Summer Sketching (Simon Pearce Glassblowing)
Yesterday, I took the sketching class to the Simon Pearce workshop in Quechee, Vermont. Blowing Glass is a beautiful process to watch and a wonderful drawing exercise. It was a challenge for everyone to capture the process. These are a few of my better sketches.
The shop has been closed for the past nine months due to damage from Irene. The entire area was floor where they blow the glass was under water. There is still great deal to be done, but the workshop has been open for two weeks now. The remodeled room was wonderful to see. If you are in the area, I would encourage everyone to stop in and see the work.
