He taught me to love food and cooking and exploring new places - to say yes to the unfamiliar and to make light of trying situations. To stop at nothing to be better at what I do. #anthonybourdain #rip
Fruit, veg, seafood, cheese and meat at the market in Venice. One of the only touristy things we absolutely had to do while attending the @glassartsociety conference in Murano. When all the restaurants were closed getting back to our Airbnb late at night after long days of demos, studio visits and parties we would eat the prosciutto, salami, parmesan, bread and fruit that we had found at this market.
Taking the plunge w/ @overkillarvin_glass...not easy
We got to display our plasma spirale along with some of the most genius plasma artists of our time last week 4,600 miles away in Murano during the @glassartsociety conference. The Berengo studio and gallery was the perfect location for the Lux Lumen exhibit. Met so many amazing people on the island I don’t know where to start. Thank you to @mundymhepburn @hammond_gravy @berengostudio @collentinepatrick and brother @btullman for an inspiring week . . . #glassofig #glassblowing #glassart #glassartsociety #gas2018 #murano #plasma #chicago #igniteglass #btullman #picoftheday
