Glasscraft Emerging Artist Award and Women in Glass Gallery

I hope everyone had a Very Merry Christmas!

Looking outside and seeing the snow fly made me look forward to is a focal from yesterday done in warm, spring-like colors. I added a few blooms for good measure!
A lot has happened since my last post....
Glasscraft Emerging Artist Award
I am very honored and excited to have been selected to receive the Glasscraft Emerging Artist award. I submitted my information to be included in The Flow 5th Annual Gallery of Women in Glass. Imagine my surprise when they sent me a layout proof for the Emerging Artist award!

After receiving my magazine yesterday, and seeing the incredible glasswork done by so many fabulous artists, it reinforced my first reaction of "Why Me?" There are so many lampwork artists deserving of this award, it truly surprises and very much honors me to have been considered.

Thank you so much Vickie, that sure means a lot. I have so much respect and admiration for your work!

Congratulations Lisa!!! The award couldn't have gone to a more deserving lampworker. Since you're "emerging" I guess someday I'll be able to say "I knew her when"! Kudos :-)

Lisa this is so awesome! I can still remember when you first started "talking" about Lampwork Beads and now YOU are published, in a magazine, featured as an emerging artist!! You know I am your biggest fan - ALWAYS! I am also very proud of you!

Thanks Leslie and Karen. I looked back at the beads over the past five years, and they have changed...and GROWN...quite a bit. I so enjoy making really makes me happy when others enjoy them :) Hugs, Lisa
