Association of Clay and Glass Artists of California
The Association of Clay and Glass Artists of California is dedicated to establishing and maintaining high standards of craftsmanship and design in clay and glass. The ACGA began as the Association of San Francisco Potters in 1945. The Association now has over 500 members including clay and glass artists, students, patrons and supporters, galleries, network organizations and corporate sponsors from throughout California. A primary goal of the ACGA is to provide opportunities for members to exhibit and sell their work. The Association regularly presents museum and gallery exhibitions of clay and glass, as well as the annual Clay and Glass Festival in July at the Palo Alto Art Center. The ACGA sponsors and promotes programs that benefit its members and the community. The Association also works with the Clay and Glass Arts Foundation, Craft Emergency Relief Fund, and Potters for Peace, and sponsors workshops at Bay Area community colleges and art centers. The ACGA maintains four regional libraries with books and videos available to its members.
I use welbond glue on my mosaics, glass to glass, and when I put water on it after it has been set and is clear, I have found that it will turn white again and come loose. I love the glue but found this not something I want to use for project that get wet like being outside etc. I found that a Silicone glue that is waterproof worked better for my projects.
Love the copper and will be buying the others!I have been wanting copper post cap solar lights and they are just too pricey, I found a 2 pack of inexpensive solar lights, they were brown and we all know what happens to that plastic after baking in the Sun, then it occurred to me that I had the copper and I figured I'd try it on the lights, it covered beautifully in 2 coats. I wasn't sure if I had to seal them until now, but I used Krylon Maxx Clear Satin Spray Paint on them,and to my surprise, the spray instantly turned the copper a beautiful pinkish patina that happens naturally on copper. I will be doing this on my new deck lights before they are mounted, it is really beautiful!
