Summer Breezes Art and Anniversary Sale

You're invited to visit Nourot Studio and see the art works in "Summer Breezes" by six women artists on display through September 15th.
There is also another reason to visit: Nourot Glass is celebrating 35 years in business this month. It seems like, well, another age when the studio first fired up in 1974. Then we did not know what we did not know and that probably was a good thing.
Now the studio has son Nicholas Nourot, 26, making glass along side of the "maestro". Please visit and give them your congratulations on 35 years in business. Blowing demonstration on Youtube.
Thursday August 20th from 4:30--7PM there will be a Benicia Chamber Mixer and you are invited to come celebrate and mix with the artists that are represented in the lovely "Summer Breezes" art show that is hanging now. Since June the furnaces have been off to economize (PG & E will not accept enthusiasm as payment as of yet). Now we are firing up: that means hot glass again and many new works by the famous artisans of Nourot Studio.
While you are there take a peak at the custom jobs that are in the pipeline: delicate soft yogurt cups in mint, pink and yellow for Big Spoon Frozen Yogurt Shops and also Corporate Awards for many new customers, etched with their corporate logo and personalization.
Social Group? Brownie Troup? This fall is a good time to schedule a tour of the Benician Glass studio of Nourot. See our tourist website.
