    On November 12, 2019, Venice and Murano, Italy, were devastated by “acqua alta,” record high water from tidal floods, which caused severe damage throughout the laguna and islands.

    Glass Vegas 2020

    Glass Vegas 2020

    The success of Glass Vegas can be attributed to a lot of hard work by the Glass Vegas trade show team, including mother-daughter duo LeeAnne and Amy Short, who made the love and bonds formed in the functional glass community an important part of doing business.

    The 2020 Glass Vegas Expo will be held January 28 through 30 at Bally’s Hotel and Casino, in Las Vegas, with over 300 vendor booths representing between 500 to 600 independent glass artists as well as leading wholesale vendors.

So much info & inspirational!

I’ve really been enjoying this podcast... I started at the beginning and am only part way through Season 2, but I’m loving it. I am a novice fused glass artist and thought that some of the interviews with artists from other disciplines might not be as interesting or useful for me. But that’s not the case! I typically view the artist’s work online as I listen to the podcast, and that makes the meaning and technique really come to life. I’ve also learned about a fused glass artist I didn’t know about - and I’ll be taking a class from her soon. Thanks, Shawn & Glass Art Magazine!!!

Excellent interview series

Shawn has amassed a very impressive lineup of interviews with so many noted glass artists. She has great questions, and an easy interview style that makes these great to listen to.

Artistry is more than just technique - and Shawn helps uncover the history, personality, and thoughts behind the artwork itself. Keep rocking, Shawn!

So happy to have found this!

It is wonderful to have all these informative, entertaining and indepth conversations with great artists who share their experiences, concerns and directions. I especially enjoy when an artist shares how they evolved into what they do right now. Bringing art to the community is also a favorite topic. Keep up the great work!
