After Dark at the Reach

After Dark

The Reach Gallery Museum in Abbotsford is celebrating their 5th Anniversary with a swanky summer soiree.  The date is September 14, 2013 at 7:00 pm.

The Pacific Pyros have been invited to demonstrate glass bead making as part of the evenings entertainment.  We previously had our beads and jewelry on display in their gallery so to be invited back is a big deal.  We hope to display their again soon.

More information about buying tickets and the evenings lineup can be found on their website www.thereach.ca

 

Beer & Beadz – August 2013

August 3, 2013, Steve Kristensen’s studio, Chilliwack, BC

While I wasn’t able to attend Steve’s B&B, it sounds like it was well attended and his studio has been described as everyone’s dream.

As most of you know Steve is also a tool maker and has oodles available.  If you’re looking for those great big hole mandrels, contact Steve.

Mikelson’s Festival of Arts

Mikelson’s Festival of Arts is a summer event that features local artisans.   This year was the 40th anniversary  and to mark that achievement, the Pacific Pyros Glass bead makers decided to do demonstrations of our craft.  Members participated in doing live lampworking demonstrations , much to the delight of the public.  Many were amazed by the skill involved in making a glass bead.  We were blessed with fantastic weather and beautiful surroundings.  All that, and melting glass too!  Couldn’t get much better!
