During our last SLLS meeting we were discussing lampworking events to go to. One we had discussed was Marble Crazy. It is a three day annual event in March. The first two days are at Moon Marble Company in Bonner Springs, Kansas (close to Kansas City). Those days there are 20 or so marble artist who demo marble making throughout the day and also sell marbles. This year one of our SLLS members, Fred Linders was a participating artist. Pictured below is the demo marble he made there. You can also watch the Marble Crazy on Youtube. The third Marble Crazy day is hosted by the Kansas City Marble Collectors Club at a local hotel, where you can buy antique or contemporary marbles. They also have marble identification. Marble Crazy 2015 is over, but you may want to attend 2016. Check out Moon Marbles’ website for more info.
