“We’re trying to improve the industry for the artisans. We’re ready to party.” – John, Pacific Art Glass
This weekend’s open house was intended to help promote these upcoming classes while providing a once in a lifetime opportunity to blow glass alongside skilled professional glassblowers who have already made a name for themselves in the industry.
Explaining what drives him to hold such an event, John, the owner of Pacific Art Glass, had the following to say: “We’re trying to improve the industry for the artisans. We’re ready to party.”
Glassblowing is gaining wider audience appeal with the increasing acceptance of cannabis, and we are seeing an increasing number of glassblowing schools throughout the country. If you are interested in the magic of blowing glass, the open house was a great chance to take a stab at it without too much commitment.
Appearances from D-wreck, Chris Vertigo, Mr. V, Amy Canada Ellenhorn, Lamar, Pakoh, and many more locally acclaimed glassblowers made the Pacific Art Glass open house quite the opportunity to learn from some of the best.
