Hurricane Platter 10th Anniversary

The Hurricane Platter – A Decade Later

The tenth anniversary of Hurricane Katrina has come, and with it the anniversary of the Pearl River Glass hurricane platter.
The artistic representation of a hurricane, captured in glass, is a reflection of the resilience of all coastal residents who have experienced these devastating and powerful storms. The platters are a depiction of hurricanes and all the people they have affected, and their countless stories.
Our platters, each uniquely hand crafted, make beautiful commemorative gifts.

Let Your Light So Shine

 

This is an oldie but goodie. In my search for videos about the studio I remember this one done by Videographer Greg Gibson. Greg is a member of First United Methodist Church in Clinton, Mississippi. He walked through the entire process from design to installation on one of their windows. From that stand point it is pretty interesting. Besides, it was filmed before my hair turned grey! It is 14 minutes long………~ Andy Young

Paying Attention

Paying Attention 03312015
Paying attention is an important thing to do. Especially if you live where I do. In the spring time there is a moment when all of the trees begin to leaf out. Each species of tree has its own signature color of leaf buds in the early part of spring. If you pay attention you can see that the trees along your path are as varied as a crowd of people. You will notice that they stand out individually, if you take the time to see them.READ MORE

Broadcast Television News Tonight

Pearl River Glass Studio will be featured tonight on the television news program ‘Making Money with Charles Payne’, which airs on Fox Business Network on your cable provider. The segment will air today, around 5:55 Central Time. There will also be an article about the studio that will be posted later tonight. As soon as the article is up I will post a link. I suspect that at some point I can share a link the news broadcast segment as well.

I Like to Call it Glassy

This sample was just made in our kiln formed glass studio by Amelia Key and Joy Abedikichi.  An expression I use, and think about, is that it looks “Glassy.”  This means a sense of transparency, bright shimmer, wet fluid quality, an optical quality like a lens that changes as you move to look at it, a material that gathers light and at the same time reflects dark shadow.  Glass is an incredibly beautiful material.  The challenge aesthetically is to not let the glassyness overpower the aesthetic message.  When the two work in unison, aesthetic and the glassy quality then you getting somewhere worth going to. ~ Andy Young
