Glassblowing on 5th Avenue

February 7, 2019

6:30 - 8:30

 701 5th Ave S

Naples Players Courtyard 

The Naples Players,  in collaboration with Conrad Williams, a Dale Chihuly trained glass artist, is providing the public an opportunity to experience the art of blown glass in motion. On Feb 7th, 2019 from 6:30- 8:30 Conrad will set up his mobile glassblowing studio in courtyard of the Naples Players on 5th Avenue and walk the audience through the creation of one of his larger works. During the evening, Conrad will also walk a student through the creation of an ornament and a small bowl, an experience available to the public by appointment at his private Naples studio as well as on Thursdays and Saturdays at the Ritz Carlton Beach Resort. Conrad’s refined artistic skills alongside his unique ability to articulate his process, make for a one of a kind event. Come see the vision of a skilled artist come to life and stick around to see what is possible for even a first time glassblower. In the spirit of exposing the public to this ancient art, this unique demonstration will be at no charge and all ages are welcome to come watch the magic of molten glass in transformation.  

 

A small showing of Conrads work will be on display on site, with more pieces available down the street at Peach Tree Designs on 5th Avenue South, as well as Judith Liegeois Designs and St-Tropez on 3rd Street South. Conrad will be assisted by his wife and fellow nationally acclaimed artist , Erin Williams.
