Glass everywhere.

So the classes we took today were great. My poor mom struggled a bit with “picante” stitch (aka peyote), but overall I think our selections were successful. We did a little sight seeing in Tacoma. First we walked over the Bridge of Glass which leads to the Museum of Glass. The brige was rather amazing!

At the museum of glass we watched the guest artist Marvin Lipofsky do a glass blowing demo. It was interesting to watch since he gave more direction than anything else. I think most of his artistic work must come when he cold works the pieces since he cuts them apart quite a bit and sandblasts them to make them into these crazy organic forms. It was fun to watch them make such a large piece, I had not seen one that big made before. A nice bonus of glass mixed into our bead weekend! 😀
