    Default not real orchids

    I was co-chair for glass conference in Boston this past weekend and one of the glassblowers, Margaret Neher, made a slipper orchid. She also brought a couple of catts she made. So not real orchids but beautiful nonetheless. Sorry about the quality of the photos but the best I could do with my phone.

    She apologized for not finishing the slipper orchid but she only had 3 hours for a demo time, she said usually she puts leaves on too! - martha
