Hope to see you Here!
p.s. Get locally made, fresh, warm cider doughnuts--while they last--both mornings too--mmmmm!

Bellows Falls, VT – Chris Sherwin, owner of Sherwin Art Glass, is proud to announce his participation in The Vermont Craft Council’s “Open Studio Weekend” on Memorial Day Weekend (May 23rd and 24th), and he’ll be open in his studio at 33 Bridge Street, in Bellows Falls, VT. Chris will be demonstrating his glassblowing techniques and serving refreshments 10am-5pm, throughout the weekend!
Chris brings the intriguing art of glassblowing and a high quality product to his small, New England hometown community. Sherwin Art Glass maintains uniqueness in the world of art glass with its combinations of torchwork design, signature backgrounds, and handmade and blown shapes. Local floral and nature themes are the focus of many of his designs and using his torchworking skills, Chris showcases some of the essence of the beautiful and unique New England flowers and landscapes in his glass vases and paperweights. His hand-sculpted animals, including Cardinals, Owls, 4 styles of Bears, and Frogs are among his most popular and sought after designs!
Sherwin Art Glass is a glass studio committed to excellence in quality and unique composition of glass in various handmade forms. Chris Sherwin is the sole proprietor and has over 20 years of professional experience in glass making. He combines the skills of production crystal glass making and the artistic torchwork design process, learned from two internationally renowned glass studios, into his own unique style. Chris has his pieces in over 35 galleries and museums nationwide and private collections all over the world.

Sherwin Art Glass offers a wide array of hand sculpted and blown glass products, showcasing both art and functionality. The product line is entirely locally “Made in Vermont”, and includes unique and collectible paperweights, vases, glass/stemware, animal and fruit sculpture, seasonal gifts and more!
The Glass Studio is designed and runs with environmental concerns in mind. The glass furnace, designed by Owen Dodge of Saxtons River, VT, runs on the hydro-electric power furnished by the local dam here in Bellows Falls, VT.

The Sherwin Art Glass Studio/Gallery is open for hot glass production, by Chance or Appointment, most days (except Sunday) from 10:00am-4:00pm. Chris regularly participates in “BF3F”--Bellows Falls’ 3rd Friday Art Walks, each month from 6pm-8pm for glassblowing demonstrations and sales, also serving refreshments.
