I have to stress how important it is to invest in yourself and your continuing education. Learning art, or anything I think, requires that you are continually learning and growing.
Today reinforced my belief that learn anything and everything you can from people who are skilled, talented, and willing to share. Seek out those individuals whose work you admire and learn all you can from them.
I had the great opportunity today to attend a class taught by Kent Lauer. WOW.
And there were other artists who attended this workshop too. We all wanted to learn more. It is just terrific to hear others talk about their addiction to glass. What a medium! If it ever captures you, you're hooked.
Kent is phenomenal. Great knowledge, skills, and humor. Today I made two dichroic sculpture pendants, which I will wire wrap. And Kent will be coming to Glass at the Gardens on the opening reception on Wednesday night....now I hope all of my pieces will be accepted into the show when they are delivered tomorrow. What a week this is going to be.
