We are highlighting our artisan of the month!
Ferenc J. Albert-was born in Hungary in 1931 where he was chosen to receive his education in scientific glassblowing at the Budepest Institute of Technology and he worked at the University until 1956 when he left to come to the USA. He became head of the glassblowing lab at IBM with 18 people working under him. Collectors crave the ability to be able to match antique glass patterns in miniature form. He is a fellow in IGMA and designed the glass parts for Phyllis Tucker, Bruce Phillips, and Scott Hughes for their Chandeliers. He also collaborated with Pete Acquisto and his glassware is made to fit absolutely perfectly in the cast frames that Pete makes. He has worked with lots of artist and I personally love him as a supplier to my shop. Next month we will be having 10% off sale on Ferenc's work. I am awaiting some very nice pieces to arrive from him so be watching!
Remember the old internet? The encyclopedia! Here is a red set like I had as a child!
Go on and make that dollhouse you always wanted!
COMING May the 2nd: WIRING CLASS WITH CARL SAHLBERG
A different approach to: "The Techniques of Wiring a Dollhouse"
Adding electricity or the lighting of a dollhouse adds a whole new dimension to your project. Lighting enhances all the details of your work and allows everyone to see what is actually inside each and every room. Wiring your project should be fun and not something to fear.
Bring your dollhouse to Life---LIGHT IT!
This class is open to anyone wanting help in wiring and electrifying their project. All materials and supplies will be provided. You will leave with a number of handouts, a wiring booklet, and several surprises. This class will have a number of demonstrations and a few hands-on projects. I spend less time in teaching electricity and more time in the practicial, physical, and logistics in wiring the dollhouse. This class will be full of tricks and tips on how to conceal and hide the running of the wires: whether one uses flat tapewire or round wire.
Instructor: Carl R. Sahlberg
Company: Creative Reproductions 2 Scale
Time: 9:00am to 4:00pm
