MZ Glassworks looks forward to unveiling our latest lampshade design in the future. It’s nearly finished and we’ll post photos soon. It’s been time consuming, yet fun, seeing it all come together.
Meanwhile, In Salt Lake City Utah this week the United Nations will meet for the 68th time to host The Civil Society Conference. It will be the first time the United Nations has hosted the conference away from their headquarters in New York City.
This week three stained glass panels entitled faith, love and unity will be unveiled. The opening display will be witnessed by representatives from 130 U.N. member countries. Tom Holdman of Holdman Studios, a Utah stained glass artist of international acclaim, is in the process of creating a total of seven panels. Each glass window is based on a value known to bring coalescence to humanity in different countries. The other four glass panels will represent freedom, courage, creativity, knowledge.
