Vegas - Great glass and thrills!

6:45 AM

The Glass Craft and Bead Expo happens the beginning of April each year at the South Point Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas. The show brings together all types of glass and bead artists, suppliers, and teachers in the industry. It is a wonderful opportunity not only to stock up on amazing glass work and supplies, but one of the best events in the country to take a class from industry professionals.


Below are some photos of the work featured in the Gallery of Excellence (photos courtesy of Lisa Kan - who is not only a gifted lampworker, but also takes wonderful photos - particularly handy when the Soft Flex camera on-site goes a little haywire).

This is the 4th year that Soft Flex has exhibited in the show, and the year that I finally rode all the rides at the top of the Stratosphere! My co-worker Brian was kind enough (or crazy enough) to go with me, and although the one picture below looks like we were horrified, we really did enjoy the rides. Seriously. I actually think it cured me of my irrational fear of heights!




Enjoying (??) the rides atop the Stratosphere is Las Vegas



Already looking forward to next year's show!

  1. Just saw those rides featured on a Travel Channel show and after hearing all the screams of the passengers, I have absolutely no regrets about not joining you and Bri on them. You two are brave!

  2. You look like you had so much fun and saw some great things. I haven't been able to go for several years now and really miss it.
