Slow Burn Glass
When he was a ceramics student, Bryan Goldenberg was struck by the softness of hot glass and the clean lines that resulted from shaping it. He switched his artistic focus in 1995 and has been creating glass art ever since, settling down in 2006 in the 2,300-square-foot Slow Burn Glass studio he designed and built. The themes of color and lines are a steady thread throughout his work, whether he's exhibiting hand-blown glass bowls in galleries throughout the country or demonstrating how to mold a multihued light fixture out of glass and firefly essence during hands-on classes.

“We took the Christmas ornament class where you got a choice of one of three color frit mixtures. The instructor is doing most of the work and you are assisting and doing all the blowing yourself. Everyone gets a nice finished product in the end. It gets toasty hot in there! You pick up the finished ornament the next day. ”
