/////It was March in OHIO///// {The journey of Callan & Stern}

At 9:30 am on Sunday March 31st Nancy Callan and I rolled into the Glass Axis studio in Columbus, OH to blow some glass. We were about to embark on a week long residency at the Toledo Art Museum and open a joint exhibition at the Hawk Gallery.  Talk about living the dream! During the demo at Glass Axis Nancy and I collaborated for the first time on a piece that we called “Nemoy”


The following are a bunch of photographs from the adventures that Nancy and I had at Glass Axis, The Hawk Gallery and The Toledo Museum of Art. The image of “Nemoy”was taken by the one and only Russell Johnson, but all the rest of the working shots were taken by Bill Hamilton.

I would like to give  a special family shout out to both Bill and Ellen Hamilton for hosting Nancy, myself and our faithful Brent Rogers during our Journey to the middle of America! Thank you for your support and your lovely home.


Bill & Ellen are two of the best folks around and their are thousands who can attest to that.



Also a big shout out to Jeff Mack, John Hogan, Lydia Boss and all the staff at the Glass Pavilion for helping pave the way for Nancy and I.
