Experience the art of glass blowing

Submitted By Erickson Arts

Have you ever wanted to go to Italy to watch Italian masters blow glass? Have you watched glass blowing done on TV and wished to see it in person? Well, now is your chance! No need to take a high-priced trip to Italy, we have a glass blower in our Tri-City area and she is hosting an ÒOpen StudioÓ on Saturday, November 11. You are welcome to come in and watch glass blowing, in actionÉ for free.

Erickson Arts in Union City is the studio of Gigi Erickson, who has been blowing glass for over 25 years. About 10 years ago, she set up her studio in Union City after working for various glass artists in the Santa Clara Valley. Erickson not only blows glass but also makes stained glass windows, which she has done for over 40 years. Come visit her at her annual open studio event. There is no charge, but please keep your little ones close to you, as this is a glass studio.

As she demonstrates glass blowing, Erickson will take suggestions for color combinations and other ideas from the audience. Many finished items will be displayed and available for sale, including Christmas items. Experience a new and fun event on November 11!

Call (510) 579-5209 with any questions.
