    • November 13 - Natick, Massachusetts
      Founders Chapter, National American Glass Club, Ltd;.. November 13, Wednesday FIeld Trip: Visit a Spectacular Private Collection in Cambridge, MA.
      During our winter hiatus last year, a few of us gathered to see a private glass collection in Cambridge. The owners have agreed to open their home to the club again this November so that more of our members might be able to enjoy seeing it. Here is a brief description offered by the collectors:
      Our collection is quite diverse with examples of blown, cast, flameworked, cameo, and slumped glass. One of our favorite artists is Lino Tagliapietra. His Fuji is our most recent purchase. We also love William Morris. He created many works of animals, birds, masks—all of which have a significant archeological feel to them. We have gorgeous cast pieces by Martin Rosol and Steven Weinberg. And we love our pieces by Nancy Callan, Lucy Lyon, Sonia Blomdahl, Deborah Moore, Lisabeth Sterling and Sarah Vaughn. In addition, we collect Loetz. We focus on pieces from around 1900 in the art nouveau style.
      Plan to arrive about 10:30 for coffee and they will show us their collection starting at 11:00. There are many restaurants nearby and a few other places that might interest folks in the afternoon. The exact address and other details will be sent to you closer to the date. This is a special treat not to be missed! Unless otherwise noted, meetings are held at: Morse Institute Library 14 East Central Street, Natick, MA 01760 • 508.647.6520 www.morseinstitute.org

The swap will be held at Mitchell Allen Memorial Hall, located at the historic Toccoa Depot and next door to the Currahee Military Museum. The Toccoa Depot has been restored to its original appearance in 1940 and showcases the history of Toccoa and Stephens County, Georgia, along with many artifacts detailing the lives and experiences of the men in the 506th Airborne Infantry Regiment who trained for combat missions at nearby Camp Toccoa, made famous by the hit HBO miniseries, "Band of Brothers". Tours of the museum can be arranged for those interested at minimal cost. Around 15 tables will be available, so please contact Mike Herron before the swap to reserve your sales table. If all those tables are spoken for, plan to bring your own table. There is lots of room in the meeting hall and there will be a great assortment of insulators for sale. Admission is free and there is no charge to set up a sales table. Lunch will be provided and others are asked to bring a covered dish, dessert or drinks to complement the meal. Mark your calendars now for a terrific day of awesome insulators and fellowship in the beautiful mountains of Northeast Georgia.

      PM Program: "Contemporary Glass Bead Making" Presented by Kristina Logan. Kristina has been making glass beads for over 25 years and is recognized internationally for her precisely patterned pieces. In this lecture Kristina will discuss her inspiration and the process she goes through when she creates her unique work. Kristina's work has been collected by The Smithsonian Museum of American Art: Renwick Gallery, Washington DC, The Museum of Fine Arts, Boston MA, The Corning Museum of Glass, Corning NY, and the Musée du Verre de Sars-Poteries, Sars-Poteries, France.
      The Corning Museum of Glass writes "...the work of Kristina Logan stands out for its originality, sophistication, and innovation. Logan is an especially talented artist who works with flameworked glass. She makes unique and complex beads in intricate patterns whose sometimes knobby forms recall the remarkable eye beads made in ancient China. Yet Logan's style is purely contemporary."
