Glass Sale!

April 16, 2010

I just want to remind anyone who might be in Ames this Saturday that the ISU glassblowing club, The Gaffers’ Guild, will be holding their annual VEISHEA sale from 10am-6pm in Old Sweeney (next to the water tower). Be sure to stop by, check out all the great pieces for sale, and watch some demonstrations. Our club will also be selling glass at the Art Mart sale from 10am(?) to 3pm. The Art Mart sale is located in the M-Shop at the Memorial Union. Besides our glass, there will also be pottery, prints, baskets, and jewelry for sale by local artists.

Here are some of my pieces that I will be contributing to the sale:

As part of the membership agreement, each glassblower is expected to donate half their pieces to be sold at VEISHEA and other sales. All of the proceeds then go back to the club to keep the furnace hot and full of glass. Most pieces are a steal at $5-30ish.
