Here’s The Daily Sesh’s throwback to 2018 Glass Vegas Expo!
This buyers expo featured glass artist from all over the country! We got to see some of the greatest artists around. The expo featured several events over 3 days: The Boro Derby, World Series of Glass Competition, Millie Meetup, Marble Exchange, Drop Your Shot Glass Competition, Stagecation, Industry Hall and The Backyard.
Here are our favorite highlights from the Expo!
The Boro Derby or Derby in the Desert, was one of the best events at the expo. It featured almost 70 of the country’s greatest glass blower. Each created their own glass car to race in this Heady version of a pinewood derby race. Each car was amazing and some were even functional. The Best of Show car was the Wille E Coyote Rocket Race Car by Steller Glass. The event raised $6000 for the Evergreen State Project and Las Vegas Injured Artist Fund.
These are some of the impressive pieces that have earned our honorable mention!
