Urgent Message to all Subscribers!
This email was sent out by Hot Glass Houston this morning, and we didn't want you to miss this opportunity! Because we love our students and collectors, we are passing this on as soon as possible. Bob Paterson/Owner of HGH, a Bullseye Retailer, is a fantastic person, and you will enjoy getting to know him. Our classes there have been a great experience for everyone!
ALSO! We are teaching a 4 day workshop which will turn out 2 pieces....One Floral & One Landscape!!! If you really want to learn alo for your money and walk away with TWO large pieces (14"), call quickly! We are firming up dates now for a 4-day weekend in April...there are only 5 seats, and one is taken...and it is $950. If you've ever taken a class from me, you know that we always stay over if necessary to make sure everyone is happy w/what they have learned and done....for no extra cost. That is probably not the best way to make money, but we'd rather have happy students, and we love what we do. So if you need an extra morning, evening, etc., we're here for you!
Have a great, Warm Glass Day!

This pre-announcement is being sent out ONLY to folks on Hot Glass Houston’s distribution list at this time before it will be posted on the website and other public boards early next week.
We are thrilled to announce that Donna Sarafis, the 1st place winner of the 2010 Delphi Art Glass Festival, is returning to Hot Glass Houston on Saturday and Sunday, April 2 and 3, to lead the Winter Aspens landscape panel project workshop.
In this two day workshop, you will make a landscape panel, 17” wide by 9” tall, similar to the one pictured here which was made by Regina, one of her students, full of depth, texture and color as Donna Sarafis teaches and leads you through her unique artistic techniques.
You will learn how to compose a small landscape, the painterly use of color, light and texture using a wide mix of glasses and about perspective in your composition. Not only will you become a landscape artist, you will have fun learning how to do it in this very special medium of glass.
We will begin with a little fusing history, some fusing vocabulary, a discussion of COE, a review of Bullseye Glass in its different forms, and how to apply heat in a kiln. This is an action packed, fast paced workshop in which you’ll make a remarkable landscape using all sizes of frits, stringers, 2mm and 3mm glasses.

About Donna Sarafis…
Donna’s glass imagery comes to life as she builds layer upon layer of different colors and forms of glass creating a texture and depth that begs to be touched. Some have described the rich, bold, dimensionality of Donna’s work as if though she had applied texture and color to the glass just as a skilled painter applies oils to a canvas with a palette knife. Donna’s art stirs the visual and tactile senses.
Donna, a native Texan, began her artistic training in Europe. She has worked in ceramics, painted in multiple mediums and surfaces, and taught painting before starting her journey in kiln formed glass over 10 years ago after spending time in the Northwest. Since then, she has developed her unique artistic style of imagery in glass which is both amazing and breathtaking. She was recognized for her talent as the1st place winner of the 2010 Delphi Art Glass Festival. Donna’s dimensional glass art is found in public and private collections and select galleries across the country.
