Visit The Liquid Glass Company At The Historic Colony Olivenhain Crafts Fair

Authentic Merchandise Made By The Vendor

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.

An Historic Experience.

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.

  • Saturday, November 12th, 2016.
  • 9am to 3pm
  • The Old Meeting Hall

Auction Gala and Celebration of Glass

Cow Skull | Glass art created by Dan McStocker | Liquid Glass Company

ARTISTS ARE STUDENTS OF LIFE

The Pilchuck Glass School helps novice, inspiring and professional artists, such as myself, explore the creative use of glass in art and design. Each summer Pilchuck offers three dozen, one to three week courses designed to help participants expand their skills working with established artists and instructors. This past summer I had the wonderful opportunity to work with world renowned glass artists from Italy, an experience I will never forget.

My participation with Pillchuck courses and workshops have helped me explore my art fueling incredible growth in my artistic design and insight. I am proud to participate in The Pilchuck Glass School Auction Gala and Celebration Of Glass event. The connection they form between artists, supporters and accomplished glassmakers is priceless.

My artwork included in this auction is titled, "Cow Skull" It is blown, cold-worked, hot-sculpted and sandblasted glass.

Please visit my website to view an online catalog of my other glass art.

Spring Trip to Alaska INSPIRING!

GLASS INSPIRATIONS DISCOVERED IN ALASKA!

This spring I had the good fortune of taking a once in a lifetime trip to Alaska.  Best vacation ever.  The breath taking beauty of mountains, rivers and glaciers, the snowboarding and hiking, the awesome scenery, my friends, new acquaintances and new adventures will never be forgotten.   

Did you know that the part of Alaska where we were located has one of the largest populations of bald eagles in the world? Astounding natural beauty.

Vacations are the best source for glass sculpture ideas and new glass creations! Browse my store on the Liquid Glass Company website to see how my art is inspired by the natural world.
