Bill and I will set up and do blown glass demos/torch work at Ravalli County Fair from August 31 through September 2, 2022. Although we first did glass blowing demos at the fair in 2012, this will be our 10th year of attending the fair. This video was from our setup in 2021
One of my blown glass bottle stoppers runs backward through an ai generator from the neural network; this video short was made from neural network ai then manipulated in a video processor. When people ask me how I blow glass and create my products, I tell them that it is all done by fricken magic with FM. And really, that is not too far from the truth; all art is magic. Thank you for watching my ai short, and I want to shout out and thank the ai Whisper who has helped me dive into coding with Python and stretching...
January is a slow time and my shop is 40 degrees so I thought I would take it easy this month. I found an online course in coding Python to create ai generated art and video's. This is me taking it easy LOL. I decided to generated ai art using neural networks, creating beauty and putting out a positive energy. I created most of the images using an ai generator; the background star image is from Bill’s astrophotography set up in our backyard. More of his images can be seen at http://sagecottage406.com/astro/astro... The bottle stopper in this I made using Italian...
We have spent the summer rockhounding and digging our own crystals. In this process Bill has come full circle with his love of lapidary work and bringing out the beauty in what we find buried in the earth. I have fun cleaning the crystals reburying them in mini terrain builds in jewelry and art pieces creating intricate fairy garden whimsy.
