Gil Reynolds from Fusion Headquarters in Newberg, Oregon, brought his team of Jenna, Alisson and Eliza to CCAC to develop glass molds for casting Mount Hood models. Betsy Valian, CCAC Board Member, joined the team for the weekend and they now have the beginning of the final product that CCAC hopes to sell soon. Casting in different refractory molds, using colored billet glass donated by glass artist Walter Gordinier, of Walter Gordinier Studio of Portland, Oregon. Some pate De Verre techniques as well as colored frits were used.
A big thank you Gil, Eliza, Jenna, Alisson and Walter for your support of the CCAC project!
