During my travels across the world to Italy, Croatia and Malta, I met Mandy Patchin, the owner and creator or Canada's first and only portable glass studio. The funny thing is she is based out of Calgary where I am currently situated, yet we both had to travel to Italy for our path's to finally cross. After talking glass and sharing laughs she invited me to come join her team at the 2018 Calgary Stampede. This was a great follow-up to the gig in Croatia as I felt extremely ready to be on the microphone presenting and blowing glass as I had done the same thing in Zadar Croatia only with brand new techniques. All in all a great experience.
