Moving a Studio Out of the Basement

My client expresses his creativity with fused glass: multi-colored glass fired in a kiln at a variety of high temperatures to add depth, relief and shape.

Prior to my client’s move to Texas, his craftship was relegated to his basement:  dark, cluttered and less than inspiring.  In his new home, with more bedrooms that he would ever actually use, we created a studio on his second floor.  We ensured it was conducive to his craft:  brightly lit with both natural and artificial light and with glass shard friendly, vinyl distressed-wood plank flooring.  We equipped his studio with a custom-built glass supply cabinet, two workbenches and a pegboard for efficient storage of his tools.  With his kiln at the ready in his garage, his ingenuity is unlimited.

Interestingly, fused glass dates back to early Roman times, and some archeological evidence suggests Egyptians used the techniques as early as 2000 BC.  In a new, customized studio in Roanoke, Texas, fused glass is still going strong.
