Glass artist Pamina Traylor visited ESU on February 26th to speak at Art Forum. She also demonstrated in the hot shop for most of the day. During the morning, she, along with the help of ESU glass students, pulled cane for the pieces that she would make later that day. After lunch, Pamina made a decanter of her design, a drinking glass of the same motif, and fashioned a high-heeled shoe from some of the remaining cane. These pictures were taken during that afternoon.
