Michelle Lillie at Lillie Pad Studios has been busy creating and teaching blown glass, silversmithing, and ceramics in her tricked-out barn in Millersville.
I took an introductory hot glass class with her this week, and, although this technique is clearly not my forte, she managed to calmly help me coax a semi-recognizable flower from my clunky blob of molten glass.
Other students’ work is much more impressive.
I try not to seethe with jealousy.
In very welcome news, she is opening a stand-alone gallery that will showcase her creations as well as other local artists in a variety of mediums. Lillie Pad Gallery is having a grand opening this Saturday, October 27, all day and into the night. There will be food and drink (of course!) as well as artist demonstrations, hands-on activities, and a raffle for artwork.
If you are out and about Anne Arundel County on Saturday, make a point to drop by. Lillie Pad Gallery has art at a wide variety of price points, so you may even find a piece for yourself or for Holiday giving.
To make this even more exciting, work from my very own Angel’s Share Studio will be on display!
I’ll be offering my kiln-fired glass through the Gallery. For those of you that have been asking where to find my pieces, here’s a great (and convenient) venue. I’m showing my one-of-kind fused glass jewelry at this time, with prices that are friendly for collectors (meaning, you can indulge yourself when it is hard to decide on just one).
So please visit Lillie Pad Studio and Gallery. Support local business. Support local artists. And have a great weekend!0 Be the first to Like this
