Birthdays are an exciting time each year — dinner with friends and family, maybe a trip somewhere or something you’ve always wanted.
Today’s post is about two birthdays that decided to celebrate by blowing their own glass!
First up are Sarah and Cheyene Jordan. They decided to join us for our Saturday class. This month, we are offering pulled flowers and strawberries. Both Sarah and Cheyene made flowers to celebrate Cheyene’s 25th birthday. With help from Clay, they gathered color, reheated the glass and sculpted it to its final shape!
They had lots of great questions about the process so it wasn’t a surprise when they said they were planning to return for a private lesson!
Next up are Cheryl and Tyler Court. As soon as they came in, you could tell they were in the right place! Cheryl mentioned that it was her son Tyler’s 19th birthday and that he wanted to become a glassblower.
Tyler’s natural ability was evident as he and his mother made multiple items during their two-hour private lesson. They made a few small items like bubble bowls and a few impressively large items like a planter and a floppy bowl! We can’t wait for them to see their final products!
Since Tyler had a natural talent and interest in glass, we recommended he sign up for our Hot 1 course beginning September 10th. Hot 1 is our in-depth course on everything glass from furnace to annealer!
