Shannon Hill

I found out today that Shannon passed away on June 21, 2009. I saw this on his web site.

October 29, 1968-June 21, 2009

Shannon's great talent will live on in his beautiful glass work; his love of glass will live on in his students; his heart and soul will live on in his children, family, and friends. We are better for having had him in our lives. Until next time, Obiwan.

The Shannon Hill Project will be unveiled at the International Society of Glass Beadmakers (ISGB) annual Gathering July 20-26, 2009, in Miami , Florida. The Project is a tribute, and a way for his friends and fellow glass artists to show their appreciation. The Project is a collaborative effort that combines Shannon ’s passion for glass with his love of the sea in the form of an aquarium filled with glass sculptures depicting various ocean creatures and sea life. Many glass artists have graciously agreed to participate in the Project.

I am very sad to hear of his passing. I will miss him.
