HotBlownGlass, Ltd visits BMS
Artists from HotBlownGlass, Ltd and Glass Arts Indiana, Inc. brought their MOBILE Hot Shop to BMS for 2 days. All arts rotation classes were given the opportunity to see how glass blown art is made. They artists explained the science behind glass blowing explaining the chemistry of the glass itself, melting points, and the chemistry of the colored glass. They showed how glass reacts to various elements in the molten state and how they manipulate it. They spoke about what education they have, what kinds of art they make and how they make money in this field of art. This was an awesome experience that students will cherish.
