I’m really enjoying this Vitirgraph murrine!
Downloaded some new sounds (from Bleep!) for the occasion

The murrine I pulled and cut samples from the other day- I believe I already shared a photo but JIC here it is again ๐Ÿ™‚

Pulled murrine. :)
Pulled murrine. ๐Ÿ™‚

Yesterday I tack fused some pieces to 3mm scrap glass, left over from the pulls.Screen Shot 2014-02-27 at 12.30.09 PM
More sounds…..

Something really neato when pulling Vitrigraph cane is towards the end of the pot (full of glass) the cane start pulling out with a hollow core. Straws, or tubes. I managed to pull some thick enough to turn into beads or something. ๐Ÿ™‚Screen Shot 2014-02-27 at 12.29.21 PM
The OAC grant is enabling me to take funds normally put towards rent (made from classes, sales) towards highly necessary/needed equipment! So, I purchased this saw… ๐Ÿ˜‰Screen Shot 2014-02-27 at 12.29.55 PM
Now I can make clean slices through the thicker murrine bundles, and really get this work moving forward!
Admittedly this saw is MASSIVE! It came with a stand, a kiddy pool :giggle: and everything necessary for making an incredible mess- I have it currently set-up (kind of) in the studio basement, which already suffers from water constantly running along the floor from snow melting outside, and a busted pipe from the upstairs tenants sink my landlady has yet to fix! :/ Not too happy about the state of the basement. Last year sewage erupted from a city pipe, the year before grass started growing along with mushrooms in one of the corners… this is why I am currently looking for a new ‘industrial’ studio space. Unless of course this basement gets an overhaul! (which seems unlikely).
MUSIC!!! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Here are the fused pieces.. just tack fused with medium frit melt Just experiments. Now I’m setting up some murrine bundles and will fuse/tack fuse(?) them, slice, grind and slump, then build some various forms.
Stay tuned! Meanwhile, Here’s some more audio adventures for ya’s.

Eternally grateful!
