We’ve got new Baron Glassworks Studio Sessions available starting May 7!
For the curious novice who’s been looking for a great one-day introduction to glass, we offer the following one-day classes through Ann Arbor RecEd.
Our mission is to create a diverse environment where people from all walks of life can satisfy their curiosity and creativity using glass as the primary medium. Among the people who are served at this studio:
- The curious novice
- Established artists exploring new media
- Aspiring artists and artisans in need of incubation
- Art Collectors seeking a deeper understanding of the workings of glass
- The Renaissance man or woman who recognizes a good opportunity when he or she sees one!
If you’re in the southeastern Michigan area and love glass, you should check out the exhibit going on at Habatat Galleries in Royal Oak!
It starts this Saturday, April 27th and runs through May 25, 2013.

Chelsea Community Hospital recently completed a multimillion dollar expansion started in 2011. As part of the new expansion, the new space is filled with carefully selected artwork. Members of the hospital’s art council, which is composed of a group of community members, used an outdoor, nature theme when selecting pieces used to decorate the facility.
‘Succulent’ being finished at the studio.
As part of that theme, Annette Baron was commissioned to create a piece, shown here at the studio and titled Succulent, which is now on permanent display in the Atrium, the new main entrance to the hospital. You can visit it and all the other artwork in person at Chelsea Community Hospital, at 775 S. Main Street, Chelsea MI 48118.
Graham Gerdes from Community High School in Ann Arbor stopped in to the glass studio a few weeks ago, and had this to say about it:
Hot, dangerous, delicate and beautiful. At Baron Glassworks in Ypsilanti, MI, local artists are fusing together their ideas and inspirations to form functional, and aesthetic art.
Annette Baron, sole proprietor and founder of Baron Glassworks, has been blowing glass for 23 years. “I have had the studio for 16 years. It was 1997, and then I lit the furnace Nov. 24 1998. This furnace has been on ever since,” said Baron.

Annette does take younger students on an individually assessed basis: please contact the studio if you’re looking for a wonderfully engaging and creative outlet for your young artist.
Thanks for stopping by, Graham!
