Choose a Project:

Fused Glass: Glass Quilt (16 people MAX): $35/person + $50 to form the panel.  Personalize with your organization/company logo for an additional $25) - Create a group project to display in your office.  Each person will make a fused glass square and the individual pieces will be fused together as a panel 

Glassblowing: Murrine Vessel (10 people MAX): $40/person - Part of the magic of glassblowing is that it is more of a team sport or interpretive dance than an art form done in solitude. This teamwork/collaboration is the way glass has been made for thousands of years.  Here at Water Street Glassworks, we celebrate the tradition of teamwork and invite you and your team/group to join us! Work with our talented team to design in 2-D a glass pattern out of cane and murrine (*see below), and then watch the piece being created in the hot shop; transforming it from a 2-D pattern to a 3-D blown glass vessel that can be displayed in your office. (Please note: the glassblowing studio is closed from June 1 through September 1)

*What is Cane & Murrine?: Colored glass that has been drawn out into a rod to be used at a later time. Murrine: Cross sectional pieces of cane. An age-old Venetian technique by which bundles of cane are assembled, heated, and stretched so as to create specific imagery within the resulting cross section piece.
