As we turn the page on a year that will never be forgotten, we want to thank everyone for your continued support.  In the face of adversity, the glass community came together to show how strong we can be.  We all played a roll.  We all made a difference. And we should all be proud to be part of such a resilient industry. 

 While things in the glass world have settled a bit, there are still some moving parts in the works.  Kudos to Bullseye Glass for implementing a state of the art filtration system in a short amount of time.  Not only was this accomplished within a short amount of time, it was done so under extreme outside pressure that would test anyone's limits. Except for a few colors, production is almost back to 100% and new colors are being created all the time.  Oceanside Glasstile is in the process of setting up equipment to produce System 96 glass.  They are working with some of the System 96 team to ensure a smooth transition.  Production is anticipated to begin early to mid 2017. This is also very exciting news. 

 In the mean time, lets continue to learn and grow as glass artists.  This years project at AAE Glass was implementing the Education Center...And a project it was!  If you haven't yet, take a few moments to poke around.  Tanya has some videos and trailers that will help explain how to enjoy the Education Center and use those Education Coins. 

We grow as you grow.  Without your continued support, we couldn't offer the unique products we do.  Without your continued support, Tanya couldn't devote the time she does to creating new video tutorials and workshops to share her techniques with you.  We have met many new customers this year and have watched many past ones grow. So as you grew in 2016, we grew as well.  We will again be growing in 2017 and look forward to growing with you. 

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all of the glass lovers out there.

 The AAE Glass Team
