And Jon Goldberg's glass sculpture was a pleasant surprise to find. Goldberg owns East Falls Glass Studio and Philadelphia and several years ago I took a beginner glass blowing class there. Jon is a great instructor as well as accomplished artist. He had two pieces in the show, Optical Study- Lightning and Raindrop Sculpture
