Lots happening in October!

October = Saturday blown glass pumpkin making demonstrations!!
Well as always we get pretty fired up in the fall. The furnaces get turned on after a 6-8 week summer break. This time of the year we open our studio on Saturdays from 10am-2pm for glassblowing demonstrations. And October is especially fun because we make lot's of pumpkins!
If you visit you might notice that all the colors outside begin to reflect the colors of our hot shop inside. No one can deny that the cool weather makes us extra happy to gather around the fires to make glass. 

Saturday October 1 from 10-4 we will be celebrating Maine Craft Weekend.  
We and our team of glass blowers will create blown glass right before your very eyes. 
For a festive twist on the day of celebrating craft, the studio of Atlantic Art Glass will be turned into a glass pumpkin patch as molten glass is gathered out of the furnace, blown and hand formed into pumpkins on the end of a blowpipe. The warmth of the fiery arts, the gallery bedecked with fall color, and the making of a blown glass pumpkins charms visitors of all ages.
As a special treat you will meet the talented and hard working Jacquelyn Jenson, who is the 2016 Maine Craft Apprentice Program recipient. Get a sneak peak at her delightful blown glass work as she finalizes her seven month apprenticeship with master glass blower, Linda Perrin.
