The cartoonish glass animals Catherine Labonté creates are always a technical challenge, but she hopes the objects will evoke laughter and wonder in the viewer.

Join us at The Shops on October 1, as artist Catherine Labonte hosts Adopt-a-Glass-Pet Day. 

Known for her curiously cute and thoroughly whimsical glass animal creations, Labonte will be on hand to sign "birth certificates" for all of the glass animals "adopted" during the event. In addition, she will draw a picture of each animal and sign the piece with a name chosen by the adoptive parent.
