Association of Stained Glass Lamp Artists
The Association of Stained Glass Lamp Artists is a non-profit organization registered in the state of Washington. Its purpose is to perpetuate, improve, and promote the art and craft of stained glass lamp construction. The Association was born in the mind of Carol Conti. As a teacher of the craft of stained glass, she discovered in her students a desire to go beyond glass crafting to actual "creating" using the medium of glass. She nurtured this desire, and in the process found that the creative intuitions of her compatriots blossomed into masterworks through the sharing and support that is inevitable when like-minded people form an 'association'. With the help and encouragement of good friends, this dream was pursued and The Association of Stained Glass Lamp Artists was formed. The first meeting, in 1991, was attended by 30 lamp artists from Washington State. As of 2012, the ASGLA includes more than 800 member artists from twenty-seven countries and forty-eight states.
I'm not a stencil artist but a silversmith. I have several of the 1" brushes, and they are perfect for sweeping my bench. I use the brushes to sweep the silver and gold filings off my bench, and they do a superb job of cleaning loose metal bits off my projects. I don't like to use any other brushes. I use the smaller ones ( the 1/2" and 3/8") for gently cleaning wax models and jewelry in progress. These brushes have greater control, stiffness and yet pliable bristles that does the job very well. I'm sticking with these brushes for a very long time.
