Glass Art Society - Tucson


The parking lot at Philabaums became a multi-site hot glass showcase with a new studio built against the wall, a visiting trailer and several tent and workbench sites for lampworking and beadmaking.

Southern Illinois University brought Gladys, the studio on a trailer. It takes about a megawatt of electric power and either a 250 gallon propane tank or industrial natural gas connection to set up.

The outdoor blowing floor for demos. A similar setup was arranged for Gladys. The furnace, gloryhole, etc. are against the building wall to the left and will remain after the Conference.
