This Lake City glass art studio school multitasks and then some. Owner Richard Heath, who holds a Tiffany historical restoration certificate, operates The Glassique School of Fine Glass Artistry at the facility. The school has classes on stained, leaded, foiled, mosaic and fused glass art, and attracts nearly 2,000 students a year, each eager to learn interesting and effective techniques inside the workshops and showcase studios that make up Glassique. Interested parties can sign up for glass art birthday and bachelorette parties at the studio, which provide a learning and creative tint to the festive affairs. Mainstay artists at the workshop create fine art glass pieces by custom order, using a variety of classic techniques for stained, beveled, fused, carved and slumped glass. The results are predictably stunning, which helps to spread the word about Glassique and owner Richard Heath.
