If you or your children are fans of art, the Royal Oak Clay, Glass and Metal Show, which has been rebranded to The Art of Fire in 2018, might be for you. At this unique art fest, check out over 100 different artists, specializing in metal, glass, clay and jewelry. Head on down to Royal Oak June 9-10, 2018 to experience this award-winning event first hand.
See a wide variety of art in this variety of mediums, ranging from beautiful handmade bowls and glasses to necklaces and sculptures. Watch metal being forged, glass being turned into pendants and even tiles being pressed and decorated.
Not only can you see them and watch artists create works, including the tile pressing with Leif Sporck at Booth 240 and glass blowing, but you can also check out fire performances by The Great Lakes Flow Festival at fourth and Washington and even create your own piece of art.
There will also be live music, food and, of course, awards given to the artists. Categories range from best in each category as well as Best of Show and the Award of Honor awards.
