Storyland: A Trip Through Childhood Favorites Summer 2020

Vetro has paired up with the GCVB to help promote Storyland: A Trip Through Childhood Favorites an exhibit held this summer at the Grapevine Tower Gallery.

Though this educational reading initiative Vetro hopes to encourage all young parents and children to check out one of our personal favorite children’s books!

The image to the right is David Gappa, owner and lead glassblower reading to his son his favorite book, Elmer, The Patch Work Elephant.

This book has not only encouraged Gappa’s son to start reading on his own at the very young age of four but has also inspired our glassblowers to create Glass sculpted Elephants.
