The last three weeks have been incredible! Eskisehir, Turkey was amazing. I was accompanied by Colin and Julia Webster from the UK and Nobuyuki Fujiwara from Japan to lead Odunpazari's 4th International Hot Glass Festival. The three of us demonstrated throughout the week to share our private practice techniques with the audience and glass community.
I had the opportunity to spread word about my book as well as share the hard copy I am editing. I also spent one of the days visiting and working in the hotshop at Anadolu University. What a fun experience!
Thank you to all the people who made this visit possible and so wonderful! To all my new friends: I hope to meet again very soon.
After Turkey was SOFA Chicago. This was my fourth year showing at the exhibition. I was honored to be represented by Adam Blaue Gallery this year. It is always wonderful to see family and friends during this show! I had the opportunity to demo and narrate on the Corning Museum of glass Hot Glass Roadshow again. Thank you for the demo!

Now on to the book! I am back in Phoenix and working towards a July release for the first book! Super exciting!
I am continuing to redraw the scanned images in Photoshop.
Here is a little example of how I want the final process pictures to look. The images in the right column are the original scanned drawings. The images on the left are the edited Photoshop ones. Before and After pic! Of course I still need to add the explanations.
Enjoy the day! Spread the word!
I was raised in Calumet City, IL. My professional glassblowing career led me to Phoenix, AZ and the coast of Carlsbad, CA. where I was given the opportunity to teach glassblowing classes. Notes and chalk drawings of different techniques for the students resulted in my current book project.
