Woohoo!!! Art and Soul in LAS VEGAS. Can I say dream come true? Too fun and next year Glenny has expanded the conference. Thank you! Now I do live in Vegas so it was interesting from several perspectives, the first being – I NEVER get to casinos. Strange but true. So it was fun to go through two casinos to get to classes, sometimes a long walk, but still fun/interesting. And it was great being able to dash home to get supplies during the lunch hour. And to sleep in rather than get up at 4 am for work, lol. Too nice. Very relaxing.
So, did I take photos? NO, I carried the camera every day and did not take photos except the last day. So for now I am just going to post about my last class – it was with Stephanie Lee and I finally got here Junkdrawer metalsmithing. WOW!!!
The first shot – one is stephanies and one is mine. I think we can figure that one out. But in my defense I converted a mistake into my house thus the scorching and I kind of like the drunk roog. Its in the next photo also of my work area and some of my items. Hey it looks way better when NOT next to a great one! Now on my work pile there you see a blue button (with lots of round dots like on it) and next to it you see the impression results I made. Too fun.
The last photo is of my tablemate’s work. Notice the hand – its actually the impression of a brass victorian hand piece I have. Amazing how different these items look when we do Stephanie’s method of recreating them. I think we both got addicted to doing those!
