Q&A with Warren Norgaard, Artist/owner
What is one of your signature services? How is it performed?
Our most popular workshops revolve around fused glass. Fused glass is different from other more commonly known styles of art glass because it isn’t ONLY done “cold” (like stained glass) and it isn’t ONLY don’t “hot” (like blown glass). Fused glass involved cutting, shaping, and designing the glass in the studio, then placing the work into a glass kiln (similar to a ceramic kiln) where he heat the glass anywhere from 1245F to 1500F to melt it together and give it shape. Some projects only need to be kiln-fired one time. Others could go in the kiln as many as 5 times. Guests perform the “cold” work during workshop, and the trained staff perform the kiln work for them after classes. Finished pieces are usually ready for pickup within one week.
Describe a time your services really changed a client’s life for the better.
Recently, a student came to us after being a student for just over one year. She is a successful business owner and said she thought she was content with her life. Then she took a class as a “fun thing to try” and that it changed her life. A year later, she is creating new work each week, and wakes up excited to see what new thing we will do in class. She stated, “Your classes brought a sense of joy and creativity I didn’t even know I was missing.”
When and how did you first develop a passion for your work?
Having “dabbled” in a variety of art forms over the years, it wasn’t until I found fused glass that I truly knew my artistic voice. I enjoyed working in clay, paint, charcoal, and sculpture, but fused glass gave me a sense of color, texture, image, and feel I couldn’t fully express in other art mediums.
