The color furnace is up and running! This new addition to the studio will hold two different colors, starting in September. Shown above are custom colors formulated and created from scratch by Hot Shop staff, including "Monsoon Blue" (left) and "Barrio Purple" (right).
"It is thrilling to have access to molten color in the studio! The colors turned out great and the possibilities fire the imagination. The color furnace holds two crucibles, each holding 40 pounds of the colored glass. Our plan is to switch the colors up every six to eight weeks." - Paul Anders-Stout, Hot Shop Director
This September, the color furnace will be available to rent for experienced glassblowers. Stay tuned for details.
