Welcome Glass Fusers!
I am spending my retirement developing glass art projects and producing step-by-step videos so that you can make them, too. I provide patterns, color suggestions, firing instructions and any other resources that will help you succeed, plus tips & tricks to hone your skills. (see the complete video directory at Glasshoppa.com).

My goal is to reduce the time you spend in trial & error and reduce the inevitable frustration when things go wrong. 

Patreon is a place where I can host this content and make it available exclusively to fusers who find it valuable.

How it Works:

-- Look for the "Become a Patron" section on this page. There you can pledge a small amount of money for each new project that I develop and pass along to you on video.
-- Your pledge earns you unlimited access to all Glasshoppa Patron-only content, which resides here on this Patreon page. (note the LOAD MORE link at the bottom of the page)
-- Whenever I publish a NEW video project, your card will be charged the pledge amount, on the first of the following month.
-- I have been publishing about eight-nine times per year.
-- When you sign up, you’ll have the opportunity to set a monthly limit on your support so there’s no risk of spending more than you intend.

I will reward your generosity with unique and exclusive benefits. Besides keeping this program going, your support will make it possible for me to:

- Provide free fusing technical support and troubleshooting by email when you need it
- Develop techniques and special effects to pass along to you
- Offer skills tutorials
- Add no-charge “quickie” tutorials
- And much more …

Hopefully, you’ll think it’s worth supporting. I’ll make the mistakes so you don't have to. You’ll waste less glass and suffer fewer disappointments. 

I will truly appreciate anything you're able to do.

With gratitude,
Jim Matthews (your friendly neighborhood Glasshoppa)
