Yeah, so, I’ve been at the IDSA conference since about 7am and taken hundreds of photos already. I’ve hit every lecture so far and met a ton of really cool people… but I needed a lil break. It is Saturday after all.
So I snuck off to the local glass blowing studio on Granville Island to catch some industrial design in action. Here’s a few of the shots.
I met a couple of the blowers out on the street and the invited me to come snap some shots of them working. It was nice and warm in there. 🙂
It was nice to be away from the computers for a bit and be around people doing their craft with their hands and their sweat.
These two were an awesome team. They apprenticed together in this shop and now get together once a week to blow together. Quite a crowd assembled outside their studio for the ‘show’.
They ended up busting this piece by mistake, but they laughed a lot and talked about learning a few things and making a few mistake. I think hey had fun. I sure did. 🙂 The rest of the glassblowing shots are over with the IDSA conference ones at EventBlogging.com.
