Open House this Saturday!

Ready to see 2,000 degree clear glass transformed into something else entirely? Stop by DC GlassWorks (5346 46th Ave, Hyattsville, MD, 20712) this Saturday from 12:00 to 5:00 pm!

As part of the annual Gateway Arts District Open Studio Tour you can get a behind the scenes look at it all and chat with some fab local artists. I'll also have a community craft project going in my studio and I'd love your help with it!


Bubble from class three with my Beginning Glassblowing students at DC GlassWorks.

This was our first night working with a blowpipe to test our newfound skills at gathering glass from the furnace, using blocks and working with tools like the steel marver and jacks.

Next week we'll follow (most of) the steps from this list to make cylinders!


Caterpillars and snowmen from class one with my Beginning Glassblowing students at DC GlassWorks!

Class one was all about gathering out of the 2,000 glass furnace, turning and trying out tools & equipment for the first time.

Tonight we're introducing blocks to shape the glass (and getting a taste of color with paperweights!).
