Here are a few more photographs of the work featured at this past summer’s garden walk!
Pyrex glass and Wesson oil have the same index of refraction, so a small test tube filled with oil set into a larger container of oil will “disappear”.
Baron Glassworks will be featured and participating in “All Gardens, Great and Small”, a self-guided tour of 8 beautiful gardens in Northville and Novi, put on by The Gardeners of Northville & Novi Garden Club, “The No-No’s”.
Come enjoy vendors, refreshments, 50-50 raffle and access to the Northville Art House.
Central location is the Northville Art House:
215 Cady Street
Northville, MI 48167

Olympic Color Rods (http://www.glasscolor.com) has a sale going on right now, and Annette has kindly agreed to help coordinate a group order. This is a good opportunity to get a favorite color or try and expand your color palette.
If you would like to order your own supply of glass, please send Annette an email by this coming Wednesday, February 15th. Be sure to include ‘Glass Order’ in the subject line.
In the email, include the Number, Name, Size, Sale Price/KG, Quantity (in KG), and Total Cost for your choices. For example:
Note that the sale price may not show until you use the Quantity selector. Also, the minimum quantity is a KG, about 2.2 lbs. If you would like less than a KG, send an email to the list indicating the color(s) you want and see if anyone is interested in splitting with you.
In addition to your total cost of glass, you will be responsible for an appropriate portion of the shipping cost, based on your total order weight.
Payment is due at time of pickup. This order will go in by February 20th to get the sale price, so the glass will probably be at the studio late that week or early the next.
