my travels 2012 – 2015

To see what I’ve been up to most recently (or not so recently), check out my blog at The emphasis is on glass that I find in my travels.

I started this in 2012, when I drove from Tucson, Arizona, to Richmond, Virginia and back. My friends were appalled that I’d make such a long trip alone, but it was fine. I blogged every evening, so they could follow along and see where I’d been and what I’d been doing.

In March 2014 I was in Nicaragua. I didn’t find much glass, but I photographed what I found. ,

In August 2014 I was in Tacoma and Seattle, Washington, visiting friends who had moved from Tucson.

In September 2014 the chance to show my glass in Richmond again took me there. The trip offered opportunities for visits to the Corning Museum of Glass in Corning, New York, and the Chrysler Museum in Norfolk, Virginia, which also has a glass collection and a glass facility.

This was followed quickly by three weeks in October in Europe. Besides catching up with a lot of friends I hadn’t seen for up to 10 years, I was absolutely blown away by the Europäisches Museum für Modernes Glas in Rödental, Germany. Not an easy place to reach by public transportation and foot, but I managed.

Thanks to my friend Jacqueline in France and a great idea she had as I passed through in October, I was back in January 2015, this time as a guest artist in an exhibit by local artists in her area (Seichamps, a suburb of Nancy).

 Just recently, in May 2015, I found an exhibition at the Tucson Museum of Art that included some really wonderful, well known local and national glass artists:

After several notices for the opening of the Second Invitational Glass Show at Blue Rain Gallery in Santa Fe on June 5, 2015, I took off:

But first, I spent the day in Taos, where I found a lot more glass:

The day after, I visited Shidoni in Tesuque and headed home.

In October 2015 I was again in Europe:
