Editor’s Message

| 0

To all my fellow guild members,

Over 20 years ago George Kjaer, the founder of the Oregon Glass Guild, handed me a copy of the guild’s newsletter at a Hot Glass Horizons Show and Sale event. This was the start of my very long relationship with the glass guild. As a labor of love and as an homage to George, I started a quarterly newsletter while serving as the state board’s Secretary. It was my hope that the newsletter would augment other forms of guild communication and would help to feature our guild’s artists.

After having produced the newsletter for almost five years I have come to the difficult decision that this is my last edition (with the exception of a fuller In Memoriam tribute to Roger Thomas later this month). As the newsletter has been a quarterly publication the next issue would be scheduled for June or July. If you are interested in seeing the newsletter continue and would like to become the newsletter editor/director I would be more than happy to help in the process. Doing the newsletter has been a source of joy as I have gotten to know and feature many of you.

hank you for the opportunity to celebrate both the guild and you!

With gratitude, Sharon Dunham
