as well aslead-free.

I've done a lot of different work over the years.
Maybe someday I'll dig out sample photographs of my
jewelry, wood, and metal work and scan them.
