Marble #Collecting 12th annual #Marble Crazy in Bonner Springs

The Mirror / Slightly smaller crowd makes annual event more 'pleasant'
The 12th annual Marble Crazy, which kicked off Friday afternoon at Moon Marble Company in Bonner Springs, brought together marble artists and enthusiasts from across the country, just as it does every year.
Friday and Saturday of the event gave marble and glass artists the opportunity to display their hand-made marbles and to demonstrate for a fixed audience their own individual lamp-working, furnace and glass-blowing, and machine marble-making techniques. A total of 21 artists demonstrated over the weekend, traveling in from states that included Ohio, California and Minnesota.
“This is the best marble show in the United States now,” artist Dan Grumbling, Columbus, Ohio, said.
Each hour-long demonstration had audiences rapt with attention, and during the demonstrations, the artists went through and talked about the actual process of making a marble.
