International Society of Glass Beadmakers 2019 Gathering XXVII

Demonstration/Lecture: A New Twist on Dots!

KLogan.benchbeads.jpg

Kristina Logan was named the Dot Queen back in 1993 when just a handful of people were making glass beads in the United States. Twenty-five years later Kristina’s beads are still full of dots and her unique patterns are immediately recognizable as her own. Over the years, Kristina is proud that her designs have inspired so many other beadmakers around the world. In this demonstration and lecture, Kristina will show how she places dots exactly where she wants them to be and attains her signature precision at the torch. She will also explain her thought process when she creates unique designs. Most importantly she will give the audience tools for improving their own precision at the torch and tips to creating unique beads that reflect each beadmaker’s personal vision.

History of the PMA Craft Show

The Philadelphia Museum of Art Craft Show was founded in 1977 and was the first retail craft show established and organized by a volunteer committee for the benefit of a non-profit institution. This trailblazing Show has served as a prototype for successful subsequent shows in cities such as Washington, D.C., and Evanston, Ill among others. The Show is presented each November by the Museum's Women's Committee and the Craft Show Committee for the benefit of the Philadelphia Museum of Art. A portion of each year's proceeds is dedicated to the purchase of a craft object for the Museum's permanent collection. Funds raised are also used to underwrite education and publication projects within the Museum special exhibits. Proceeds have enabled the purchase of state-of-the-art equipment for the Audio-Visual and Conservation departments and monies have been contributed to the renovation of both Museum infrastructure and galleries as well as external installations such as the Rodin Museum and Mount Pleasant, an 18th century house in nearby Fairmount Park.
