Join us for a TEN YEAR Celebration on Saturday February 7, 2015 from 4PM to 7PM
Welcome to the Jennifer Sears Glass Art Studio. Learn to Blow Glass from local artisans as they take you through the process working with molten glass. Make a float, a fluted bowl, a paperweight, a starfish or a heart, and work with Andrew, Otto, Jon, Sam or Kelly. Dan will set-up your appointment. Please make your reservation as soon as you are able.
MAJOR Construction north of us on Highway 101, should be anticipated and may add some time from the north.
(Portland and the valley, Pacific City and the Coast)
Otto and his after-school Glass-Blower make a paperweight.
You can make a Float, Fluted Bowl, Paperweight, Starfish, Heart or Jumbo Float. We supply everything you will need except your creative talent! This is your chance to get up close and personal with the process of creating Glass Art. You will feel the warmth of the glory hole as you create a lasting memory in colored glass. Friendly instructors guide each student through a creative process that has been handed down through the generations for centuries.
About RESERVATIONS. Our appointments are time-sensitive. It's advisable to show up at least 15 minutes prior to your start time. If you're running more than 10 minutes behind schedule, you may need to reschedule. Traffic is thick in the summer or with the current construction. If you're coming from the valley or Portland, you should add about 45 extra minutes to your travel time. If you're driving from Pacific City, you'll want to allow about 25 minutes extra to your travel time.
For your own safety, we ask that you not wear open-toed shoes or fleece while you are blowing glass.
If you are interested in the glass art made by the artists you are working with, please visit our gallery in our facility or the Volta Gallery across the street from the Glass Studio. Both galleries feature the work of the Glass Center artists.
James Benson, Otto Hagaman, Kelly Howard, Andrew Kogel, Dan Millen, Jon Myers, Rahman Anderson, Kyla Sherman
and Bill Neudek (alias Mr. Bill).
The Glass you make requires an overnight stay for cooling, and will be available the following morning or we can ship your creation for a fee.
