Last Friday, August 13th, Elodie, Jannine and Cia worked in the shop with friend and fellow glassblower, Julie Conway who was in town from Omaha , Nebraska. Julie is the owner and designer of Illuminata, a glass design studio creating functional and sculptural glass art works. Julie worked for Elodie from 2000-2003 assisting in the hot shop, polishing the work, and helped Elodie establish the Baca Street Art District. She was in town for a friend’s wedding and squeezed in a glass commission. Here are some pictures of us creating one of Julie’s giant glass lamp shades with her.
