Olympic Color Rods (http://www.glasscolor.com) has a sale going on right now, and Annette has kindly agreed to help coordinate a group order. This is a good opportunity to get a favorite color or try and expand your color palette.
If you would like to order your own supply of glass, please send Annette an email by this coming Wednesday, February 15th. Be sure to include ‘Glass Order’ in the subject line.
In the email, include the Number, Name, Size, Sale Price/KG, Quantity (in KG), and Total Cost for your choices. For example:
Note that the sale price may not show until you use the Quantity selector. Also, the minimum quantity is a KG, about 2.2 lbs. If you would like less than a KG, send an email to the list indicating the color(s) you want and see if anyone is interested in splitting with you.
In addition to your total cost of glass, you will be responsible for an appropriate portion of the shipping cost, based on your total order weight.
Payment is due at time of pickup. This order will go in by February 20th to get the sale price, so the glass will probably be at the studio late that week or early the next.
Our mission is to create a diverse environment where people from all walks of life can satisfy their curiosity and creativity using glass as the primary medium. Among the people who are served at this studio:

505 Lakeview Avenue, Ann Arbor is off Liberty, 1/4 mile east of Wagner Road. It’s the last house on the right. Street entrance is directly opposite Fendt Building Supply. Rendel’s is at the beginning of the street. Look for signs.
Czech glass artist Michal Zahradnik designed this all-glass steam engine, which he claims is fully operational and can run at 500rpm. Some of his other creations include a model plane and Harley-style motorcycle. Pretty cool!
