Welcome to A Hot Piece of Glass!

WELCOME to my colorful corner of the world! I write here about the things I make, in glass, fiber, metals, and whatever else I can find to play with!

Getting Out of Town!

It's Monday, and I realize I have two full days to get all my stuff ready before I leave on a road trip up to New York state! Yikes! I should probably pack a few things in a suitcase, huh? (or a 'soupcase' as my 3 year old son calls it...)

My friend Kitty and I are headed up to Corning, New York, to visit the Glass Museum and take in a few lectures on medieval glass and it's historical context. This is very excited for us, as we are both big fans of the medieval period of history, and we are both glass artists. Her medium is more kiln-fired glass, stained and leaded glass, with a little bit of flameworking thrown in. While we're up there, we're going to do a little glassblowing (YAY!), a little shopping and sightseeing, and a trip up to my alma mater, SUNY-Geneseo, and to my hometown, Rochester.

I'm looking forward to immersing myself in nostalgia, learning some things about glass, visiting family and friends, and just generally having a good time in a place I love. I'll definitely be coming home with tons of pictures, and I'll share when I get back.

Right now, I've got to get the family up and moving on this fine Columbus Day Monday. If you don't hear from me before I go, enjoy your week, and I'll talk to you all when I get back!

Oh yeah....how do you like the new blog header?

What a fun trip!! I wish I could go and hang out with you :) I love anything medieval and anything with shiny, pretty glass!!

Trips like this are a must in life. We need to absorb new things, spread our views and soak up the time doing something we love. I have a road trip planned next month to San Francisco and I cannot wait! Looking forward to hearing and seeing your adventure, O' Creative One!!!
