Glass can be exquisite in its myriad forms, from the ornate windows of a Gothic cathedral to the crystalline webbing of a freshly vandalized windshield. Reflect on beauty with this Groupon.

Teachers impart the art of glass fusion during classes in which super-heated kilns melt mosaics of layered and stacked glass frits, powders, pulled stringers, and iridescent shards into a single patterned piece of art. Using slumping techniques, artists take their piece and reheat it multiple times to shape it around a mold, ultimately producing a plate or really fun catapult fodder. Classes include all materials, instructions, and firing assistance.
McMow Art Glass
Master craftsmen lead the production team at McMow Art Glass, bringing experienced craftsmanship to each new project that the 9,000-square-foot studio takes on. A group of 25 employees with art degrees from all over the country assist the veterans, and together they produce an array of fine glass items that range from classic stained windows to carvings, etchings, and mosaics for residences and commercial buildings. When not combining liquid bits of color into cold plates of art for clients, the staff teaches classes to students of all skill levels. Class topics start with the basic skills of fusion and slumping, and ultimately cover more advanced techniques such as how to repair a broken vase after using it as the ball in a harmless game of rugby.
