A find from my trip to Turkey: This beautiful little picture.
From a Paşabahçe catalog, this wonderful old miniature painting of glassblowers at work from the Tokapi museum.
They are a contemporary glass company, with a lot of interesting designs. Here is a link to their catalogs of limited edition work. It’s nothing like my work, but I share it here anyway- maybe it will influence some of my own pieces soon!
Tracy Savard, of The Corning Museum of Glass Rakow library, has written wrote a short Introduction to the Collection about the Prints and Drawings collection.
Along with the collection of books, the library also houses unique paper objects. She selected my drawings and Harvey Littleton’s print as some of her recent favorites.

And here’s a video that was compiled from the 2300 event in January, 2012. Runtime 1:53.
Anna Boothe’s Kilncasting class in Turkey- a happy hardworking group from Turkey, the US, and Japan! Everyone in the group was knowledgeable about ceramics and was already an artist, so it was a very strong team.By the end of the two weeks it seemed like most people were rushing around busily with multiple projects at various stages of the process (modelling, casting, firing, assembling). Each day we would have breakfast at 8 am and generally work together until about 10 at night, with some nice swim breaks and walks into the tiny town. The studio is out in the countryside, so it’s pretty much like “art camp”. Anna and I had a great time working together, and we hope to plan some more classes in the US and Europe in coming years.
