Neon Lab Update
The first test is a positive pressure test, where you fill the line with a little gas (unlike in the photo, where I filled too much), then spraying soapy water on any all the connections, is there any leaks the gas will push out creating bubbles. Depending on one’s luck and skill, this can be a short fix or time sucking task, and I pray for the former!
Next Guest: Harriet "Harry" Swarzrock
Our next guest after Mundy Hepburn is Harriet Swarzrock. She’s a glass artist who works organically in her previous works, and through her recent residency took a full dive into plasma neon. I followed her work throughout her residency up until the finale, and just had to bring her onto the podcast.
Having a 13 Hour difference in your Time Zone made scheduling a challenge, and I was able to adopt a scheduling app to help make scheduling painless with Acuity Scheduling, Thanks Jason Michael of Wyzguy Radio for his podcast Top 5-Favorite Productivity Apps for 2017. I just send my guests a link to the scheduler, and they can chose to meet and greet or dive right into the the podcast!
Hope you enjoy the Weekly⚡ Picks!
