Seasoned potter and glass blower Zion Warne has been exploring the freedom of three-dimensional medias for more than 15 years. At his eponymous art studio, he continues to turn vibrantly colored molten glass into delicate ornaments, intricate sculptures, and dangerous toothbrushes. In his downtime, Zion teaches this intricate art to others during private lessons and workshops. He and his experienced staff help students of all abilities safely carve out shapely paperweights, vases, and bowls while unleashing their creative sides.
Delia is just as comfortable welding a torch as she is a paintbrush. As an artist, her affinity for metal and enamel media merges to result in a range of whimsical sculptures and fabrications. One of the most impressive is her signature piece Me Deuce, a 14-foot sculpture
depicting a bronze snake-haired woman drawing a bow. It's on display at Barbacoa Grill, where it can only be defeated if shown its reflection in a clean plate.
Delia's works are born at FireFusion Studio, where she also passes on her passion for art in social, hands-on classes that encourage creative experimentation. She acquaints beginners with her methods in Introduction to Enameling, in which she details how to fuse glass and metal to create colorful pieces that are organic or geometric in nature. In more advanced classes, she covers how to make enamel pendants by layering foils and blending paint colors, as well as working with liquid enamel and etching designs on copper. She also opens her studio's doors for open-access labs, providing experienced artisans a place to create.

Prague-born Filip Vogelpohl kindled his passion for glass blowing within his Boise home garage. As his knack for flame-working increased, Vogelpohl left the garage and traveled the world, honing his craft under the tutelage of internationally renowned glass blowers. Now, Vogelpohl welcomes fledgling glass blowers into his studio for small group classes. He also invites spectators to watch the studio's artists as they shape molten glass and borosilicate into jewelry or vases, which then go up for sale in the gallery. On the first Thursday of every month, the furnaces keep firing until 9 p.m. during free glass-blowing demonstrations as a part of the First Thursday Art Walk.
