From Our Editors

A shimmering butterfly hovers suspended in a pink glass teardrop. Glass bands wind around each other like ribbons of pulled taffy to form a glass icicle. Intricate and distinct, the glass artwork at Indianola Glass Creations reflects the diverse specialties of the shops’ glassworkers. Shop partner and lampwork instructor Bobbi Oelmann says it’s this versatility that first drew her to the medium. On any given day, you can find her and her fellow artists slumping glass in the shop’s kiln, blowing glass in the torch room, or meticulously cutting panes of stained glass into adorable geometric shapes. Artists can easily customize these glass pieces to suit customers’ specifications—they create earrings to match a prized pendant, for instance, or fire custom-blown glass ornaments.

Artists not only sell their artwork and jewelry, but empower budding artists to create their own one-of-a-kind creations with weekly classes. Groups of 3–10 students may learn to turn glass rods into beads during a lampworking class, or piece together a stained-glass ornament. To ensure a positive experience, Ms. Oelmann says that instructors strive to get to know each student and his or her goals for the class: “We want them to enjoy it just as much as we do.”
