… as told by Silvia McIntosh

There were approximately 25 people that attended Alexx Cheng’s Demo on May 16 at Terminal City Co-op.  Alexx was his usual charismatic self and it was a joy to see his talents at work.  Alexx, always ready with a quick joke was appreciated by all.

In the 2 hours he demonstrated his flower implosion cab which he makes for a ring that he is sells as fundraiser for a school in Thailand.  Many of the attendees, who were recently at the Whistler Molten Experience were wearing these rings.

Alexx shared some of his dichroic tricks as well as how he sets cubic zirconias in glass.  So beautiful!   He demonstrated a small jug with a handle that were made separately and then put together, all in soft glass.   We even had a lesson on the white board – not sure what it was about, but there some laughs and some interesting drawings!  Hmmm

He has promised to visit Canada more often as he will be retiring soon and has a beautiful granddaughter in Ottawa that has captured his heart.
