Northstar Glassworks has awarded glass grants to ten students of the John Burton Program. Northstar makes borosilicate glass in various forms including rods, frits (small chips in varying sizes), and powders. I use Northstar glass for most of my work.
Paul Stankard is the founder of the John Burton Program, an online self-study educational program for flameworkers.
I am fortunate to be a student in Paul Stankard’s seminar and one of the Northstar grant recipients. Each grantee will receive $250 worth of Northstar glass. I have ordered $250 worth of Blue Thunder rod. Blue Thunder is a beautiful blue with streaks of brown.
My plan is to make a large Blue Thunder cyclone with fruits and leaves spinning out of it. I’ll post photos as I progress.
Thank you Northstar and Paul Stankard!!
