I am working for the Corning Museum of Glass on the “Equinox” for Celebrity Cruise Lines. The ship is sailing around the Meditteranean! So far we have been to Greece, Turkey, Naples, Venice. Heading to Florence tomorrow 🙂 we blow glass almost everyday and everyone loves our shows! What a life!

Sharks and Beluga Whales
And the Crab Cups!
Here he is! The Amazing Spider-man, hand sculpted in glass. He is all shiny once again and he has his eyes!!! Hot Shop Party with Austin Littenberg, Ian Schmidt, Ryan Thomas, and Sam Meketon! It did not take a long time to pick him back up and put his eyes on, but it was scary racing him from the warm kiln to the blazing glory hole! But with the help from my good friends, we got him safely back into the box! Yes!!!
Here is a “scale” shot. That is an average piece of paper 8.5″x11″.
…And this will be the final piece! Spider-man vs. Venom! Now it is up to my buddy Dane Turpening to make an epic stand for the two of them so that they can face off!
Dane and I are hoping that when you walk around the piece, the viewer can look through Venom’s mouth, over his tongue, to see Spider-man’s eyes!
Picked him back up in the hot shop at the TMA with my friends: Austin Littenberg, Ian Schmidt, Ryan Thompson, and Sam Meketon! Thanks for the photos Sam!
In the flesh!!! Success! Thank you Sten Neuberg for helping me make the parts and THANKS Austin Littenberg for helping me put him together! I’m really proud of this little guy!
Preheating the parts slowly from room temperature to above 1000 degrees so that they will stick together! Cold glass won’t stick!
