On the Road with Waterville Creates! Part 2: Tandem Glass in Dresden Mills

Many of us are lamenting the limitations of travel this summer. Thankfully we live in a state of extreme beauty with many fascinating places to visit. Here at WC!, we realize there are numerous destinations off the beaten path where we can explore Maine’s incredible art, artists, and natural landscape. The On the Road series is designed to explore areas that are art destinations in their own right and/or sites where we can create our own works of art.

Since 2006 Terrill Waldman + Charlie Jenkins have been creating unique hand blown glass in a saltbox barn on the shores of the Eastern River in mid-coast Maine. Each artist has over 30 years of experience with this beautiful and challenging medium. Their individual works have been shown nationally. In addition to their own glasswork and their in-tandem collaboration, they design and fabricate custom blown glass for artists and architects. Join us on our visit to the Tandem Glass Gallery located in a 2000 square foot space in Dresden Mills, Maine.

For more info on their work: https://www.tandemglass.com/

Tune in to our Facebook Page at 1pm Friday and look for our Facebook premiere! The video will also be saved in our video section for viewing at any time after the Facebook premiere.
