As the election season draws ever closer and the mudslinging grows ever intense, we have decided to join in the fun here at Snake Oil Glassworks! We’ll be throwing mud around with abandon and by mud we mean clay! Please join us in welcoming ceramic artist, Dave Webster, to our studio for a wonderful night of pottery! He’ll be bringing his pottery wheel and “throwing” all sorts of fun ceramics for everyone to see! Even the glassblowers have started to dip into the mud business a bit, mixing up the refractory and goop that will soon go inside glass furnace Number Three! So pop by Friday, July 6th from 6pm-9pm to check out our progress and watch Dave create ceramic works of art right before your eyes.

 

We hope to see you there,

 

Phil and Peg
