Glassblowing students use gas and electric furnaces to shape molten glass into medium and large size sculptures such as bowls and drinking glasses. Lampworking classes use a different type of glass and cold tubs and rods to create smaller, more detailed items such as beads, pendants, and animal figurines. Both processes require cooling overnight, so finished items must be picked up at a later date.
Ohio City Glass
With the aid of a furnace, blowpipe and punty, molten glass is ready to be bent into a huge variety of shapes or blown up like a super hot balloon. At Ohio City Glass, classes teach amateurs how to perform these artistic feats. Teacher Daniel Miller helps beginners every step of the way, showing them how to use glassblowing tools and how to manipulate the glass to bring their ideas to fruition. By building a foundation, students can create glass sculptures from spherical ornaments to bowls, vases, and drinking glasses. Students can also tackle metal fabrication during classes where they create their own piece of art from steel.
