Virtual Adopt a Glass Pet Day

Wednesday, October 21, 2020


Adopt a Glass Pet Day is going virtual this year! Join us as Catherine Labonte debuts a brand new animal creation live at her hot shop in Canada. 

Known for her curiously cute and thoroughly whimsical glass animal creations, Labonte says of her work: "I use glass because of the simple lines, the brightness, its translucent and colorful nature as well as for the technical challenges. With it I hope to create objects that evoke laughter and wonder in order to lighten the heart."

Help us pick Cat's newest creation!

Send your ideas. Then tune in on October 21 to find out what the new animal is!
