READSBORO0 Visit Readsboro Glassworks during the Vermont Fall Open Studio Weekend, October 14 and 15, from 10 am to 5 pm.

In the Deerfield Valley area of southern Vermont is Readsboro, a small town on Route 100, surrounded by rugged mountains and home to Readsboro Glassworks, the glassblowing studio of K. William LeQuier and Mary Angus. Working together in the glass studio they built in a 100-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.

They will be welcoming visitors to their studio on Saturday, October 14, and Sunday, October 15, from 10 am to 5 pm. Glassblowing demonstrations will be ongoing throughout the weekend with hand blown glass by Angus and glass sculpture by LeQuier on display and for sale.

Look for the bright yellow Open Studio signs directing visitors to the studio.
