Reef Collaboration for Shannon Hill
As many of you know, fellow glass artist and all around nice guy, Shannon Hill is very sick with cancer.
I just saw a thread on Lampwork Etc. that an artist collaboration is being organized to benefit his kids in some way.
A team of glass artists are building a reef scene for him and would love you to send in a turtle, seashell, fish, coral or anything related. Items must be in hand by May 10th.
Organizers, (Brent Graber, Mr. Smiley is one of them) want to make it as inclusive as possible and honor him and benefit his kids at the same time.
Any COE is fine.
Send it to:
716 NW 6th Dr.
Boca Raton, FL 33486
So far, some of the artists who have donated include Robert Mickelsen, Ben Burton, Rashan JOnes, Wil Menzie, Wesley Fleming, Lucid Visions and many others.
I had been thinking about either sending in this mermaid or the starfish, but since have changed my mind. I'm going to make something special for this.
One of the reasons why I love this glass world, is the way folks come together for each other. We are a community of supportive and kind people who love glass. All of our work together will make an outstanding collaborative piece that will honor Shannon and help his kids. Would you please join me on this?
