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.
My clay was very useful, and I put it to work a lot; however, after a month, you could tell it was drying out. It's as hard as a rock now. I reccomend getting a smaller container to use in a small period of time!
I use these markers for children's illustrations, and they are wonderful. I do wish there were more color options for colors. I've found the light colors too few, especially when working with skin tones These pens last a very long time and work well with all sorts of papers. The tip options make this a great marker for precision coloring.
