Piece #1 - Glow Float

Ok, my first piece of glass is away. Yesterday afternoon we launched a Glass Float/ornament into the Gulf of Mexico. This is the first official piece to be used for the "I Found This Glass" website. We hope whoever finds it will visit and leave a comment.

This piece was thrown out in the gulf around 5pm on an amazing Saturday afternoon. It might make it 10 feet down the beach or it might find its way to the next parking lot. Either way it seems to be sea worthy as it floated away.

I eventually hope to have other artists blog here about their own pieces. I also need to figure out a better way to number the pieces. It will be interesting to try and track them - who found them and where.

For now I will give a little history into the piece I just sent out to sea.

Glow Ball: Piece #1

Artist: Scott Novota

Created: April 13th, 2006 as an experimental piece of glow glass. The piece doesn't glow quite as bright as I though it would, but if you leave it out in the sun or under a light and then take it somewhere dark it does indeed glow.

This is the first in a group of glowing paperweights, floats, ornaments, and other stuff that I will be placing around Pensacola to have some fun with. If you happen to have found this please take the time to let us know where you found it, when you found it, and what you think about the piece.

This should be fun.

hey Brother of another mother,

I was thinking of doing this also, do you mind if I make some and send them to you for post? Was thinking maybe glow paperweights or ornaments and placing them in San Fran somewhere! Or somewhere on the grape vine in napa or sanoma. The glow works well when you charge it with a black light too just to let you know.

Gnat, we could build a google map mash up on my site to track them!

You know, I was thinking... if this ornament rolls around in the sand for too long before someone finds it, maybe the website will get buffed off by the sand.
