During our trip to Philadelphia, the rest of the crew left watching the shop had their own very successful glass art opening reception on Friday, February 18th, titled ‘While the Cats Away’ (me being the feline here…) It was a very catchy name that drew a lot of people to the shop. I was so… Read More While the Cats Away…
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
Yesterday, on our first day, we had an interesting interaction with someone claiming to have a gallery in Scottsdale. They ordered 4 of my biggest pieces, the calcedonia Auroras, without hardly looking at them. Then, they gave me a San Francisco address for delivery even though their name tags said their gallery was in Scottsdale.… Read More BMAC, Day One
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. Ugh— Not used to this time change! We spent our time today hanging the show, placing the work, cleaning mirrors,… Read More The Booth is Ready!
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. It’s amazing how long it takes to create a hidden storage area, square-up the booth (which takes forever!), put down the floor, put up 32 lights, hang… Read More First Day at the Philadelphia Convention Center
We decided to break up the photos today into 2 segments. This first segment is on Reading Market where we like to eat while working at the convention center. It is right across the street. Here is a little tour of a few of the shops and stands before the lunch hour crush of people!… Read More Reading Market
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
Jannine and I fly out Tuesday morning bound for Philadelphia. Wednesday and Thursday are spent setting up the booth. The show starts Friday, and ends on Monday. It’s a long haul, but we’re looking forward to seeing old friends and making new ones. Hopefully sales will be up this year! Stay tuned for a behind… Read More Tomorrow We Leave for Philly
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
Yesterday, the Governor of New Mexico declared a State of Emergency due to natural gas blackouts across our state and Texas. We had just finished a paperweight workshop, that had less participants due to weather related travel changes, when I got a phone call about the natural gas blackouts. The danger for me is if… Read More Frigid Weather Affecting My Business
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!
Here is another photo of my latest batch of Calcedonia, or what I call Mystery Opal glass. Adding copper to the batch makes the colors even more luscious! I love the reds, purples and pinks. Last year I made an Aurora sculpture called ‘Phoenix Wing’. I’ve spent the last year trying to replicate that color… Read More Calcedonia 2011
Here is a preview of some of the new glass pieces that I’ll be bringing to the Buyers Market of American Craft February 18-21. Some of the colors I’ve been making have been turning out so beautiful!

Here is a slideshow of some of my newest work at Liquid Light Glass. I am enjoying opening windows in the Auroras to expose more interior color details and depth.
