 The 2002 WGBB Magnetless Magnet Exchange

WGBB is the nickname for the community of warm glass artists that frequent www.warmglass.com to exchange techniques, sources, jokes, and friendly conversation. As part of the general jesting, Vancouver artist Brock Craig began giving away one of his refrigerator magnets to the winner of his trivia contests. This developed into a suggestion by Washington artist Els Gangloff that we do a "frig magnet exchange". This quickly blossomed into a rather large (116 artists) endeavour that saw 10,000 tiny pieces of glass art land in Els' lap. These came from all across Canada and the U.S. as well as Norway, Iceland, England, Brazil, Argentina, Japan and Australia. Els divvied them up and sent each contributor a collection of glass art that is amazing to the dedicated glass fuser. The exchange is referred to as the "magnetlesses" because the frig magnets came without any magnets (to save postage and to avoid erasing scanners at the post office). It was so much fun that this has become an annual event. Here are the magnets that I sent in.

 

And here is the wonderful collection that I received.
