To make the nest, I started by creating the bases with metallic gold and green fusible paint.  I used a candle and then later a blowtorch to heat and bend thin glass “stringer” and layered them on the panel in the form of a nest.” CML

I added frit (crumbled glass) to add texture and depth.  Some of the nests have a couple of other colors of stringer or frit tucked in to represent other materials found by our feathered friends to pad their nests. The nests are tack fused to about 1350 degrees. The eggs are cut and shaped separately and full fused to 1490 degrees.” Carolyn Myers Lindberg

BE OUTSIDE WITH BIRD’S NESTS

NW friends agree to share a recent nesting backstory

I noticed the flowers moving in the hanging flower basket. Sure enough, a junco flew out. I grabbed my copy of Karen Roehm DeWitz’s book, Look at That Bird! (*****), she wrote about how juncos will sometimes make their nests in hanging flower baskets.

I peeked at the nest and found 3 naked birds curled up inside. 

A few days later…

I’m an empty nester already! That was fast.  I suspected something when I hadn’t been hearing or seeing the mom and pop around the nest since yesterday sometime. I wish I had been able to see the fledglings.

FLASH!  I think I found them.  I heard a bunch of “ticking” in a bush across the yard and saw a small brown bird on a branch, streaky breast and no hood yet, and it still had the yellow gape (thanks Karen) and the right kind of beak.  There were two adults hovering nearby so I think that’s my family!

UPDATED UPDATE:  I just saw one of the little babies again on the ground and this time the pop was feeding it. They still need some help from their parents.  –Pat Wollner

Karen Roehm DeWitz to PW:  They’ll be fed by the parents on the ground for a while yet. Enjoy the show!

PW:  Do they go back to the nest at night or sleep in the trees somewhere with the folks?

KRW: Once babies fledge, that’s usually it for the nest. It’s actually a super dangerous place for baby birds (they’re all together, and predators can watch mom and dad coming and going), so it’s best for them to get out ASAP. After that, the parents help them find a safe spot to roost at night. The babies may not be able to fly yet, so keep an eye on pets.

PW: They are actually flying, sort of. I suspect they came out of the nest sometime this morning and I didn’t find them until late this afternoon. They flit around in the low bushes and hop around on the ground. There was a juvenile Cooper’s hawk on the roof of my garage yesterday and usually the crows are all over the place so it is a dangerous place like you said.

Book Review:
This book would make a beautiful gift for someone who loves birds and nature, someone who is just starting out birdwatching or someone who already birdwatches but is interested in birds from the Pacific Northwest.


Although this book is aimed at the younger birdwatcher I think this book would be great for all ages! I certainly enjoyed it!

17-68 vase

A technique known as drop-out which was used to create this hand made vase by carefully managing heat, time and gravity to stretch and shape glass in a kiln. A technique that  was combined with strip-construction to create a dramatically patterned piece in the colors of red, white, blue, black and purple.   Bob Heath, glass artist

9-60b

My primary technique is fused glass, but that covers a broad range. I am mostly known for strip-construction work that features geometric patterns with bright colors, strong lines and sharp contrasts. Very often my intricate designs require the creation of multiple component pieces that are fused separately and then cut, shaped and fused together to create the wholeMy work is typically very colorful and often features geometric patterns with strong lines and sharp contrasts. Edges and rims are cold-worked and polished to give them a professional finish.

“My engineering background expresses itself in my glass artwork, both in terms of design influence and in the precision and attention to detail that I strive for in my glass creations.

I have active part of the Oregon glass community, serving on the board of directors of the Oregon Glass Guild since 2005, and as its state president.

Oregon is home to many glass artists, due in large part to the presence of several of the world’s major manufacturers of raw art glass materials and numerous glass schools.

Bob Heath has had the opportunity to study with many of the leading artists in the field including; Avery Anderson, Patty Gray, Marty Kremer, Richard LaLonde (a cousin of the gallerist), Peter McGrain, Robert Oddy, Stan Price and Raphael Schnepf.

I really enjoy working with the process of fusing glass and like to try and accomplish things beyond the ordinary. My work is carefully planned, starting out as a detailed drawing. I  try out multiple variations on each idea and to think through the steps that I will use to implement the design in glass. The complexity of the design requires that I start by creating multiple individual components that are fused separately, and then cut and shaped before ultimately being fused together to create the whole. After the work is fused, it is cold-worked to achieve a professional finish on the surface and edges that brings out the inherent beauty of the glass.  Bob Heath, glass artist

“Painterly” fused glass platter by Bob Heath

This platter has a black frame which surrounds a color inlay made entirely of various shades of Blue, Green and Black. The color inlay is made in a style that I call Painterly due to the way  the colors randomly flow and merge into one another like brush strokes. On this platter, I took advantage of the fact that Black becomes glossy at a lower temperature than all of the other colors.  By fire polishing at just the right temperature, I was able to maintain a matte surface on the Blues and Greens, while making the black streaks in the inlay and the frame glossy. The difference in the light reflection of the matte versus the glossy surfaces provides another element of contrast in this piece.  The edge of the panel features a beautiful Mint Green racing stripe.–Bob Heath, glass artist
This platter could be used to serve appetizers, Sushi or just as a decorative table centerpiece.

Handmade lazy susan platter by Darcy Martin
Using 1300 degrees in a kiln to fuse and create glass is a beautiful and challenging partnership between the artist and the laws of physics.  Designing projects with structure and color still must face intense heat for up to 16 hours. 

About the artists:

Oregon is home to many glass artists, due in large part to the presence of several of the world’s major manufacturers of raw art glass materials and numerous glass schools.

This has given Bob Heath the opportunity to study with many of the leading artists in the field including; Avery Anderson, Marty Kremer, Richard LaLonde, among others.

Bob has been an active part of the Oregon glass community, serving on the board of directors of the Oregon Glass Guild since 2005, and as its state president.

Glass artist, Carolyn Myers, creates dichroic (pronounced “dye-crow-ick”) glass, two colored multicolored and reflective proprieties. She has lectured about her glass art during the Seaside First Saturday Art Walks at the Fairweather Gallery. Her next appearance is on June 5, 5-7:pm.

“When you look at this glass, it appears to have more than one color at the same time, especially when viewed with different lighting. The effect was originally created with trace amounts of gold and silver in a large glass melt, resulting in glass that only partially reflects light passing through it.”

D’arcy Martin is a NW fused glass artist who has been designing and creating for 20 years.  Born with a restless, creative imagination, he has always ‘dabbled’ in the arts.  Over the decades, nothing kept his interest long enough for it to reign supreme his wife signed him up for a glass fusing class.

A kiln was purchased, other crafts and arts were forsaken, and the glass journey had begun!

Now showing at the Fairweather House and Gallery, May 2021. And, too, his new glass will be featured during the upcoming Fairweather exhibition INTO THE BLUE, June 5-25.
