What do Jackson Pollock and Mel Howse have in common?

Today I stumbled upon this film of Jackson Pollock painting on glass from the 1950's. Some of his tools look remarkably like the metal screens promoted by Bullseye for "painting with light" using glass frits.

My friend Mel Howse laid pasta and dried beans on glass before spraying it with silver stain in her large commission for Sainsbury's Supermarket CMK which I saw her fabricating at Derix Glasstudios.
