  • Ohio City Glass
    With the aid of a furnace, blowpipe and punty, molten glass is ready to be bent into a huge variety of shapes or blown up like a super hot balloon. At Ohio City Glass, classes teach amateurs how to perform these artistic feats. Teacher Daniel Miller helps beginners every step of the way, showing them how to use glassblowing tools and how to manipulate the glass to bring their ideas to fruition. By building a foundation, students can create glass sculptures from spherical ornaments to bowls, vases, and drinking glasses.

  • Joy Machines Bike Shop
    After spending a lifetime pedaling their way from point A to point B, friends Alex Nosse and Renato Pereira made the logical step to point C––their own bicycle shop. They have been recognized in Cleveland Magazine and Scene Magazine as one of the best shops in the city due to their earnest passion for cycling and commitment to making bike riding as accessible as possible with a broad, affordable fleet of frames from brands such as Linus and Redline. To help keep rides rolling smoothly, they thoroughly tune up bikes and advise prospective bike buyers on which styles are suited for rocky roads and which ones just like to snuggle.

  • Glass Bubble Project
    Glass Bubble Project's owners Mike Kaplan and Chris McGillicutty are business partners, friends, and working artists. Beginning in 1998, they repurposed their garage space into a working studio where professional artists and students create side by side, firing delicate one-of-a-kind masterpieces—and, according to Cleveland Magazine, the occasional grilled cheese sandwich—in the shop's 2,000-degree furnace. Their glass-blowing and welding classes teach adults and children to create one-of-a-kind artwork as nearby artists at work bolster creativity. Besides classes, the studio invites guests to watch their free public demonstrations and grants private studio time to artists in need and broken bottles looking for a fresh start. The shop's resident artists craft and sell sconces, chandeliers, and vases from recycled glass and repurposed metal. Nicknamed “Clevetion Glass” to simultaneously lampoon delicate Venetian glass and celebrate Cleveland's heartiness, their blend of industrial parts and elegant glasswork toughens up the décor of private residences and commercial buildings, such as the Ritz Carlton, all across the country.
