Check out this amazing glass table made using a 1987 Volvo 240 crankshaft!  Sean Corron, the designer and artist, stripped down the old car and saved some of the parts to use on repairs of his own Volvo; sold other parts; and decided to refabricate some of the parts that were no longer useful in cars, like this crankshaft, to create something brand new!!  We think this is awesome!!

Sean told us he decided to use The Original Super Glue Glass Adhesive because it would be the best adhesive for this job, “I was searching for the perfect adhesive to complete a project which required a strong bond between glass and metal. Silicone and other air-cure adhesives would dry much too slowly (if ever) and 2-part epoxy has let me down in the past when applied to a smooth surface like glass. Your UV cure glass adhesive was the perfect solution, and my table is holding up well.”

You can check out all of the details on how Sean created this table, and see more pictures, by going directly to his website The Artificer’s Repository.  Thanks for telling us your story, Sean!  We are impressed with your ingenuity and super proud that our product helped you accomplish your creative goal!

Assemblage Art

We learn so many things from our customers.  Assemblage Artist, Ashley Jones, wrote in to tell us about how she uses super glue products:

“I use Super Glue to create and hold together fun, orginal, and unique assemblage art pieces.  I use 100’s of tubes of The Original Super Glue(R) to hold together my assemblage pieces.”

Assemblage Art is a process involving putting together found objects in a 3D artistic composition.  This collage type artistic form of expression began in the 1930’s, but really came to the forefront in 1961 when, according to Wikipedia, “The Art of Assemblage” exhibition was held at the New York Museum of Modern Art.  The exhibit featured the Assemblage Art work of legendary artists like Jean Dubuffet, Marcel Duchamp, and Pablo Picasso.

Assemblage Art is an excellent example of reusing, renewing, and recycling to make something brand new!  Terrific story, Ashley!  Thanks for sharing your talent with us!
