Lucky me - this summer I was a participant in the Hands on History Session at Pilchuck Glass School. It was a ten day adventure in the forest of Stanwood Washington. Pilchuck is always an amazing experience and this session was no exception to that rule. I saw good friends, great glassworking and had the chance to stay in the only shanty left on campus (it comes complete with its own burgeoning population of mice)
On my way to Carbondale I traveled as fast as I could. Returning to Seattle I get to take my time. I moved out of my home and studio the first week of August but didn't have to be in Seattle until September. This fact could only mean one thing - ROAD TRIP. I volunteered for the Penland Auction, jumped off a cliff in Carbondale, ate snacks at the Appalachia Center for Craft and did the electric slide (albeit poorly) in Kansas City. I also swung by Nebraska to visit my sister who is just starting a PhD program in communications in Lincoln.
