Pros : Incredibly easy to set up and use. Very easy to clean.
Cons : A little messy as water sprays out the side and back. I put a rolled up towel in the "spray zone" and that keeps the mess contained.
Other Thoughts : I started working with glass just over a year ago and did not buy this grinder until about a month ago because I didn't think I needed one. This grinder is phenomenal and has completely changed my game. I'm able to get the pieces, shapes and precision I need in a fraction of the time. I've spoken to many artists who have this very model and quite a few were still using the same one The bought 20-years ago. Very happy with the Glastar!!!

Pros : I have had mine for 30 plus years, and it is still going, ordering another as mine is now a grinder in a friends studio. I have the small ones also for classes and they are still going also. Don't know if the new ones hold up as well, but Glastar is a good choice in my option.
Cons : No one talks about putting grease in the grease zerks in the motor, but it is a good idea. Makes it last longer.

How and when did you get started in glass art? I saw an article about Kristin Frantzen-Orr along with a step by step example of how to do one of her famous floral beads. I talked about it so much my husband bought me a beginning torch set for the following Christmas. Once I got the kiln and the duel fuel torch, I just kept experimenting and growing from there. Kristin is still my idol and I keep telling myself that one day I will do nice, clean floral beads like hers. Your jewelry, vases, plates etc. are all beautiful. I especially love the geologic nature of your Copper Reactive dish, its so unique. Can you tell us a little about how you achieved that look? The base glass is Bullseye Steel Blue Opal (000146) and it reacts all on its own. I used clear stringers and broke up chunks

We tell ourselves not to judge a book by its cover, but the simple truth is, we are attracted to whats attractive. On a recent hunt for a birthday present for my mother, I came across several beautiful handbags in several different boutiques. What ultimately influenced my final purchase decision was the complimentary gift-wrapping offered by one of the storeowners. The handbag itself wasnt any prettier or better quality than the others I was considering, but the packaging was beautiful. Brightly colored tissue, a big sturdy box, quality wrapping paper and an oversized hand-tied bow. No, it wasnt sealed with a kiss, rather a large gold embossed sticker with the boutique name and logo (theres nothing wrong with a little discreet self-promotion). Here are a few tips for better packaging-it might just buy you your next customer. 1. Show your customers what theyll get. The boutique I mentioned earlier had
