We had a very special evening "good luck" party for Matt as he goes off to San Jose State to complete his degree in Art. The show of the evening was watching Matt complete this incredible goblet. We are very proud of him. He has been working with us for 9 years and hopefully, will still help out now and then. New helper? Luke LaRash.

The light outside is beautiful - soft and warm colors but with a chill in the air. That is a sign that it is time for the 17th Annual Autumn Art Studios Tour. Our 17th. This year there are 90 artists at 57 locations. A bit overwhelming, but you can preview work from each artist at the Arts Building, 808 Lincoln Way in Auburn. Buy a ticket and plan your path. Or start at our studio and pick up your tickets here. We will be blowing but come before 3 to see the best demos. Glass blowing can be a bit exhausting! Enjoy fresh hot local cider with us. Come if you can. We would love to see you and celebrate another Fall!

What a fun day with Heather, Hannah, Wes, Matt and Lindsey! First, Birth of Impressionism at the De Young Museum in Golden Gate Park, Indian food lunch, then Fisher Collection at the MOMA. Finished just in time to experience Hot Glass Cold Beer at Public Glass with a great demonstration by Blaker-DeSomma from Santa Cruz. Home by midnight... Can't think of a better way to spend a day!

I am excited to have a photo of our new installation in a beautiful home in San Diego. We worked back and forth with color samples, photoshop and the homeowner even tried different layouts in cardboard cutouts! I love working back and forth with custom orders. Each one is a unique challenge!
Heather joined us for the weekend and she is the Queen of retail since she works retail on Pacific in Santa Cruz. We are grateful for her energy!
I really appreciate the hard work of the ACGA organization - wonderful people and a visual feast.

We will be participating in the Palo Alto Clay and Glass Festival July 10, 11 from 10 to 5 at the Palo Alto Art Center on the corner of Embarcadero and Newell. It is a visual treat of clay and glass artists from Northern California. www.acga.net for more info - maps and artists. Should be fun! We are working hard on the booth and gardening too! More on that later...

The crazy trip is over. First, a beautiful drive down the Eastern Sierra to Las Vegas then over to Santa Monica for an opening reception at Adamm's Gallery, a wonderful drive up 101 through California - home one day - and off to Heather's graduation - Phi Beta Kappa UC Santa Cruz......now back to blowing through the summer heat which luckily hasn't really hit yet. Way too fast. Most photos were out the car window at 70 mph.....

We are excited, proud parents - our daughter, Heather, graduates with honors from UCSC on Saturday, June 12! I am reading her thesis and needed a break! She majored in Community Studies with a minor in Latin American Studies and worked in San Francisco at La Raza Central Legal with day laborers and domestic workers for her internship. She will stay in Santa Cruz for the summer and study for the LSAT in August. You never know what will come of this but a life adventure is ahead for her and for so many more young people who take on our troubled world.
