Seems like it was only the other day I was set up next to Cleo of Grama Tortoise in Baltimore. She was pregnant and laughing at my choice of snack foods! Here she is with her son, Liam. He looks just like his father... like someone made a copy, shrunk it down, and babified it! Make sure to check out her amazing sculptural lampwork. The details are simply amazing!
Patti Cahill! She was in attendance with her candy-like creations. I am happy to say that I took home a pocketful of her lovely work!
Kristi Brokaw. She makes adorable lampwork glass skulls and birdcages. I was remiss in not getting one of the skulls. I thought, "Oh, I'll just get one at Bead & Button." But I found out later that she won't be attending this year! Shucks!
We didn't get an opportunity to shoot as we had to drive home that night, but we did get a chance to get dinner at the Center. I was worried that we missed it! I had been hearing whispers of the menu all day. They served a very tasty meatloaf with cheesy mashed potatoes topped with Amish butter and a salad. Delicious!
I could not have a post about the Soft Glass Invitational without mentioning the supremely awesome Lewis Wilson and Barb Cope Svetlick, and Jennifer Wilson of Soft Flex Company! I also wanted to thank Kim from Fall Hill Bead and Gem for the glittering Herkimer diamond that she and Adam mine!
