The Enamelist Society Conference
Getting the chance to meet other makers/enamelists was one of the highlights of attending the Enamelist Society Conference in Beverly, Massachusetts in early August. In the photo above, I am dining with Terry Gay Puckett and Kathryn Craig, two very talented and beautiful new enamelist friends. We are enjoying the The Organic Cafe, which serves a 95% organic menu!
A trip to the Fuller Craft Museum to see "Little dreams in glass and metal", an incredible decades-spanning exhibition of enameled works, was organized for the conference attendees. If you have the chance to go, don't pass it up!
I am standing with Delia Dante of FireFusion Studio , who is well known for her large, gorgeous custom and commissioned welded work and her skills as an enamel educator. If you are in the Boise Idaho area, check out her studio and gallery, where she teaches classes. Not only is she incredibly talented but she is a really nice person too!
Note the haunting blue brooch I am wearing that was made by one of my favorite enamel artists, Anne Dinan. I won it in the silent auction :)
