I recently returned from Toledo, OH where I was attending the annual GAS (Glass Arts Society) Conference. This was my first year going and it was a really eye opening experience. There was so many great lectures and demonstrations, below is a link to my photobucket album:
This year was the 50th anniversary of the studio glass movement in America. It was started by Harvey Littleton and Dominick Labino in Toledo, when they held the first studio hot glass class ever. Many of the first students including Fritz Dreisbach and Marvin Lipofsky, who went out to teach their own classes were at the conference this year. Because I was with Randy Strong, who has been doing glass for 44 years, I really benefited by being able to meet a lot of the Old Timers from the glass movement.
If you are involved in glass or would like to be, this is definitely an event you don’t want to miss!
These are a few of my favorite shots:
