California Contributions: 50 Years of Studio Glass 

When: Sat., Nov. 10, 10 a.m.-6 p.m. and Sun., Nov. 11, 10 a.m.-6 p.m. 2012
Price: $15

According to the folks at industrial-art studio The Crucible (1260 7th St., Oakland), glass is a "hot, glossy, temperamental, and very sexy" art medium. But that hasn't always been the case; in fact, through the 1950s, it was viewed almost exclusively as an industrial material. The "Studio Glass" movement that opened the floodgates to glasswork as an art form began in 1962, and The Crucible will celebrate its fifty-year anniversary with a two-day glass-art festival on Saturday and Sunday, Nov. 11-12. Visitors can catch glass-blowing, casting, neon, and flame-working demonstrations from some of The Crucible's glass faculty, participate in workshops, view more than eighty pieces of glass art, and purchase gifts. 10 a.m.-6 p.m., $15 per day. 510-444-0919 or
