We also offer regular classes that you can read about on our classes page!

Baron Glassworks Fires Up Local Studio Art Scene

Graham Gerdes from Community High School in Ann Arbor stopped in to the glass studio a few weeks ago, and had this to say about it:

Hot, dangerous, delicate and beautiful.  At Baron Glassworks in Ypsilanti, MI, local artists are fusing together their ideas and inspirations to form functional, and aesthetic art.

Annette Baron, sole proprietor and founder of Baron Glassworks, has been blowing glass for 23 years. “I have had the studio for 16 years. It was 1997, and then I lit the furnace Nov. 24 1998. This furnace has been on ever since,” said Baron.

Annette does take younger students on an individually assessed basis: please contact the studio if you’re looking for a wonderfully engaging and creative outlet for your young artist.

Thanks for stopping by, Graham!
