Sometimes what you’re looking for is right under your nose. I was chatting to my next-door neighbor, Dave, the other day and he asked me about my David. I explained that David had a glass art show going on in West Virginia, and that he was working on a contract building kilns and fabricating panels for another glass artist.
“So have you ever made glass yourself?” Dave asked.
“No,” I replied “To be honest with you, I’ve always been more interested in working with Plexiglas. I have several ideas about how I could use it, if only I knew how.”
At this point Dave started grinning.
“I know, I know,” I said sheepishly. “It sounds kind of cheesy being attracted by plastic rather than glass.”
“Oh, I get your fascination with it all right,” laughed Dave. Turns out he has a Plexiglas fabrication and vacuum forming company. He’s worked with artists before and says he will teach me anything I want to know.
