Spring is in the air, and we’re celebrating by blowing hot glass!
You too can experience the excitement of furnace glassblowing under the direct supervision of a master glass blower. This is a great way to sample making beautiful furnace glass.
We offer several one-day classes this spring through Ann Arbor Rec&Ed that cover everything from blown forms to garden balls and sculptures.
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.
