With the opening of the Chihuly Collection on Downtown St. Pete’s Beach Dr., learning the art of glassmaking has become an “it” thing to do. Some are even starting to call St. Petersburg a “glass city” and, as we see it, there’s nothing better than functional art.
Wine, champagne, martini or margarita? Pick a color and create the glass of your choice under the direction of Josh Poll and David Walker. The duo known as Zen Glass are regulars at the Saturday Morning Market and their pieces are sold at both the Vinoy’s Ami Jewelers and Museum of Fine Art.
However, glassmaking sessions can be a little pricey. So this deal for a half-hour session, including supplies, makes the perfect gift or the perfect opportunity to create that gift for the “one who has everything.” Maybe make it a family or group affair?
Go ahead, find the inner artist in yourself and then say “cheers” for a job well done.
