What You’ll Do
The art of glassblowing plays with the laws of nature: liquid becomes solid, hot gives way to cool, and—in this case—flowers bloom from fire. Over the course of her two-hour workshop, Carlyn Ray teaches newcomers and glass buffs alike to transform the heat of fire and the clang of steel into something far more delicate: a custom glass flower.
Select the hues for your flower, then work with Carlyn and her team to add pizzaz to the molten glass.
Specialized tools help you easily shape your blossom and pull out your stem.
Bring It Home
On the Thursday following the event, stop by Carlyn’s studio to pick up your cooled masterpiece.
Invite Mom Along
Sculpting a glass flower for your mom is a fun Mother’s Day gift, but sculpting one with her is even more fun.
Carlyn Ray fell under a spell the moment she first set eyes on glass as a child. From there, her passion has led her to some exciting places: the studio of Dale Chihuly, whom she worked with directly; Celebrity cruise ships with the Corning Museum of Glass, where her voice narrates the Hot Glass Show; the pages of “Best of America – Glass Artists” volumes I and II. Carlyn has trained and worked around the world and has brought her ideas and skills to Dallas. She has a team of very talented glass artists and instructors. “Glass is molten magic and we love the opportunity to share it with you!”
