The excitement and buzz has died down and now it’s time to reflect on this years show.  It seems like everyone agrees that the Hellenic Centre was a great venue for us, and that we’ll be back there again next year!  Plans for the OGBA 2010 show are already underway!

This year we had more Artists and more technical vendors than last year.  You would almost expect that with 25 glass bead Artists in one room that there would be some overlap with styles and designs, but each and every table was different.  There were beads that included tiny complicated murrini – creating paperweight effects, beautiful florals, fused glass and dichroic items, edgy modern styles, wonderfully sculpted beads, bright, happy colours, beads that looked they had been pulled from the ocean — too many to mention, but most certainly a feast for the eyes and soul!

Our technical vendors brought another dimension to the show with jewellery supplies, kits, glass, tools and books – truly something for everyone.

Here are  a few pictures from the show – we hope you enjoy them.

About Susan
Susan Hood live in Nova Scotia and fell in love with lampworking at the age of 5 when she saw a glass blower make an elephant , which she still has – minus the trunk after 57 years. She endeavors to capture light in all her pieces and try to have her clients feel the passion she has for the medium.


Worst moment?

She will be bringing her Phantasea shell beads, sleeping cat beads, peacock feather and sand dollar beads to the show.
