Some of the most beautiful art in the world is found in works of glass
Lakewood, OH (PRWEB) September 29, 2009
Gerald (Jerry) Smith says, "Some of the most beautiful art in the world is found in works of glass". Jerry says his aim is to show this beauty to as many people as possible in the space and time he has available on http://www.craftingglass.com. So to help spread the knowledge and appreciation of glass art he is enhancing the Crafting Glass web site by adding a feature article each month about a special glass artist: "A glass artist of the month". The artists chosen will each work in one or more of the following categories: Glass blowing, fused glass, stained glass, etched (or carved) glass, dichroic glass, and glass beads. Jerry has several recognized artists in mind for the first few articles. He is asking that any artist interested in appearing on the web site contact him and be willing to make available to the web site articles or videos they have made. New artists in the glass arts are also welcome to apply for inclusion.
Crafting Glass first appeared on the web in July of 1998, so Jerry celebrated his first full year of internet success in August. Views of the site are increasing each month and are expected to reach over three thousand unique individual visitors per month soon. The web site also gives a viewer a glass glossary (or index of glass terms) a resource more complete than usually found on other glass related websites (see http://www.craftingglass.com/category/glossary). Although they don't fit in the field of "art glass", ordinary glass windows (buying, installation, and repair/maintenance) are often covered on Crafting Glass as well as the decorative glass objects. One unique feature of http://www.craftingglass.com is the purposeful lack of advertising on the site. Although there may be some limited advertising here in the future Jerry chose to avoid advertising and "spam" while building the web pages.
Jerry invites everyone who loves beautiful glass in all its many and varied forms to come and visit soon. He says "constructive suggestions and comments are welcome", "visit soon and often".
