During Ornament Extravaganza, artist Bryan Goldenberg or one of his on-staff glass artists leads students through the creation of their own glass-blown holiday ornament.

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.
