What You’ll Do
Despite its delicate appearance, glass art is forged in a flurry of flame and muscle. Learn the basics of this unique art during a three-hour, hands-on workshop, during which professional glassblower Jim Loewer will teach you to make your own glass ornament.
Learn the Tools of the Trade
You’ll use a torch and kiln, glass tubing, and pigmented glass to craft your spherical pendant, complete with a loop for easy hanging.
Tour the Studio
Jim will also lead a brief tour of the building’s 50-plus art studios.
Take Your Treasure Home
Once your bauble has cooled, you can take it with you to display with pride.
Jim Loewer initially considered paint his primary medium. But as a casual interest in glass art grew more serious, he swapped his brushes for a kiln and devoted himself to glassblowing full time. Today, Jim’s handcrafted glass housewares can be found in such outlets as Anthropologie, Uncommon Goods, and Barney’s New York, where his bowls were praised by the New York Times for their “eye-popping” impact and their “intense swirling colors.”
