As we continue to build out the Norwich glass area, our pilot neon class is starting to reveal merit from the pomp and toils of setting up a new area space. A special thanks to Rosie and Jake for their continued contribution in building the neon area.
Pictured are 2 paperclips created by member Robert S. These were constructed from 10mm tubing. The red is filled with Neon gas, and the blue is a mixture of Argon and Mercury. The next step in the process is to build a support structure/enclosure to mount the paperclips. Robert intends to utilize his skills in the woodshop area to create a wood base support structure for the paperclip sculpture.
A great example of members utilizing multiple areas and disciplines to accomplish their project goals :)
The “Neon Crew” congregates on Wednesdays from ~4:30-7:00pm, stop by and learn more.
