Paul Simonette, resident glassblower at Enchanted Fredericksburg Ranch, is excited to open the only glassblowing hotshop in Fredericksburg where the public can watch glass art being made. Simonette and his wife, Holly, co-owners of the ranch, are excited to welcome Kevin Baker from KB Glass Art in San Diego, Cal. Baker has been a glass artist since 2005 and will be the Visiting Glassblowing Artist-In-Residence from Dec. 26 through Jan. 4, 2023.

“I am thrilled to welcome Kevin to Fredericksburg and blow glass with him again,” said Paul Simonette. They worked together in Spanish Village Art Center in San Diego. “We’re excited to join forces to create functional glass art, like vases and glasses, and make art together again.”

“Glassblowing is the art of coaxing molten glass into a desired shape; it’s a dance with a partner who is too hot to touch.” Baker said. “The process is difficult and uncertain, but the reward is the birth of a luminescent offspring of fire which serves as a beautiful record of its creation. I can’t wait to entertain Fredericksburg families and visitors with the amazing art of glassblowing and to help launch the new hot shop.”

The Simonettes also announced that their Purple Shack Makers Gallery at Enchanted Fredericksburg Ranch will be selling Baker’s work. His work can be seen at
