Glassblowing is very popular in Seattle and Washington State, and over the past few years we have seen more and more individuals become interested in this form of art. Every artist has their own unique style, and you can really create whatever you imagine when you are working with glass. You can make pipes, bongs, dabbers, pendants, christmas ornaments, stir sticks, glass marbles, bubblers, and this list just goes on and on.
Below are some local artists that create all of their work at The Boro School, located in 7 Point Studios in the SODO district of Seattle. They post all of their new work on Instagram, and you can follow them in order to purchase and see their new creations.
If you are interested in blowing glass yourself, check out The Boro School‘s website, and you can rent torch time and register for classes and lessons taught by world famous glassblowers.
On the Torch Since: 2013
“My work is inspired by my surroundings here in the pacific northwest, I try to incorporate a natural theme to my glass adding leaves and sculpting branches that entangle the original shape.”
On the Torch Since: November, 2014
“I turned the sadness of a broken piece into the determination to be making my own innovative pieces and planning out my own home studio. I am always learning and striving to be better.”
“Currently I really enjoy making pendants and dabbers, and strive to work with many different colors when I get on the torch.”
If you want to see a live glassblowing demonstration book a tour with us today, and one of the local artists we work with will blow a pipe right in front of you. You will also have the opportunity to purchase the pipe for somewhere between $15-30 at the end of the tour. Cheers!
