Our trip to SOFA Chicago was a fabulous whirlwind. Even though it was a bit overwhelming to see all the work exhibited, we had a chance to talk with collectors about our work and visit with friends in the glass community. Barbara , Phil and Dale of Option Art did an amazing job displaying our work as well as that of other Canadian artists . We also had a great time working with colleagues, Jay MacDonnell, G Brian Juk and Eric Meek while doing the demonstration at the Corning mobile glass studio.
