Fused Glass from Tropics of Costa Rica

Wakeup Call

fuse glass art playa smara costa ricaIf you work in an earthquake prone region, as I do here in Costa Rica, have you properly secured your glass art?  What about the shops where you market your work?  I lost three pieces of fused glass art at the Dragonfly Art Gallery in the 7.6 mag. earthquake of Sept. 5 here in Playa Samara, Costa Rica.  Three out of 16 is not bad, I suppose.  But with nearly daily aftershocks since then, I’m wondering if it will all eventually return to the sand from which it came?  I’d better “batten down the hatches”.

What’s the best way to secure glass work?  Wax, museum gel, chewing gum?
