Glass provides a resting place for wine, evening wear for Cinderellas, and a more dramatic exit from 44th-floor windows for Bruce Willises. Shatter artistic inhibitions with today's Groupon: for $119, you get a two-session class in glass-jewelry making at Luke Adams Glass in Norwood (a $285 Value).
Luke Adams Glass is a haven for artists drawn to the visceral, hands-on process of glass blowing. Those eager to craft semiopaque baubles may reserve a space in the two-night hot-fused glass-jewelry-making class, held on most weeknights. The first session finds unmeltable-ice-makers cutting and assembling glass pieces, which are then infused with memories and wishes before being permanently fired into their artful arrangement. On the second night, fused glass is nestled in sterling-silver settings to create pendants, rings, bracelets, and more, or for an extra fee students may opt to frame their fragments in premium settings. Participants take home the jewelry they make to cherish as a prideful memento or to pair with all-glass outfits .
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.
