Bright yellow signs will appear along Vermont's roads Memorial Day Weekend, guiding visitors to the studios of craftspeople and fine artists across Vermont during the Vermont Craft Council’s 25th annual Open Studio Weekend on May 27th and 28th.

Readsboro Glassworks, the glassblowing studio of Mary Angus and K. William LeQuier, can be found in Readsboro, a small town in southern Vermont alongside the Deerfield River. Working together in the glass studio they built in a one hundred year old mill building in the village center, both artists create their own distinctive work. LeQuier's complex glass sculptures are both powerful and fluid, capturing the harmonious and erratic forces found in nature, while Angus creates exquisite blown glass vessels with graceful forms and soft colors.

Mary and Bill will be welcoming visitors to their studio Saturday and Sunday, May 27th and 28th, from 10am to 5pm. Stop in to see their latest work and watch one of the glassblowing demonstrations ongoing throughout the weekend.

Readsboro Glassworks is located at 6954 Main Street, RT 100, (lower level) in Readsboro, Vermont, map location #125. For more information about Readsboro Glassworks and Open Studio Weekend call 802-423-7706. Look for the bright yellow signs directing visitors to each studio!

The 25th annual Vermont Open Studio Weekend tour is presented by the Vermont Crafts Council. The Vermont Crafts Council publishes a free map booklet with directions to participating studios, available online at www.vermontcrafts.com.

Aurora IvyMary Angus creates objects that show the beauty of glass - its translucency, the way glass moves when it's molten, the effects of color, light, and shadow on a form. Her pieces show the beauty and fluidity of molten glass through the graceful curves and proportions of the blown vessel. She uses subtle relief or more sculptural carving to highlight the effects of light and shadow on the form.

"I especially love working with the perfume bottle form, I feel it is a very sensual piece, intimate in scale, a vessel meant to contain fragrance and evoke memories."
