Mary Angus began working with glass at Southern Connecticut State University in 1973. After graduating in 1975, Angus set up her first studio in Branford, Connecticut with three friends from school. In 1983, Mary and her husband, fellow glass artist K. William LeQuier, moved to the small town of Readsboro in southern Vermont. Both artists share the glass studio that they built in a 100 year old mill building in the village center. Mary's glass is exhibited and sold in many fine craft galleries and juried craft shows nationwide, as well as through her own studio in Readsboro.
I create objects that show the beauty of glass the translucency, the way glass moves when it is molten, the effects of color, light, and shadow on a form. My pieces show the beauty and fluidity of molten glass through the graceful curves and proportions of the blown vessel. I feel it is a very sensual piece, precious and intimate in scale, a vessel meant to contain fragrance and evoke memories.- Mary Angus
