Blowing Rock lived up to its name, dishing up a blustery wind and temperatures in the low 40's during the early morning set up for the art show. We were not geared appropriately for the weather and tempers ran hot while attempting to set up the tent with frozen digits. It appeared that none of the other artists were prepared for the weather either as many were attired in short-sleeves, shorts and Crocs. The wind was merciless and a few artists had to wrangle their wayward tents back into place and a couple of pieces of pottery were noisily dashed to the ground in a splintery splash of hardened clay. Thankfully Sassy Glass Studio's fantastic new tent weathered the wind with little disruption and we didn't experience any shattered glass. Whew!
Shortly after we had the booth ready for the art-loving public our prayers were answered and the sun broke through the clouds and the temperature climbed to that critical point where everyone begins complaining that it is too hot. It was the perfect day to venture out, head to the Park, wander around, look at the creations of the many artist's, and search for that perfect piece for a gift or just something new to display in the home. Many of our customer's were looking for unique wedding gifts and we were able to help them choose just the right piece. (Don't forget Sassy Glass Studio can custom create gifts for any ocassion!)
Sassy Glass Studio will be back at Art in the Park in Blowing Rock on June 14th so come back and visit us again or check out our schedule on the right to see where we will be next. Also, look for the newsletter later this month. Sassy will be hitting the beach in Jacksonville, FL for a little relaxation over the Memorial Day weekend. Relax and enjoy your holiday weekend too!

Everywhere I look, whether it is around the yard, on the road or in the market; bright colors and flowers look right back at me. I love color and flowers almost equally and have worked to incorporate both into my glass pieces. I created a collection of plates, bowls and art panels embellished with a flower motif that are sure to make your Spring, well, Springier. Here are of a couple of the pieces as well as a couple of new ones. Allan and I are on our way to Blowing Rock, North Carolina for the Art in the Park show on Saturday. The weather should be wonderful which will draw a great crowd. Be sure to check back for my show recap early next week. If you see any pieces on this blog that you would be interested in purchasing contact me and I can let you know if it is still available and if it isn't I can custom create a similar (or whole new) piece for you. Don't forget to send me your e-mail address to be added to the e-newsletter mailing list!
