Glassblowing Exhibit

Grant has never been attracted to making functional glass items, instead he has always been drawn to its sculptural qualities. Unlike other materials, glass cannot be sculpted with your hands - artists must use special tools, timing, and gravity to manipulate the two-thousand degree material, which is constantly moving while hot.

Admission includes 2 drink tickets

Free with a Basic Membership of $50
