Curtis Fest Artisan Spotlight: Magical Alchemy Designs

Colors glass Mexican folk art

Rachel Warren, owner/designer at Magical Alchemy Designs has always loved colored glass.  Once a jewelry designer, and former dental assistant, she decided to stretch her creative legs and explore a completely new medium.  Her deep love for Mexican folk images are reflected in her work. Her handpainted glassware designs use acrylic glass paint which is durable enough to stand up to washing. Fun and functional!

Products such as wine bottle lanterns, talavera tile magnet, shallow catch-all bowls, shot glasses and hanging lanterns will adorn her booth.

About Curtis Fest

Curtis Fest returns to William Curtis Park on Sunday, Aug. 27. More than 60 artisans are expected to show their work at the 11th annual event, which will take place from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the north end of the park under the beautiful tree canopy. Curtis Fest has become a Sacramento favorite, and many premier artists have joined the lineup this year.

This free, public event includes food from award winning chef Keith Breedlove of the Culinerdy Cruzer food truck along with delicious street tacos from the Turnt Up food truck. John Merriman, Dianna and the Cherry Kings and the Ranell Carpenter Band will perform.

An expanded petting zoo returns this year as well as the climbing station, and the children’s fairy. Curtis Fest will be followed by Music in the Park from 6-8 p.m.
