Discover the transformative quality of glass through glass bead making and glass fusing.  Create you own works of art in an open and well-appointed studio.  Transformation Glass is a teaching studio for individuals desiring to study and work with glass.

The intense heat of a torch flame and the measured heat of a kiln transforms glass into an ever-changing molten material.

Glass beads are made by winding glass rods that have been heated to molten in a torch flame around a steel mandrel.

Glass fusing uses the measured heat of a kiln to melt together layers of glass sheet.
