Hot Times in Asheville

Psssst, this is where I am right now...I'm in Asheville, NC at Hot Times here at A Touch of Glass owned by Gary Newlin, and which is put together by my buddy, Marjorie Langston with the help of friends. I'll mention more names in my follow up post.

It's always a joy to attend this get together. About 30 torches, a lot of glass, chatter, tools and laughter start at 9 in the morning and continue until 9 pm at night, for those who can make it that late. I think this is the 6th year and my third or fourth time attending.

Fabulous drawings, wonderful resources and selected bead artists do demos twice a day. We also have a room full of generous lampworkers who share what they know with the rest of us. I'll fill you in on some of the details when I return. But meanwhile, back to the torch and my new & old friends.

See you tomorrow!
