Rich and Kersti Lasiewski will have several demos during the tour, so be sure to stop by their Arroyo Grande studio (#213, page 49 of the Open Studios Art Tour catalog). Rich makes glass beads in a torch and may include methods of decorating the beads for anyone interested. In addition, both Rich and Kersti will explain making fused glass pieces and are glad to discuss different methods of casting glass. Their kilns will be set up for the discussions.
