The owner seemed to complain more about politics and his neighborhood than talking about glass. I also took a glass making class in Cincinnati. They described the process in more detail and my glass pieces were a lot bigger.

The class is mostly lecture (about 2.5 hrs worth). Lots of interesting glass history and science explained during this time. Making the paper weight only takes about 5 minutes.

It was great! My only tip would be to really pay attention during the demonstration, because when it is your turn things go really fast. One of the best experiences that have ever had. My husband and I are going to take another class. James Michael is such a interesting fellow. I really liked him. Angelique

I thought I'd get to do my own piece with the supervision of teacher and helpers. Instead, I mostly got to watch the helper do my piece. Also, there has to be a better way to map out where pieces are placed in the cooling oven to avoid mistakes.

From Our Editors

For James Michael Kahle, the molten material he uses to craft his sculptures and vessels is a living thing, an element that must be cooperated with in order to achieve the desired response. Since beginning his career at the Toledo Museum of Art in 1990, the artisan has come to master a number of methods for creating stunning visual effects, from melding metal and alloys into the glass to encasing air bubbles. James channels his skill into crafting pieces—such as installation pieces, prismatic sinks, and even memorial sculptures forged around the ashes of a departed loved one—for display and use around the home. The glassworker also invites groups into his studio for classes, vigilant as his students work their own pieces in lava-powered ovens reaching more than 2,200 degrees Fahrenheit.
