I've always been fascinated with glass blowing, so I was thrilled to have this opportunity. Really, really enjoyed it! It gets hot in the studio even in winter, so wear layers you can take off, some in my class were obviously uncomfortably warm. Great teachers, they left me even more fascinated with the art than before! Definitely want to return for more of their classes. While this would make a great date night or friends activity, I went on my own and thoroughly enjoyed it. I was fortunate to have happy, friendly classmates. Looking forward to picking up my creations in a week!

About Janke Studios

Matt Janke dreamed of landing the perfect glass-blowing job. After moving to Atlanta in 1986, he realized there wasn't a single glass studio in town, granting his art a ready-made niche. After settling in, he returned to grad school, earning an MFA in glass with the intent to launch his own university program and ultimately procure his own space. By the time he graduated in 1992, Matt further honed his skills, stockpiled equipment, and, in 1996, opened his own studio and hired himself.

Beyond the perks of being his own boss, having his own studio affords Matt a great deal of creative freedom. He infuses all his handblown light fixtures, tumblers, and vases with the prismatic swirls of his signature style, in which precise lines and natural variations vie for attention across undulating surfaces. A downtown gallery space facilitates sales of these works.

But the studio has also fulfilled more than Matt's original goal of finding glass-blowing employment, going on to catalyze a glass-blowing community. From single apprentices in the early days, the studio is now a full-fledged classroom, with space for five instructors, a dozen students, and the kilns that must melt their glass until they each finish their training by capturing and taming a fire-breathing dragon.
