First practiced by ancient gods of the underworld who forged vases in the fiery depths of volcanoes, glass-blowing is now the second most popular air-filled art form after inflatable architecture. Acquire a piece of molten magnificence with today's Groupon from Luke Adams Glass in Norwood. Choose between two options:
- For $95, you get a three-hour introduction to glass-blowing class for two (a $190 value).

Luke Adams Glass is a haven for artists who prefer a translucent, molten medium. Those eager to craft semi-opaque sculptures may reserve a space in one of Luke Adams Glass' semi-private glass-blowing classes, which only admits three students per session. Pair up with a creative partner-in-crime for a three-hour stint that guides students through the process of making simple, household items such as paperweights and extraordinarily complicated leg shackles. Learn to manipulate color applications and take home a piece of handmade art afterward, ideal for heartfelt gifting or mantle adornment. Classes are available weekday evenings and on some weekdays; call ahead to reserve a spot.
Luke Adams Glass also creates one-of-a-kind pieces using the fiery power of glass-blowing. Errant sunbeams with outstanding parking tickets can finally be apprehended with vibrant sun catchers such as the translucent hanging starfish ($35) or the multicolored rondel ($35). Pendant necklaces ($56) make distinctive gifts and artist-signed heart paperweights ($39–$43) capture flighty documents looking to make an airborne escape.
Luke Adams Glassblowing Studio
Luke Adams's childhood talent for drawing spurred him toward an education in glasswork at the Massachusetts College of Art, where he honed his technique under artists from all over the country. Today, Luke molds his molten medium into colorful, one-of-a-kind starfish suncatchers, jewelry, and paperweights. Through jewelry-making and glassblowing classes, his studio spreads a passion for glass-oriented artistry, teaching students to shear and assemble artful shards, molding them into versatile, translucent building blocks similar to the kind used to by Gustave Eiffel to construct an ice-cube model of his infamous tower.
