Pictures from the 2011 Fire and Rain Annual ISGB Northwest Regional Retreat.
I had the privilege to take a class from Kristina Logan this month. This was a double treat since the class was hosted at Heather Trimletts studio at Blue Dolphin Stained and Beveled Glass in sunny San Diego and she was there to also provide demonstrations and additional insight. As a added bonus, we were invited for a special dinner at her home.
For those who have not had the pleasure to meet either one of them, I can assure you they are both as nice and helpful as they are talented.
The class was 2 days with the first focused on making cabochons. Various techniques and ways of making them were demonstrated and practiced in the studio. The second day we were shown the fundamentals of preparing, sawing, filing, soldering and polishing silver to create a ring and set our newly made cabochons in it.
I added on a few days to the trip, to let my feet thaw out a bit, and have a few pictures to share of the San Diego area.
ps: If you have some pictures that you would like added, please contact me.
