Well, some may like it hot but this is really something! Fortunately when we designed this studio, we took cross ventilation into concern, and are happy to say we can still create work when the temperatures rise….
Glass is molten at 2000 degrees, the same temperature of Lava! So we are used to extreme temperatures, and need the glass to stay hot to be malleable. Once it cools below 900 degrees, it starts to become more solid than liquid, and is hard to work.
Mike has been going in early and cranking out lots of new work to take to this July’s Southern Highland Craft Guild…drop bye the studio during our regular hours(10-5, tues-sat) to get a sneak peak of his latest creations…and stay cool this Summer!
