We had a great turn out for our October event at the Wimberley Glass Works. What an incredible art studio this is. We got to enjoy an amazing demonstration of how the artisans create these beautiful pieces of blown glass. We were invited to watch as these professional craftsmen create their works of art. From the beginning of the melted glass, to adding colors, blowing air into the piece to shape into the various designs, and finally to the cooling oven. Each piece has to cool very slowly – about 14 hours to prevent breaking. The gallery is filled with a large selection of pieces for sale. Members browsed and made purchases from the collection before we drove on to San Marcos to the Centerpoint Station for lunch.
