Greetings and Happy Holidays,

We want to say thank you to everyone that was able to donate during our membership drive challenge. While we didn’t reach our goal of $25,000, the amount that we did raise will be matched. If you would like to support us through our membership program you can do so by clicking HERE.

We have one more Walkup Workshop for this year. It will be on the third Friday, December 16th, and not the normal fourth Friday. Items will be ornaments in glass blowing, Santa hats in flame working, and snowflakes in kiln forming.

Don’t forget to give the gift of glass this season. We have a great selection of holiday themed items in the gallery looking for new homes. We also have gift certificates available that can be used for gallery purchases or classes.

Recipe of the Month
Time to Stuff It
Sprig Vessel by Susan Rankin

It’s about time to make up a batch of Stuffed Artichokes

I’m thinking that this weekend  I’ll mix up a big batch of this scrumptious concoction and stuff some artichokes — and maybe some stuffed peppers and mushrooms as well…

We’ve been doing these for years now — they’re a perennial favorite at our house.
And so pretty!  The artichokes look like giant flowers and make a meal all by themselves…
Once baked in the oven, they’re good warm or cold and make great leftovers.
