Nick Parrendo, a Lifetime Achievement Award member of the American Glass Guild (AGG), was greatly impressed by the way that George William Sotter, a famous, well-accomplished glass painter, conducted his business. Parrendo remembers how Sotter shared his techniques and enlisted the help of other studios that were not selected for the commission. AGG members have recognized Parrendo for practicing and passing on these practices in his own business.
