I spent my spring break taking a workshop at Penland School of Craft in North Carolina. I studied under Alicia Lomne to learn her techniques in pate de verre glass casting. (Pate de verre- glass paste- is an ancient technique going back to the Egyptians). My trip to North Carolina started last Friday with a double rainbow (faint) as I drove through Covington, KY escaping the Friday rush hour traffic. Strangely, the rainbow seems to lead straight to the giant bottle of Wild Turkey… Hmmm, a sign?
Below are pictures of the hot glass sculpting class that was going on. Lots of Pilchuck people.
The Plate show that happened at the Penland Gallery tonight- beautiful stuff!
