Running Around the ACC

Tommie Rush at booth #2104

Tim Tate & I ran through the American Craft Council show at Baltimore’s Convention Center - looking at the cool work and catching up with some old friends who are exhibiting at the huge show. Unfortunately, we were not able to stay too long, and we also were there on a wholesale market day – where the artists showing on those days are marketing to retail buyers – many of the booths were not open as a result. The ACC opens for the public on Thursday February 25, 2010.

The Glass artists have a strong showing – and some (tho not all) are:


Penland artist-in-residence Devin Burgess sculptural glass is beautiful & sublime.

Kenny Pieper’s newest works show how his incredible detailed and intricate canework can feel spontaneous .

Jaimie Harris’ Infusion Panels – the result of experiments he pursued at a recent residency at the Corning Museum of Glass. These one-of-a-kind panels begin as solid sculptures and are then kiln-cast into flat blocks, carved and polished.
