Women in the Visual Arts

    We are so excited to announce that we are currently showcasing the work of Eileen Feldman, our 2014 Glass as Art contest Best in Show winner, here in our showroom. Her pieces are gorgeous, one-of-a-kind, highly detailed, and mixed media- that are also for sale!

"As a mosaic artist, I love to use sheets of glass and manipulate them into beautiful art. Cutting and placing the glass on a cement board allows artist's to use the project as an interior or exterior art. Smalti is a dense glass with intense color that is also used with stone, small virtuous glass, and shards. All this makes for unique glorious art."- Eileen Feldman


    Eileen also works in jewelry design and has an amazing eye for detail. Her work has been published in many books and publications, including this recent article in the Sun Sentinel:

 There are several pieces to view and purchase in our gallery, so stop by McMow today and view these wonderful hand crafted works of art!

Advice for Cutting Glass

Here are a few great helpful tips to always keep in mind when cutting glass:

* Always cut on the smoothest side of the glass

* Score from edge to edge.

* Make sure the cutter has cutting oil in it at all times, however it is not nessesary to fill the entire cutter with oil.

* Try to purchase more than enough glass incase mistakes and breaks happen.

* When cutting deep inside curves, make a series of scores and slowly bite and groze your way to the desired curve. Also when doing difficult cut's we recommend using your free hand thumb against the wheel to help guide the cutter for more control. - Try to cut the deep inside curves and difficult curves first.
