During the fabulous Obon Festival in July, my husband and I popped into Wunderboy Glass and Mechanica in Japantown (San Jose) and happened upon them doing live glassblowing. The photos below were from that day, July 12th. Pics weren’t planned so were taken with my treo – quality not the best but hope you enjoy them nonetheless!


Today I got an email from them, stating that Wunderboy Glass and Mechanica is hosting a live glassblowing this Friday evening at 8pm; it will be hosted at Art Object Gallery in Japantown – a great area full of shops and restaurants, so go early and enjoy a meal in the neighborhood first. (Address: 592 North Fifth Street San Jose, CA 95112) Since we enjoyed watching them, I wanted to let you know about it too.

Additionally, Also on friday evening, in the Art Object Annex Gallery, you will also be able to see and purchase our glass work along with work by some of the South Bay Areas best known artists. Pieces by Luis Gutierrez, Reid Winfrey, Sara Cole, Joe Sax, Randy Shiroma, Ken Matsumoto, Mario Uribe and Rachel Lazo.


You will also have the opportunity to preview work bymembers of the Women’s Caucus for Art, whose opening will occur on Saturday from 6-9pm in the Art Object Main Gallery.  If you’re anywhere in Silicon Valley, this is a worthwhile event!
