Hello Glass and Bead Friends!
I am thrilled to announce that I will be returning to
this year! It has been two years since I’ve been there and I miss the people
and the town itself. Tucson
I will be exhibiting at a new show, the Tucson Glass Art and Bead Festival, a show focusing on handmade glass. The line-up of exhibitors has some of the most talented artists in glass. One such artist, Jared DeLong, has not been in Tucson for several years and his glasswork and carving skills are unrivaled. Also attending will be a group of Japanese artists who have cornered the market on delicate detail in their glass beads and artwork. Lewis Wilson will present select items for viewing and sale from his personal collection-- along with his own artwork; he has been making glass art for over 40 years! A full list of exhibitors seen here at http://www.tucsonglassartshow.com/exhibitors.html.
This year, my husband Paul will be with me at the show. He just finished writing Conciatore, the Life and Times of 17th Century Glassmaker Antonio Neri, a biography on Antonio Neri, author of the first printed book of glass recipes published in 1612. Paul will be available to discuss his new book, Antonio Neri, and to sell signed copies of Conciatore. (For more info on Conciatore: http://www.conciatore.org/
Continuing with tradition, I will have my friend Emilio Santini’s miniature bottles, amphorae and earrings for sale. All pieces are brand new and beautiful!
Please stop by and say hello, I would love to see you!
