Members of the Vermont Glass Guild will participate in “Vermont Blown Away,” a friendly glassblowing competition inspired by the Netflix series “Blown Away,” on Saturday, June 17, at 2 p.m., at Fire Arts Vermont in Brattleboro. Audience members of all ages are welcome to attend. Tickets are $10 (free for BMAC members). Space is limited. Register online at or call 802-257-0124, ext. 101.

Vermont Blown Away

“Vermont Blown Away” is presented in connection with “Glasstastic 2023,” a bi-annual Brattleboro Museum & Art Center (BMAC) exhibition of glass art based on children’s drawings of imaginary creatures. On view at BMAC from June 24 through October 9, “Glasstastic 2023” features 11 creatures situated within an immersive habitat designed by artist Cynthia Parker-Houghton.

At “Vermont Blown Away,” three-person teams of glass artists will create glass sculptures inspired by some of the nearly 500 drawings BMAC received for “Glasstastic 2023.” Teams will have 15 minutes to design a piece and one hour to complete it. The glass creatures will be auctioned off at a later date to raise money for the Vermont Glass Guild’s education fund.

Located at 485 West River Road (Route 30), Fire Arts Vermont is an art gallery featuring world-class glass art by master glass artist Randi Solin and the ceramic artists of Natalie Blake Studios. The glass works are surrounded by a carefully curated and evolving collection of unique gifts and jewelry from local artists.
