Watch the glassblowing process
READSBORO - Readsboro Glassworks will be open to the public and welcoming visitors to the studio Saturday and Sunday, May 28 and 29, from 10 am to 5 pm during the Vermont Crafts Council’s 30th annual spring Open Studio Weekend.
Mary Angus and Bill LeQuier, of Readsboro Glassworks, have been creating hand-blown glass and glass sculpture in their Readsboro studio since 1983. Their glass is exhibited in many galleries and juried shows nationwide and is included in numerous museum and private collections. On display during Open Studio Weekend will be carved glass sculptures by LeQuier and Angus’s hand-blown perfume bottles and bud vases, as well as the unique glass candy cane, icicle, and snowflake ornaments that the couple create together. Stop in to see their hand-blown glass and glass sculpture and watch one of the glassblowing and sandblasting demonstrations ongoing throughout the weekend.
