Overview of the Process
The photos and frames below are all by Tom Gazda. The wood is from lumber I've pulled out of dumpsters in Albany NY. The glass is from old storms windows and yard sale picture frames.
"Washed Away" by Glass Pony Album Cover
Photos for the front cover and back of Glass Pony's 3rd album.
While I didn't build the wooden screenprinting frames below, I did make painted glass whiteboards out of them. The glass is salvaged from old triple-track storm windows; the backing cardboard salvaged from the neighborhood recycling night.
Iron pipe bookends
A neighbor down the block had put few old pipes out on the curb. Always a fan of old pipes, I grabbed the pipes and used one of my favorite tools to end up with CD bookends.

I've always liked the foot pedals guitarist use. I just think controlling something with your feet is cool. And the substantial ker-chunk click of the button is eternally satisfying. So I came up with these footswitches. [video link below]
