A visit to the Glass Studio & Hot Shop is an opportunity to get behind the scenes and observe resident glass artists creating unique works of art. Watch one of our glass demonstrations as the artist will take you through the process of creating a one of a kind piece of art glass. From gathering the molten glass from the furnace, to working it on the pontil pipe and glory hole, to its final cool down process in the annealing kiln, you will have a new appreciation for this art form that is centuries old. View the gaffer blowing glass, while the assistant narrates in detail the science behind glass, the artistic vision guiding the process and all of the steps involved as the work is being produced.
