Oh What Fun!

It can be bittersweet returning home from such amazing adventures at sea.  With nearly unlimited creativity on stage, and with incredibly skilled teams, dreams do come true!  I love finding inspiration from daily travel, natural patterns, and sometimes even creative and challenging suggestions.

I am definitely more drawn to Scandinavian style glass.  It tends to be on the thicker side, and really uses the weight of the clear to optimize glass's optic beauty.  Tobias Møhl is a Danish glass artist and probably my favorite glass artist today.  I encourage you to check out his work to understand what I am talking about.

I spent most of my trip in Scandinavia and the Baltic countries.  I very much love the culture and the design aesthetic.  Helsinki, Finland was actually chosen as the World's Design Capital in 2012.  Not everyone would want an amazingly orange glass fox in their living room but I could sure find a place for it somewhere!  Whether you are a glass enthusiast or a complete glass nerd like myself, traveling the world and stumbling upon the brilliant and sometimes hideous glassy ideas of others is always exciting!
