Gallery Pedastals

Ray Pemberton made these fantastic pedastals for the gallery and shows. They are really beautiful and show the glass off. It looks like I moved again as I snapped the picture.

Getting Ready

Many thanks to Bob for posting up a link to our site and information about our up coming home show. We spent the weekend getting ready. The house is decorated and the glass is out. We have a lot left to do but great progress has been made. Many thanks to Chris McGahan at Bella Forte for letting up borrow his annealher for the weekend too. I think we can fill up all three pretty quickly. Thanks to everyone how has come out to help us get ready too. The support and love does not go unnoticed but I am often neglectful in expressing my gratitude. Thank you all - Zack and Michelle, Angela, Brent's mom, my mom, Aunt Nancy, Aunt Pat, Maggie, Dad.
See you all this weekend.
Keep it Centered.

Another Angle

Fine Art Institute Display

This is our set up for the Fine Arts Institute Show. We had some great work on display and everything looked really grand. We sold a few pieces so hopefully we can afford to keep blowing glass for a while longer.

New Photos

I am posting photos from the new Moto mobile phone to my Mr. Boatman's Room blog. I have chosen this avenue for the photos because not all my images, albeit most of them tho, will be glass related. So be sure to check out the other blog for lots of wonderous pics of hot glass, glassblowing, and completed works of art.
Thanks for watching and be sure to keep it centered.

Our Booth

I got a new Moto phone with a camera. I took a photo of our booth at the An Affair of the Heart show. The focus seems a bit off. I tried to send the image directly to the blogspot via the email posting feature but it did not work. I then sent the image to my gmail account and then to Picasa 2 to get it posted here. Amazing stuff this technology.
Keep it centered. Posted by Picasa
