PostPosted: Nov 14, 2016 08:03    Post subject: Artisan Made Gems  

This year, at the East Coast Show, I had the pleasure to view work by a local glass artist, mineral collector and friend, Jeremy Sinkus. Although this is mineral related in as much as the glass is a borosilcate, these are man made pieces. I found them fascinating and useful. Artisan made tourmaline shaped shot glasses and wine glasses adorned with "tourmaline" slices being the most useful. I have several. Hope you find this interesting. Please excuse the image quality.

Shot glass, is my only answer. Be a shame to grind out gem tourmaline for shot glasses. Unless it was a particularly good single malt, single cask.

A bit more information on Jeremy in the Susan Robinson feature on mineral art and artists in Rocks & Minerals, Nov/Dec 2017 issue. Susan's profiles are always interesting, as are Jeremy's creations.
