The Glass Canvas: Arts Night Out with Momo Glassworks

Arts Night Out with Momo Glassworks!
Friday, August 11, 5-8 pm

Join us in welcoming local artists Edo Mor and Rosario Torres—the duo behind Momo Glassworks—and their imaginative, mesmerizing jewelry for our August Arts Night Out event!

Edo and Rosario will be bringing along one-of-a-kind pieces as well as designs Pinch doesn't typically carry in the store; this unique array will be 20% off for the entire evening.

Of their work, Edo and Rosario say: "The process [is] a kind of mixed media collage, with glass as canvas, the kiln as vessel, and heat as maker of worlds. There is a pleasure in flirting with the unexpected—layering the glass with just enough complexity as to guarantee some kind of surprise (whether disappointing or elating) when the pieces are fired together and the heat awakens so many seemingly dead materials, and they converse together, the minerals and metals and glaze oxides and the glass itself, and their particular epiphany is preserved beneath the cooling vitreous surface."

Each glass piece is designed and made by hand in their Haydenville studio. 

Refreshments will be served!
