“Books, art, children, kiln-fired glass, and the amazing team of artists and educators from Brazee Studios and blue manatee. It’s a recipe like none I’ve ever seen for cooking up creativity in kids. A Toast to their remarkable vision!” - by Lani McGregor, Director, Bullseye Gallery / Partner, Bullseye Glass Co.
"From the googley eyed (sunny-side-up) eyes of “Happy Toast”, a spluttering of syrup to make “Mad Toast”, the upside down cheese-mouthed “Sad Toast”, this book is so clever and creative it is guaranteed to give the parents of the little reader a chuckle per page!" - Regina LaCaruba, Diapers-and-Daydreams.com Book Reviews
About the Artists:
Sandra Gross and Leah Busch have worked together for over fifteen years as artists, friends, and educators. They have formed a collective—Factory15—which specializes in modern-whimsical handmade glass products. Besides over 300 pieces of cast glass toast, they have created plates, cake stands, and chandeliers rich in pattern and color. When Busch and Gross are not creating glass art, you can find them teaching among the bees and butterflies at Brazee Street Studios.
