1. Glassblowing Methods – The two main methods of glassblowing used by artists today are free-blowing and mold-blowing. Free-blowing is self explanatory and describes the type of glassblowing that involves the artist blowing small amounts of air into a molten portion of glass on the end of their blowpipe. This allows the artist to inflate the hot glass in order to mold it into the shape they desire. On the other hand there is mold-blowing that involves the artist blowing the glass into a specified mold typically made out of wood or metal. We feature pieces made from both methods in our online art gallery.

2. Types of Glass Used – Although the types of glass used by artists can vary depending on the project and the artiest, over 90% of glass used today is enriched with lime. It is always interested to see what sort of glass each artist uses when they are choosing materials for their next sculpture. We think you’ll be amazed at what these talented artists are able to do with glass when you visit our online art gallery.

3. Popular Glass Artists – 1962 is when the “studio glass movement” truly began when a a ceramics professor named Harvey Littleton, and a chemist and engineer named Dominick Labino held two workshops at the Toledo Museum of Art. At these workshops the two men experimented with melting glass in a small furnace and creating art with blown glass. Currently an American artist named Karen LaMonte is impressing the art world with her life-size sculptures in ceramic, bronze, and glass.
