Adopt-a-Glass-Pet Day

August 31, 2019
The Shops

Known for her curiously cute and thoroughly whimsical glass animal creations, Catherine Labonté will sign “birth certificates” for all of the glass animals “adopted” during Adopt-a-Glass-Pet Day. Birth certificates will include a drawing of each animal and a name chosen by the adoptive parent. Adoptions and signings with the artist will take place from 1 to 4 pm.

Following the glass pet adoptions in The Shops, Labonté will stay into the evening as a Guest Artist. Complete your day by seeing Labonte work, along with our Hot Glass Demos Team, to debut a new, never-before-seen animal during her demonstration in the Amphitheater Hot Shop.

Can’t make it? Catherine Labonté's guest artist demonstration will be live-streamed online at from 6 to 7:30 pm. Plus, you can purchase any Catherine Labonté glass animal and Catherine herself will hand sign the “birth certificate” and personalize each glass pet with the name of your choosing. These pieces will be held until August 31 and will be shipped after the event. Contact The Shops for more details.
