<p />eggor, thanks for posting the pics of John and his scampi, taken at the Lazy L Minifest. Great pics, great scampi![p]So per your request, here are a couple of pictures of the BGE spoonrest that I'm making for eggers. This one's for Papa Q, I'll hand deliver at the Frisco BBQ competition later this month.[p]Here's another shot of the spoonrest. It's made with art glass - I cut the pieces by hand, then fuse them together at 1400 degrees F. After that, I add the hand lettering (available in pure gold, platinum, or copper) and slump the spoonrest in a mold I made, this time at 1200 degrees F. The result is a nice little piece of personalized artwork, that is functional as well.[p]

    Hey Chuck, that's pretty cool.[p]John

  • Yo chuckls,[p]That thing is pretty nifty. Where would I go to have something like that made locally if I were to want different designs and whatnot?[p]Thanks,
    Matt.

    South O,
    If you want to find something like that locally, you'll want to look up a hot glass artist that does fusing and slumping. Or, just drop me an email, I'd be happy to help.[p]Happy Eggin'

    WooDoggies,[p]Hey, thanks, they're fun to make and it gives me something to take my mind off of work for a while...[p]Chuck
  • chuckls,[p]Ever hear of Higgins Glass? They were famous for their fused glass. I have a large collection of their pieces. It's a nice hobby.
  • South O,[p]Like with your FE on it?? ;-)

    Scottie,[p]Actually I'm not the artist in the family (tho I play on on the forum). My wife is the hot glass artist, but I find I have a lot of fun playing with her toys (like ovens and glass cutters and stuff) so I thought I'd make these spoon rests.[p]I myself haven't heard of Higgins Glass but maybe she has. Just for grins here's a link to her website.[p]Happy Eggin'

    chuckls,[p]Are you thinking about making them to order? This crowd would likely keep you very very busy..... dont you think?[p]John

  • chuckls,[p]I get a lot off of ebay as well. That is where you can find their older stuff. They're pretty famous for their work.
