DEARBORN – Furnace Design Studio will host the Glass Pumpkin Fest & Sale from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Oct. 17 at the Glass Academy, 25331 Trowbridge in Dearborn.
“This is not your typical fall pumpkin patch,” said Michelle Plucinsky, glass artist and co-owner of Furnace Design Studio. “There will be no real pumpkins for sale, rather an amazing array of one-of-a-kind sparkling glass pumpkins.”
More than 500 glass pumpkins, from opaque to transparent and from reflective to metallic, will be for sale along with decorative glass leaves and large hand-blown glass bowls.
“These pieces are truly collectibles and one-of-a-kind heirlooms that can be passed from one generation to the next,” Plucinsky said. “With Michigan’s beautiful fall season, they also make beautiful centerpieces for your home décor.”
In addition to the display and sale of glass pumpkins and other glass art in varying sizes, styles and colors, the public is invited to observe free glassblowing demonstrations, enjoy some Michigan cider and participate in drawings for custom made glass pumpkins.
Prices for the glass pumpkins begin at $35 each and $25 each for the glass leaves. Admission is free.
