“We’re excited to invite guests to join us in the creative environment of the Glass Academy’s 14,000-square-foot studio. It’s the perfect venue to raise public awareness and support for the Dearborn Community Fund which focuses on supporting innovative projects that add to the vibrancy of our city,” noted DCF Executive Director EmmaJean Woodyard.
“Whether you’ve been to the Glass Academy before or it’s your first visit, it’s always fascinating to watch the glass artists at work,” Woodyard said. “And especially during their holiday glass exhibit, you’ll find a bounty of beautiful, one-of-a-kind hand crafted glass pieces.”
The Gallery will be brimming with beautiful hand-carafted items, perfect for home decorating or holiday gifts. In addition to hand blown glass ornaments and signature glass icicles, handcrafted custom works such as paperweights, beer mugs, and signature piece Detroit Puddle, created by pouring hot glass over a sewer cap, will be available for purchase.
