This video and topic was made with the support of the Pittsburgh Foundation and The Heinz Emdowments through the Advancing Black Arts in Pittsburgh Grant and Residency hosted by the Pittsburgh Glass Center. A portion of this grant was used to purchase the 3D printer and materials used to print the object shown that will help with developing and finsih my sculptures and programming at the Pittsburgh Glass Center.
Thank You for watching, and I'll see you next time!

Hello Lightning Tamers!
I was planning on wait so I can create an entire resource list, but I decided there are resources I shouldn't wait to share just because it'll look nice chronologically. Plus I'll be able to create a category so you can find on the right hand side of the blog, and be able to include them when ever I reference them in future posts.
Basic Vacuum Practice is foundation to your enduring of the component and equipment that go into running a vacuum system, cleaning, and maintenance troubleshooting. It'll also give you healthy understanding and appreciation of the application of vacuum we use in our everyday on top of how it works for your purposes in plasma or neon. Unlike most textbooks or training manuals this was an easy to follow and yet entertaining read. I got lucky and found myself a physical copy, but thanks to Anders Mikkelsen he's found us a free pdf downlaod.
My recommendation READ IT ALL.
