Check out this article on architectural glass. Great reading as Ken and I weld up some glass and steel, sculptural pieces this week. Sparkling, beautiful and enduring.
As Unbreakable as ... Glass?
Sally Ryan for The New York Times
A CLEAR VIEW A project lets visitors see all angles from the 103rd floor of the Sears Tower in Chicago. Builders are experimenting with new materials and methods to expand the use of glass in construction.
Kenneth Perrin and Linda Chruscielski-Perrin met in San Francisco, CA. They met in a class at the SF City College. Ken wore a maroon sweater and there was a small earthquake when their eyes met, “there you are”, she thought. He smiled. They would go on to cheer each other in all manner of creative pursuits. Finally leading to a life in a hot-shop, on the coast of Maine. A place they own and created from blowing bubbles. A studio/school and gallery they call Atlantic Art Glass.
