You can now access the whole catalog for the Penland School of Crafts 30th Annual Benefit Auction online: right here. The work on the cover is by the remarkable Susan Taylor Glasgow (it’s sewn glass). Inside the catalog you’ll find pictures of more than 200 pieces in all media.
No matter where you are, you can place absentee bids on any of the auction pieces (complete information is here). This is a good thing, because the auction is more-or-less sold out. If you were thinking of attending the auction, please contact contact Jackie Head at 828-765-2359 x 112 or email@example.com to see if there are any seats left.
Whether you make it to the auction or not, you can still appreciate these great centerpieces made just for the event by glass artist Sally Prasch. Each table will be decorated with a glass horn and a glass rainstick (both are functional). At some point during the auction, we’re going to blow all the horns and make a loud sound.
