  1. Organ Pipes Of Glass

    Yes, thanks for posting the link to the youtube video. This shows the glass flue pipes (American Flag) made completely with art glass and also the reed pipes by Wilhelmy where the resonator is art glass. The video is about 11 minutes long and shows the three ranks in use. I wasn't there when that video was made, but I have heard both instruments in use and they are spectacular. We are putting together a European teaching and consulting tour in fall 2017 to spread the use of glass in pipe organ building to some key companies in Europe. As you can imagine, I'm pretty excited about it. -Carmen

  3. Organ Pipes Of Glass

    Have you seen the photographs of the glass pipe organ pipes made by Xaver Wilhelmy in Virginia, USA? I'll figure out how to upload some photographs. Until I do, you can check out the American Flag Sound Sculpture that he made in response to the events of September 11th, 2001 in New York and Washington D.C.. The pipes are made entirely of glass including the foot, mouth, languid, and tuning device. The photographs at the website are quite detailed. Website: www.flagpipes.com. And of course you'll want to know if I've heard it, Yes I have. And it's amazing. It's currently stored in my storage unit until I find a good home for it. There's more. I hope you all will have some questions. I can't wait to talk about it with people who understand just how amazing it is. =)
