Today we went to work on the furnace. First, thanks to Cia Friedrich and Patrick Morrissey for all their help and expertise. Patrick and I started by evaluating the the inside of the furnace. Whenever we shut down the furnace, it is an opportunity to investigate any weak areas, holes, cracks, or deterioration, even though… Read More Furnace is Back On!
Starting Tuesday, March 1, I will be back in the shop to blow some glass! I’ll be working in the hot shop every morning until 1 or 2 pm. On Thursday I plan on making more Aurora Sculptures. It will take most of the day, so anyone interested can come by Liquid Light Glass to… Read More Getting back to what I do best…
Jannine and I arrived home safely tonight. It’s good to be back! We stayed up late last night, thinking we could sleep-in, but when we woke up to 6″ of snow, we had to get to the airport early in case of delays. We caught an early shuttle without having had breakfast yet. Everything turned… Read More Good to Be Home
21 February: The final day of the show was uneventful for us, but one poor soul had his booth collapse! Most of his glass fell and broke when someone from a surrounding booth pulled on one of their poles holding up their booth and the it had a domino effect. We were all freaked out… Read More Last Day of Show
Yesterday the convention center had another ‘gate crasher’, a Vietnamese ‘buyer’ without a badge- right in front of Wendy Rosen! He got ‘escorted’ out by the staff before he could even get in. We never saw him only heard about the incident from her. Friday was super busy, Saturday moderately busy, but I think I… Read More BMAC, Day 2-3
Thursday February 17: Today we worked from 11am-4 pm (that’s 9 am Santa Fe time). Tomorrow we will have to get up early 7 am (5 am our time) to finish cleaning the glass pieces.

Wednesday, February 16: Today was a long day- 11:30 am- 7:30 pm with no lunch break. We got the booth ready to set up glass art for tomorrow.

Well, we finally arrived in Philly at the hotel at 12:15 am last night after being rerouted to St Louis as we mentioned yesterday. The flight was uneventful-just long. We are already tired! About 7 hours flying time. This morning we will get a bite to eat over at Reading Market across the street from… Read More Arrived in Philly-finally!
15 February 2011: Got to the airport, via John Marks 🙂 only to find out our flights had changed due to a problem with our connection in Houston. So here we sit, waiting 3 more hours before we board the first plane. Now we go through St Louis, and arrive in Philly around 11:30 pm.… Read More First Day of Travel
On Monday, I charged the furnace with more glass again. Today, Cia blew glass in the morning, then Jannine, Cia and I made some sculptural martini goblets in the afternoon. John Marks even brought a few bits too. It was fun and energetic! Goblets are technically challenging, and have endless potential sculpturally. I’ll try to… Read More Blowing Glass Again

Over the weekend I finished my latest free-standing glass and metal sculpture with my metal smith, Caleb Smith. It is from my Aurora Sculpture Series. Just shy of 5 feet tall, the long glass piece swivels so you can see both sides, and the small disc underneath swivels horizontally. Caleb has been working with me… Read More My Newest Tall Sculpture!
