Thom Maltbie Glass Art Studio Presentation

  1. 1. High Desert #2 A shallow bowl of fused glass, created in 2007 after a trip to Santa Fe, New Mexico. Opaque white and turquoise glass was cut and arranged on a circle of black glass, then fired to about 1400 degrees. The fused disk was then slumped into a mold in a second firing at about 1200 degrees to form the bowl. High Desert #2 is 10 thom maltbie inches in diameter

  3. 3. With the support of a generous fellowship from the Lilly Endowment in 2006, I created and installed several glass art works at South Ripley Elementary School in Versailles, Indiana. This piece includes the handprints of 132 Kindergarten students etched onto glass, with a border of etched quotes from various historical and literary sources.
  4. 4. Another of the Lilly Fellowship art works involved 220 three-inch fused glass tiles made by Third and Fourth Grade students at South Ripley. Students actively participated in making the tiles, then planned the arrangement in the murals. The tiles were fired at approximately 1400 degrees to fused the opaque colored glass.
  5. 5. The First Grade students at South Ripley hatch and release Monarch butterflies every year as a Science project. The striking form and the beautiful green color of the chrysalis was the inspiration for these wall-hanging glass and wood pieces. A clay mold of an oversized chrysalis was created and the mint green glass was slumped into it in a 1200-degree kiln.
  6. 6. As a result of continuing study in sandblasting equipment and techniques, Maltbie Glass Art is developing several lines of glass objects that are etched and carved with air- propelled silicon carbide in a blast cabinet. All design work is original and the art works vary in function. Custom glassware for special occasions and glass awards are also available.
