ISGB Gathering

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.
