A Chat with High Desert Flameworks
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
We are Albuquerque's full service, live flame working studio. We offer an outstanding glass experience for beginners and advanced students alike. Our classes cater to both kiddos and adults.
Do you provide any materials? What should your students expect to bring?
Natural Fiber clothing (cotton), closed toed shoes, and an open mind.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
I have been a glassblower/flameworker for 15 years here in Albuquerque. 2 years ago I saw a need and had an opportunity to open a small private studio near Old Town. Its the perfect blend of artisan life and constant inspiration. We are a custom glass studio offering demos and classes.
What do you love most about your job?
I was captivated by molten flowing glass early in life. I've always been fascinated by the medium and I'm happy to be able to pass that joy onto others.
