If you plan to enter trays in one or more of the 2013 NCSBS Show awards, please make sure to download the entry form with tray slips here and print it out. Completing the entry form and tray slips before you come to the show will be a big help to the tray check-in volunteers!
How are your button trays coming along?
Jodie’s buttons are made by using an oxygen propane torch and various colored glass rods. They are not painted. She use ancient cane building techniques to create images in glass called murrini. Each image can take days to months to create. The shanks are imbedded into the glass while it is in a molten state to ensure that it becomes a permanent attachment to the piece. No glue is involved.
Jodie’s site is Jodie McDougall Studio and buttons for sale are under the “Shop” tab on the her site.
