The Glass Art Society met for its annual conference June 12-15 in Seattle, with workshops and other events before and after. Through the courtesy of a home placement, I was able to stay for free with a manager at Spectrum Glass while I rented a car.  I attended a workshop by Fritz Dreisbach at Seattle Glassblowing Studio before the Conference, drove around to visit open studios on Wednesday, attended a charity event involving the Tacoma Museum of Glass, attended sessions, demos, and the tech display during the conference and visited Pilchuck afterward.  I followed up with a visit to Victoria BC with my stepmother that included stopping by Starfish Glass Studio.  Besides images on this page, links are provided to pictures and comments posted elsewhere on the site.
