Dante Marioni rocks my socks off
Dante is frickin awesome, here he is making frickin awesome stuff...
I personally think that whistling cheerfully while you torch the bajeezus out of a badass vase makes for a good photo, don't you?
Janusz Pozniak was also here, he's a badass in his own right (he's the tall one)
Speaking of height, it was reassuring to me that one of my heros isn't overwhelmingly tall. No one, not Ken, not Ian, no one can ever give me guff again about having to stand on a cinder block to be able to blow into the optic mold...
These two are definately getting framed. I'm such a dorky fangirl ^_^;;;;
And, on an entirely unrelated note, one Dominic Barbato DARED to complain that I never mention him in my journal..
for more pictures and video clips, you can go see the post I made in the hot glass community..
Seriously, though, this was really an awesome experience. I learned so much just by being there. Yaaay!
