I found Public Glass because of my pet betta, Blue Meanie. I wanted him to have an awesome tank with custom-made decorations. I got the idea that a glass sculpture would be perfect for him.
That idea didn’t work out. But, I’m still researching the possibility for my new betta fish, Cinnamon Dream.
Public Glass is on the outskirts of the city in the more industrial Bayview District. It’s a non-profit run by a group of really cool people. They have unlimited patience in the glass classes. Their youth program, Light a Spark, helps kids learn teamwork, trust and confidence.
Once a month, Public Glass holds Hot Glass Cold Beer. For a donation you can pick out a unique hand blown glass, fill it with beer and enjoy while watching outstanding artists create glasswork and listen to live music. In August, Bishop Randall, visiting from his studio in Grass Valley, California, will delight the crowd with his flameworking. At the end of the night, you can take your glass home. What a great souvenir!
