Just got an excited call from a friend on the floor at the Glass Craft and Bead Expo - in Vegas. She was at the Invitational Hot Glass flame-off. To one side of her was Milon Townsend - building a 10 foot tall rocking chair - in glass. To the other side was Doni Hatz and her team - building a 3 foot tall bird cage - with birds. Further down, Bandhu Scott Dunham is building a glass replica of the mousetrap from the game - with a dichro marble being made to roll down it - being made by ... now I forget.
Damn. Shoulda gone.
