I am back from a trip to Albuquerque, New Mexico for the annual ISGB Gathering. ISGB stands for the International Society of Glass Beadmakers. We are a fun loving bunch of glass melting (mostly) girls who gather once a year for education, laughs, glass melting, networking and selling our work.
I took all these guys with me and most of them found new homes. They have flown the nest. I must get to work on more.
I was able to take a trip to the Acoma Pueblo, Sky City. This pueblo is located on the top of a mesa and many of the people who live there are ceramic artists. I was able to purchase a couple pieces of pottery and to connect with many of the artists.

It is a magical place.

Gathering was amazing - it always is. I am already looking forward to 2016 in New Orleans.
