From the Furnace to Home

Have you ever watched a surgeon perform a procedure and thought, “wow that looks fun”.  Maybe you even thought it looked easy.  That is how I felt when I watched Donna Gordon at her Colorado hot shop create a beautiful vase.  This was not my first visit and I expected to be uninspired seeing her work again since I’ve watched the process before several times.  Wrong.  She is amazing and glass blowing is incredibly difficult, labor intensive and VERY HOT. Aside from the intense heat, I thought maybe this time I would try one or two of the steps she performs but decided not to interfere with her rhythm.  She moves to and fro from the furnace to the glory hole, to the bench, to her torch, to her table for more colored frit and back to the glory hole. Like a dancer not missing a step.  I think I will just leave the glass blowing to the experts like Donna Gordon.

The Donna Gordon Glass Collection is refreshed with new work regularly.  She just finished blowing several dozen hearts for our October fundraiser to support the Wounded Warrior Art Therapy program.  Stop by and pick out your favorite color; they make great gifts and will make you feel great about yourself for helping our combat vets seeking help through Art Therapy.
