Glassdrunk?

Such fun! I’ve seen plenty of glass, demos, lectures and great people on my US excursion. Now I feel totally jet-lagged and glass-drunk. Glass Art Society’s Conference 2016 offered a lot and I was pretty overwhelmed by the scale of Corning Museum of Glass and the great facilities they have. I had never before considered making glass art as spectator sport, but I was proofed wrong!

And of course I had to tour around in New York City. I saw only a glimpse of all the museums and galleries the city had on offer. And for the first time classic pop-art (greetings to Warhol, Lichtenstein, Hopper and friends) made more sense than in schoolbook pictures. That imagery had grown from the buildings, items and advertisement around…

All in all I feel educated, good excursion to a world of art and glass in a different scale. Thank you GAS, Corning and New York!
