i took a one hour hands-on glass blowing instructional today taught by austin glass artist Aaron Gross of Austin Art Glass. he runs the shop over on south congress.
aaron is a calm and highly skillful artist and teacher. i really enjoyed working with this medium and gaining respect for the ancient art technique first hand. being able to fully immerse yourself in the craft within an hour is a very cool thing…
