Upcoming Markets and Riverfest

My next market is the Art Market of New Orleans in Palmer Park on Saturday, March 29 10am to 4pm.
I'm getting ready for Riverfest, across from the Old Courthouse in Algiers Point on Saturday and Sunday, April 5 and 6, 2008. Details coming soon.

You can find me teaching at NOCGI in the meantime.

Teaching is sooo cool. I think it's great that I can spread this addiction to glass and flame to so many others. Till later - Flame On!
