The Hurricane Platter – A Decade Later
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 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.

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.
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
