TYLER GLASS GUILD SALE This Friday and Saturday 03/26 and 03/27

Featuring cast glass jewelry, hand blown vases, tumblers, and candle holders

This coming Friday and Saturday (March 26 + 27), the Tyler Glass Guild will hold its first sale of the spring semester. Proceeds from the sale fund our Visiting Artists Program.

This semester, the juniors and seniors were assigned to work in groups of 2 – 3 to design a production item or line of items. Emphasis was placed on developing and refining a concept, quality of design and fabrication, and the economics of producing the item in a large quantity. This project came from our desire to help students begin to prepare for their futures as practicing artists, and how they might support their studio practice.

Today’s Featured Production Line: BUBBLEWEAR

Cast glass jewelry by Victoria Ahmadizadeh, Abby Freeman, and Megan Hughes. This whimsical jewelry is cast from everyday packaging materials including bubble wrap and packing peanuts. Various colors and sizes available; all come with a sterling silver chain. Prices: $30 - $35ea.
