Gathering 2017 Memorabilia - Commemorative Bead

Renowned glass artist, Kristina Logan, has created a limited edition silver lined bead in her distinctive signature style for the XXV Gathering Commemorative Bead. As an organization, it is truly an honor to have one of our Past Presidents design such a memorable piece. Kristina served as President of the ISGB from 1996 to 1998. 

She is recognized internationally for her glass beads as she travels extensively throughout the United States and Europe teaching workshops and lecturing on contemporary glass beads and jewelry. Kristina has taught beadmaking at such well known schools as The Studio at the Corning, New York; Urban Glass in Brooklyn, New York; Penland School of Crafts in North Carolina; Musee-Atelier de Verre à Sars-Poteries in France; and Centro Studio Vetro and Abate Zanetti in Venice, Italy.

Kristina’s work has been collected by the Smithsonian Museum of American Art, Renwick Gallery, the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston MA, and the Corning Museum of Glass, Corning NY, and the Musée du Verre de Sars-Poteries, Sars-Poteries, France. Kristina writes that beads “are part of my lifelong fascination with art and ornamentation. Glass beads form a historical thread, connecting people and cultures throughout our history.”

This Commemorative Bead is available for purchase by conference registrants at the price of $100. Preorders will be taken
during online registration and beads will be delivered at The Gathering in Las Vegas. To wear or to collect, this limited edition 2017 commemorative bead is a true “must have”!​
