Just who (or what) is Simon Pearce?

Posted By NEFMA, Wednesday, December 18, 2013

Simon Pearce is a highly talented entrepreneur and master craftsman of glassblowing and pottery. An Irish-American, he learned his craft in Kilkenny Ireland and opened his first US factory in Quechee, Vermont in 1981. The facility, powered by hydroelectricity on the Ottauquechee River, also includes a showroom, fabulous restaurant and glass-blowing demonstrations.

Simon Pearce glass is highly collectible and coveted among those who appreciate fine craftsmanship. His works have been gifted to foreign dignitaries and presenters of the Academy Awards.

Lucky for us he chose New England to start his business and our Winter Conference is being held right around the corner–how convenient!

Take a tour at Simon Pearce on Thursday, January 23 from 1:00 to 2:00 p.m. and join us later in the evening to hear our guest speaker, Clay Adams, CEO of Simon Pearce.
