While I was out in CA I had the opportunity to attend a glass making session at Leaderglass shop in Sonoma. The shop is owned and run by glass artist Alex Leader and run by his business partner Lillian. Here my sister and brother-in-law of Salatino Gandolfo Glass are work with the hot glass like its candy. Its not. Its hot, hot, hot. They make it look easy, but it gets intense as the process moves on. They finished some of the pieces in their cold shop where more sweat and hard work is poured into their art.
