    Janice Peacock will be our Guest Presenter at the SAGAG October General Meeting via Skype on October 22. Logon at 6:30 - 6:45 (to make sure you have no issues, and to visit), quick meeting at 6:45, and Janice presents at 7:00 p.m.  

    Don't miss this incredible opportunity to learn about and from this talented artist! Janice was originally scheduled to teach at Dream Fire Glass Studio this fall, and has graciously accepted our request to present at this virtual venue in the meantime. Janice Peacock is an artist working in glass & author. Janice has been making one-of-a-kind beads and jewelry since 1992. She also creates large scale sand-cast glass sculptures featuring African masks used in traditional ceremonies. Janice's newest passion is glass micro mosaic jewelry. Micro mosaics originated in Italy and became popular with tourists in the 1800s. Janice has learned how to create these ancient pieces using her lampworking skills to create contemporary designs. You can learn how to make micro mosaics in one of Janice's upcoming classes.   Her work has been exhibited internationally, featured in many publications, and is in the permanent collections of The Corning Museum of Glass and The Museum of Glass in Tacoma, WA.
