LACONIA - Laconia Historical and Museum Society will hold its May Lecture Program on Monday, May 19, featuring Master Crystal Cutter, Pepi Herrmann. The Lecture program will be held at The Laconia Public Library at 7 p.m. in Rotary Hall.
In 1968, Pepi Herrmann came to the United States from Salzburg, Austria, determined to revive the lost art of cut glass. He has been recognized throughout the country and is widely considered a pioneer in reviving the art of crystal cutting in the United States. Now with more than 40 years' experience, Pepi Herrmann is one of the few independent Master Crystal Cutters in the U.S.
"I have had the privilege of watching his creative talent in progress on a couple of occasions during visits to his studio. I am thrilled to have Pepi Herrmann present to our Society as I have always been captivated by the beauty of his work." Says Brenda Kean, LHMS Executive Director.
