Spectrum Glass Company, with a very heavy heart, has announced that it began the process of closing its operations in May 2016 due to hard business and economic realities. Craig Barker, CEO of Spectrum, shared that the company has served the specialty glass industry for 40 years and that market factors have played the most significant role. “Our facility was built to support product at the height of the art glass movement, but our sales never fully recovered following the Great Recession. Our consistently reduced levels of sales simply cannot cover the fixed costs required to operate a facility of our size. We would like to express our deepest gratitude to all of our partners, customers, artists, and other who have supported Spectrum Glass over the past four decades and who continue to support us now.

Kaiser Lee LLC has just added a full line of Wissmach Glass Cullet. Cullet is generated when pieces of sheet glass need to be cut to size in order to box it for distribution. The edge “cut-offs” are thrown into a barrel, thus breaking the glass into smaller pieces. Some of the cullet is used as an ingredient in the new mixture for the next furnace load. There is more cullet left, however, than Wissmach can use for the glassmaking process. Since the cullet comes from already tested fusing glass, it provides an affordable way for glass artists to obtain perfect compatible glass for castings, pot melts, vitrigraph stringers, frit making, and many other applications. The cullet is available in all of Wissmach’s 90 and 96 COE colors and comes in convenient five-pound containers.

Whittemore-Durgin Glass Company is celebrating 50 years of providing stained glass supplies for glass hobbyists and artisans. The company began in 1965 when an art student came in to the old plate glass company in Quincy, Massachusetts, looking for colored glass for an art project. With that small transaction, the company began to fill the void for amateur glass hobbyists, providing not only supplies but also hard-to-make kits, original patterns for lampshades, windows and suncatchers, and innovative tools, materials, and instructional books. The company quickly expanded to its current 13,000-square-foot location in Rockland, Massachusetts. Operating from the same building since 1971, this family owned company has managed to maintain the look and feel of an old-fashioned hardware store while completely modernizing behind the scenes with an advanced computer system and a comprehensive e-commerce website. The store is unique, unconventional, and fun to browse, and offers visitors a way to step back in time.  800‑262‑1790   This email address is being protected from spambots.

Diamond Tech presents the Powder Vibe, a vibrating pen that assists glass artists in their pursuit to paint and draw on glass. Much of Powder Vibe’s magic and success comes from the directness of the tops and the sleek body, and was introduced by Bearfoot Tools in 2008.

Simply apply pressure to the touch strip located in the side of the Vibe barrel to activate the vibrations, which release glass frit, powder, or enamels through a tiny opening on the tip. Quickly tap on the touch strip to dispense the content in the shape of dots and hold the touch strip down to form long strokes, lines, and curves. The Vibe comes with one standard tip, and additional tips and storage systems are available. 800‑937‑9593   813‑806‑2923 www.diamondtechcrafts.com

Artists can now create a dramatic footed vase using this three-piece drop-thru mold forming system that automatically aligns the drop to the center of a wineglass-style foot. The mold enables fusers to create a delicate vase shape in a kiln that is remarkably similar to vessels made using traditional glassblowing techniques. The system is formed from three components. The C100 Foot Casting Mold is used to create a 2‑7/8"‑diameter x 1/4"‑thick cast glass foot using small pieces of scrap glass. The DT300 Tripod Base supports the Drop-Thru Ring as it holds and centers the cast foot disk. The DT305 Fluted Drop-Thru Ring shapes the vase and guides the drop onto the cast foot disk. Turning the ring one-third revolution will position it at one of three different levels to produce three distinctly different vase heights.
