SCHOOLS OUT

These two fish stand guard at the Boyer Glassworks Studio and Gallery. It is their job to watch over the area, tell a few jokes and alert people when their parking meters are about to expire. The shop is owned by Harry and Kathleen Boyer. He creates beautiful pieces of handblown glass many of which are one of a kind creations acquired by collectors and discriminating buyers. It is fascinating to stop by and watch Harry create marvelous things from molten glass. If you are ever in the area stop by, but you may want to bring a sardine and extra change for the meter. The fish will thank you for it.

  2. Molten glass is magic, when treated by the right person.

  3. I do like glass that is worked by a master. It is soul searching art if I ever saw it.

    Your visit will count and help me Make History.

  8. They are people watchers for sure. I love glass art. Are you going to take on an inside tour.

    I live right down the road from The Pilchuck Glass School started by Dale Chihuly. It is a very rustic place way up in the woods. Very hippyish but very, very professional at the same time.

    Feed the fish for me. Thanks. MB

  10. These fishes are more refined and urbane of the mass produced dumb kind I posted yesterday! I'm a bit envious... Nice photo and, as always, funny note.

  14. Really great sculpture. Made by talented artists only exceeded by the photog who captured the creatures in all their glory.

  15. These are very attractive sculptures. You should buy one for your front yard! I have a former student who has made a very successful living and good reputation in glasswork. Haven't been to his studio for awhile, but this reminds me to get there again soon.
