Museum of Glass, 1801 Dock St, Tacoma, WA
Links: Australian Glass and the Pacific Northwest tells two related stories that began in the 1970s. In 1974, American artist Richard Marquis travelled to Australia to lecture, demonstrate and build glass studios at the invitation of the Australia Council for the Arts. Marquis’ relationship with Australian artist Nick Mount initiated a lineage of blown glass artists in Australia. The second story centers on kiln-formed glass and the relationship between Klaus Moje, founder of the glass workshop at Australian National University in Canberra, and the Bullseye Glass Company in Portland, OR. In 1979 Moje met Boyce Lundstrom, co-founder of Bullseye Glass Company, while at a workshop at Pilchuck Glass School in Stanwood, WA. At Moje’s instigation, Bullseye Glass Company developed a line of compatible, fusible glass that solved long-standing technical problems. This glass is widely used by Australian artists today. Info:

Join Commencement Bay Haiku at this monthly meeting open to the public. We ask participants to bring a page of 3-5 haiku or one page of haibun (prose with haiku) to read as we give constructive suggestions to each other. In addition, we discuss various aspects of haiku, haibun, or haiga (a painting, sketch or photo with haiku). Sometimes, we will have special guests do presentations. We admire haiku written in one-, two-, or three lines of 17 syllables or less. Some of the steps to writing a successful haiku are: to juxtapose two images, allude to seasons, express restrained emotion, and leave room for the reader. We meet the second Tuesday of every month. Commencement Bay Haiku began with three members in September 2011: Judt Shrode, Jim Westenhaver, and Carmen Sterba. We have strong connections with Haiku Northwest and the Haiku Society of America.
