A perfect fit for The Liquid Glass Company! All items must be sold and made by the vendor, no resale or manufacturer goods are allowed. Items may be embellished, improved, re-purposed or home grown.
My glass art fits the bill perfectly for this fair. Not only are my pieces of glass art created and sold by yours truly, Dan McStocker, the art of hand blown and sculpted glass is historic in itself.
The fair celebrates a colony established by European immigrants, mostly German, looking for a place to develop farm land and grow a homogeneous colony. Member's bought into the colony with the promise that each would receive parcels of land and a home while sharing common assets such as horse teams and plows with other members.
Their dream was shattered when they discovered the land lacked enough water to grow crops and they had been duped by a founding member that had taken advantage of them to receive a large commission for the sale of the land from the previous owners. The colony slowly declined as farm by farm was abandoned and ended in 1897. History was not done for Olivenhain as a new community evolved in place of the original colony.
Stop by the Colony Olivenhain Crafts Fair, experience some history, shop the many vendors and say hello to me at the Liquid Glass Company booth. A selection of my glass art will be displayed and offered for sale.
