April Newsletter From Mill City Glass Works

 

 

Hi everyone! It’s been a while since my last newsletter. Long enough to say I have a new addition to my family, my son Leon, who is minutes away from learning to crawl already. And Luca is now almost 3 years old! We have been busy here at Mill City Glassworks, perfecting new sculpture designs and teaching classes. Have a look below at what’s in store in the near future.
