despite the super bowl, the nor'easter, the ice storm...

Despite hiked up flight and hotel rates and jammed traffic for the Super Bowl on Saturday/Sunday, the Nor'easter that hit on Monday, the ice storm that hit on Wednesday, the NY NOW Show was really fun. This is because a lot of my current retailers came to visit, and a lot of new stores came to add gleena to their collections. And because I was surrounded by kind, talented, and inspiring artists up and down the isles. I am grateful, though exhausted.
gleena booth 9145, small but functional. the noodle bowls were a hit, and even got made into knitting bowls upon a customer’s suggestion:
knitting needles and yarn from loopy mango, also an exhibitor at the show.
glass wall sculpture by lbk studio
graphic prints by cedar mountain
dragon fruit pin by glitter limes
pendants by pyrrha
night lights by whimsy home
new sake cups and beachstone bowl from gleena
bronze sculptural vessels by branch
large hand-blown glass bowls by sandpiper studio
metal three dimensional letterforms by gauge nyc
chain link fence transformed by the Nor’easter
pendant by Eric Silva
glasses reclaimed from bottles by Nanda Soderberg
tree branches decorated by the ice storm
and then it’s time to go home. see you this summer, for the heat wave.
