Just discovered Bullseye Projects and had to post about it. To many times large companies just lose sight of what they are about and the influence, for the better, that they can have on our younger generation.
I have to applaud Bullseye for this initiative. Watching it gave me goosebumps. Such an opportunity for our youngsters and fantastic to see the arts supported like this.
Here in Australia I have difficulty just getting Bullseye glass and have always been envious of the opportunities in the US. This just makes me even more envious.
If only we could have something like this here in Australia. If anyone from Bullseye reads this and would like to talk to me about starting something similar here I am all ears.
If you are interested in art glass and how it is made you will love this old video about the process at Bullseye Glass, way back in 1970. I was entranced by the way they throw around molten glass, almost without care, though I am sure they took plenty of care to avoid injury.
You will see footage of Ray Alhgren, Boyce Lundstrom, Daniel Schwoerer, Ruth Brockman, Dave Kohler and others.
