First of all, Rochester was a wonderful city. Patty and I got to see some of the cute shops and bistros in the SUNY section of town. Lively and lots to offer. But the real attraction, for me, was meeting all the wonderful glass beaders and seeing their fantastic work. Such extraordinary talent! It's hard not to be around all of them and not catch the bug! And I did get to try my hand at making a bead or two at the open torch sessions in the evening, thanks to Marcy Lamberson from Atlanta, and my partner in crime, Patty.
Another highlight was taking the gallery tour and getting to see our piece that we made for the Convergence exhibit. The piece is actually touring with the exhibit for about a year before we'll catch up with it again, so this was a treat.
Here's a close up of the piece -
The Bone Goddess
I'll add some more of the highlights in another post! It was such an enjoyable experience - my first time at the ISGB - and I took tons of pictures I want to show off!
