What you'll do

I'll meet you, or your group, on location at the Arizona Fine Art Expo, at MacDonald Ranch. I'll be in the courtyard, at the glass studio. Here we will talk about expectations and safety. We will get an equipment tour & introduction to glass color, followed by a demonstration. In the demonstration you will see me making a piece of glass. You will pick your colors and what you'd like to make. Then one by one, from start to finish, I will guide you through the process of making your own glass paperweight or mini glass pumpkin. Your new glass pieces will cool off over night and be ready to pick up the following day or we will arrange shipping!

Gregory

I've been blowing glass since 1997. I've worked in production factories, glass institutions and private studios making & teaching glass blowing to all ages. My glass work can be found in galleries, museums, and private collections nationwide. Since 2013 I’ve worked for the Bay Area Glass Institute. We provide glass making experiences for all ages. For the last few years I’ve been traveling the country making and selling my glass. I've been awarded best in Glass and honored as a featured artist at several shows coast to coast. I began my own mobile glass studio to offer glassblowing, fusing and corporate team building classes, sharing what I love as I travel. Now I set up my glass studio in Arizona for the winter and upstate NY in the summer. There's no way I'm blowing glass in Phoenix in July!

Where you'll be

You'll be joining me at my winter glass studio, here in sunny Arizona! I'm set up at the Arizona Fine Art Expo, an art show with over 120 artists of different mediums making and selling their work. My studio is outside, in the courtyard. Before or after the class see, feel and maybe shop new artwork directly from the artists.
