Happy Birthday Tanya Veit

The AAE Glass Family would like to wish Tanya Veit a very happy birthday!  
May this be the best year yet!
We believe it will be!  
   Why do we believe it will be the best year yet?  We just watched the final cut of Tanya's first instructional DVD and were blown away.  A very special thank you to producer, Marcie Davis for capturing Tanya's unique teaching style and techniques on Extreme Fused Glass Jewelry, Volume One.
I feel safe in saying this will be like no other glass fusing DVD you have ever seen.
   This DVD contains over one hour of instruction from the fused glass artist everyone is talking about.  Tanya has been generously offering fused glass instruction for the past few years both at the AAE Glass Art Studio in Cape Coral, Florida and abroad.  Now she wants to come into your home!
   Be sure to LIKE the AAE Glass Art Studio facebook page to be notified first of the DVD's public release.

   So Tanya, even though you are across the pond sharing your knowledge and enthusiasm at the moment, we send our love and best wishes for a very happy birthday and a Beatles-like return to the The States.  

Your fans are waiting!  Cheers!

Mark, Molly, John, Belinda, Lois, Kylie, Sully & Layla

Classy Creations Glass Launches New Website

Mike and Gwen Hertz of Classy Creations Glass have launched a new website to showcase their glass art jewelry.  Classy Creations offers a wide variety of glass jewelry for glass lovers of every kind. The Hertz's have been AAE Glass supporters for a long time and we are happy to see them moving forward with their successful business.  They incorporate several techniques and by doing this, they create very unique, wearable glass art. Be sure to see their work at Classy Creations Glass and read more about the Hertz's below.  Mike and Gwen would also like to invite you to attend an artist reception at Gallery East Art Center to see their newest creations.  September 13th from 5-7pm.  11761 SE US HWY 441 BELLEVIEW FLORIDA (located in the Almeida plaza).

Mike and Gwen Hertz became interested in fused glass after retiring.  After some classes, the interest soon became a passion.  While Gwen focuses on a wide range of fused glass techniques, Mike has broadened his use of glass to faceted or beveled dichroic glass jewelry. They work together on everything, so this venture is truly a family affair.
Both Gwen and Mike have taken numerous classes to learn more about glass and wire sculpture. They show their artwork in several art galleries and boutique stores, in addition to this website.
Gwen has found that every time she wears one of their creations, she gets lots of compliments -  and you can too.
All of our work is guaranteed for workmanship and quality.
