Pizzichillo & Gordon Spring Art Glass Studio Sale One Day Only

Pizzichillo glass
 Pizzichillo & Gordon Spring Art Glass Studio Sale. Saturday, May 4, 2013. Oakland.

Collectors of contemporary art glass, or anyone looking for a unique and memorable gift, should set aside some time this weekend for shopping. High quality art glass at a discount is not your every day deal. With Mother’s Day on May 12th and the wedding season upon us, no time like the present to deal track.

With this sale in particular, you get what you pay for. Translation – don’t expect, even at 50% off, to approach a mass-produced product’s price. This is hand crafted art. On the other hand, if you are lucky enough to find something you love at 50% off or even 30% off consider it a deal tracked.

THE DEAL:

Oakland glass artists Bruce Pizzichillo and Dari Gordon, are opening their studio to the public for their annual spring sale. For one day only you can view and buy one-of-a-kind vases, bowls & sculpture that will blow you away.

Pizzichillo’s and Gordon’s work has been exhibited nationwide as well as in Canada, Europe and Japan. Their studio has recently been featured in several books including Lark Books’ 500 Glass Objects, and on public television, highlighting their newest works. I have seen their work at museum gift shops across the country as well as high-end stores and galleries including Sausalito’s Petri’s Gallery.

The sale will include new pieces, one-of-a-kind works, as well as several unique first-quality discontinued pieces at 50% off, and of course studio seconds at bargain prices. Expect to pay $25 to $90 for small vases, bowls and tumblers. Larger bowls and vases will run between $150 to $375.

MY TAKE:

The glass art from this studio is just plain gorgeous. The artists are in the studio, and can answer questions and talk about their work.

Art glass lovers put this sale on your “must-do” list. I have done some serious damage shopping at earlier Pizzichillo’s & Gordon’s open studio sales and am happy to report my pieces are completely intact. Hope that doesn’t jinx me…
