NORTHERN VIRGINIA’s – ONE & ONLY – Beer and wine shop… with a glassblowing studio?!
Lampworking is a form of glassblowing in which a torch is used to melt glass in the creation of vessels, sculptures, paperweights, scientific glass, and so much more. In particular, we work with borosilicate glass (more commonly know under the tradename Pyrex).
We believe the appreciation of all crafts is a great way to explore the world. So, we bring to you a unique experience sharing our love of beer, wine, and the glass the holds it all in!
We also create furnace glass works at a different location that are for sale at the shop. Furnace style glass is created on a larger scale with the use of a blow pipe or pontil rod, a crucible which holds the molten glass, and a glory hole which reheats the object glass.
