Back in June, I had the pleasure of participating in a day of glass for the Arts Commission's Hot Shots! 12 artists over the course of about 12 hours made 12 pieces in collaboration with 12 different area bars/restaurants. The idea is that the pieces will be on display at the participating locations leading up to the Month of Glass in October, then there will be a Hot Shots auction of all the objects! Pretty sweet. The day of glass was incredible; blowing glass all day long with friends, it was just like being back a BG. I was paired with Tony Packo's and made a pickle jar with engraved labels in homage to the real thing. Check out the photos courtesy of Tom Brooks.
