I’ll be hard at work for three days at the Museum of Glass this month.  Visitors can watch me make glass panels, works from my “Paloma” series and unique sculptures like this piece!

If you can’t visit Tacoma, tune in to the MOG Hotshop Livestream any day during museum hours! I’ve heard that watching glassblowing is sort of addictive. 🙂
