I was able to experience many art forms, including glass and artist jewelry in Austin and also Houston - The Bayou City Art Festival - and Galveston.
I was also able to visit the Glass Monkey in South Austin. They are a studio specializing in Pyrex. They were very hospitable and gave me a tour of the shop while students were working on some projects. Great people there.
