Cats and bats and witches
are flying through the air"
-from a 1930's postcard-
Don't you just love the way Marissa gave 'pumpkin' and 'curry' a fearsome and menacing but oh so adorable air? She did her artwork by means of a black Sharpie Pen! Comes right off with Windex.
Come down to one of the stores to catch a glimpse of these boo-tiful little vessels.
Next week, we will share with you the terrifyingly tasty haunted gingerbread house made by the talented mom of Alexus (University Village glassybaby gal superstar). If that doesn't get you in the mood for thrills and chills, nothing will.
Lee is fresh from a foray down south to Little Rock, Arkansas where she shot a few segments with PBS luminary P. Allen Smith for his show "P. Allen Smith's Garden Home":
Here is an exerpt overheard from their conversation:
"glassybaby are beautiful with things from your yard," merrily observed Lee.
"We say from the garden here. The yard is for chickens," Allen rejoined!
Good to know! Good to know!
glassybaby lit up Allen's magnificent Moss Mountain Farm. Dozens of little shelves were built just for glassybaby in the building he calls the 'Octagon'.
As the sun went down, the Octagon was aglow with the light of glassybaby as it truly became a sanctuary in the garden.
The cameras caught the whole magical setting which will be shared on upcoming episodes of Allen's nationally syndicated show. Stay tuned for show dates, y'all!
Respected gb glassblower Tyler reports that October has been a stellar month for the denizens of our hot shop, i.e., our revered blowers.
With glassybaby friends looking on, Tyler and Ryan ran the Portland Marathon on Sunday the 9th, with times of 3:32.10 and 4:15 respectively. Good on ya dudes!
Many of our glassybaby glassblowing employees were represented in the Pilchuck Glass School Auction, which is known as the largest worldwide glass event of the year. Sean and Armelle had works in the live auction and there were about twenty of our glassblowers in the silent auction including Tyler, Lisa, Morgan, Ashley, Andy, Sasha, Mikey, Dylan, Nick, Carrie and several others. Tyler's piece was featured in the Nordstrom window at Sixth and Pine for the month leading up to the auction.
Other news from the hot shop is the impending arrival of Sean and Armelle's baby next month and word from Rachel, who is in Iceland for a 39 day artist residency!
Fantastic for all of you! We feel so fortunate to have such talented and devoted fellow gb-ers. We are so proud of you and the work you do!
As Halloween closes in (and I certainly hope! you know what you are going to be!), I must tell you a riddle a savvy young friend of mine asked:
Q: Why do demons and ghouls hang out together?
-are you ready?-
A: Because demons are a ghouls best friend! (You silly!!)
That's all for now,
