Senator Angus King to Display Maine Glass Artist’s Loon Vase
- August 10, 2016
Montville, ME: A glass vase made by David Jacobson of Jacobson Glass Studio in Montville will be on display in Senator King’s office in Washington, D.C. The vase, part of Jacobson’s Loon Series, is made of black, white, and red glass tiles known as murrini, and was designed to represent the markings of the loon.
“I am honored to have my glass in Senator King’s office and how fantastic that Senator King believes in showcasing the work of Maine artists,” Jacobson said.
Jacobson met Senator King at the Penobscot Bay Chamber of Commerce Business Breakfast in May, where a conversation began about loaning a piece of Jacobson’s glass to Senator King’s office.
