Lillie’s Glass On Exhibit

Posted by on Jan 2, 2013 in Custom Awards

Thom Lillie started blowing glass at

the early age of eight and was produc-

ing acceptable creations by the time he

was 12. Thom is a graduate of Southern

Tech and Salem Technical Institute in

Nevty Jersey where he received the

Outstanding Student Award in glass

blowing. He was associated with the

University  of Minnesota Glass Tech-

nologv Lab for five years constructing

glass apparatus  for science and re-

search.

 

Thom has the unique ability to con–

ceive an idea, sketch it for symmetry

and technique and finally transform it

into a tangible crystal sculpture. Many

of his recent designs have never been

attempted before and they present

challenges and development proce-

dures in rare and unfamiliar areas.

Pieces for the Cultural Arts Center

show beginning Jan. 9 have been spe-

cially created for the exhibit. Hours of

the show will be 9 a.m. until 5 p.m.

Monday through Friday. Lilly’s crea-

tions may also be seen at his Galleria

studio4 across from Cumberland Mall.
