Hot Glass

gift shop window

Yesterday I visited an art center called the Goggleworks in Reading, PA.
The center provides artists with studio spaces, including hot/fused glass and Ceramics.

For many years I was a clay sculptor working almost exclusively in the Raku method.
Glass was always something I wanted to try.
So when I walked into the studio and smelled the firing kilns...
glowing at 2000F...I knew the time had come!

I will be taking a hot glass workshop at the end of October!
We will be making a pint sized glass or a tumbler.
I'm so excited!


  1. Ooh, that sounds like fun! Hope you have a great time. Raku pottery is beautiful. I'm looking forward to a friend teaching me pottery and knitting this fall. My boys have made pottery pieces several times. Now it's my turn!

  2. Both knitting and clay are wonderful, I know you'll enjoy both.
    Better clear off a couple of shelves for all the yarn you'll start hoarding!
    : )
    xo, j

    warm to touch.
    the workshop seems exciting and it
    will be nice to see what you make.
    have a restful weekend, j.
