    We are stoked to be sponsoring again, and will be there with a booth load of goodies! See you all there. This event was very down to earth, and followed in the Glassroots vibe. Really good time, really good demos, and most of all, great folks running it! If you can make it this year, it's well worth your efforts.

    We are exactly two weeks away from the 2014 AAGI main event. We still need donations of both functional and non-functional glass, as well as art in any medium for our silent auction. Full line up is below, and full demo schedule is on our website, as well as after party info. It's going to be a very fun and jam packed weekend.

    Couldn't be happier to be on board as a sponsor for this event. Great event, great people, great times. We sent all our stuff down to Austin today. Excited for the AAGI attendees, who will get first dibs on all our goodies we are bringing. Tons of great tubing from Abe, killer deals on our fresh batches of gilson opals, and much more. Another reason to come out and support the AAGI. We had a blast last year, and this year looks like it promises to be even better. See you all there!

    So if your'e wanting donations of any sort of art, functional or nonfunctional, where would we send it and to whom should we send it. If we were to say, attend this event do we just bring the item(s) with us?

    Follow the link on the bottom of the page. You can bring donations in person as well. We will take just about anything, we don't care if it's glass or functional or what…we just want art.
