Life at Glass Academy. Did you know we also have a wood and metal working shop in the back where we work on sculptures??

Some tools of our trade: the large white bowl is actually the container in the furnace where the glass melts. All the white buckets are filled with different shaped wood blocks in water, so they don’t dry out and crack,to shape glass. The last picture is a close up of our egg shaped block. Any questions on these photos and our processes just comment below.

Finally! It took a bit to get the video to hook up but here we go! Tell us what you think! Have you been to the Glass Academy before? Have you ever seen so many lampshades made in one day?! What are your thougths about the process?

05/30/2019

Inside the Oven is happening at 7pm tonight. We needed to pre-tape tonight so we will post a video on some custom lampshades we were making in the studio earlier in the week. We'll show you how to drill the hole, to get the lightbulb and fixture in the shade and also how the shades themselves were blown. Hang tight, the video is 15 minutes and seems to be taking some time to upload to FB.
