The Glass Underground's well-lit studio is a place that inspires creativity in a calm, but stimulating environment.
The main workroom has extensive storage in it's two areas, 4 cutting stations, a grinder, and a huge work table to accomodate 10 students more than comfortably. The 9' light table allows for great viewing of transparent glass. Storage cabinets and counters line the walls. The secondary workroom contains a large work table and storage space. Glass storage is in a separate area.
Powder class is held in a closed, specially ventilated room built for filtering out particulate matter from the air.
The kiln room contains 12 kilns for all shapes and sized projects. It is also the storage area for our extensive mold collection. There is thirteenth kiln for small pieces and vitrigraph.
The coldworking room houses three diamond flat-laps, 8", 12" and 24", 2 grinders, a trim saw, a ring saw, a band saw, a 30" reciprolap, a Spatzier lathe, a double polisher/buffer, and two sandblasting cabinets. Diamond hand pads are also available for use. The wet room contains a wet belt sander, 2-10" wet saws, a Foredom hand drill, an angle grinder, and seperate bins containing loose grit for hand lapping on the sturdy waterproof worktable.
For holding classes, this space is ideal. For creating art, it is a glass artist's dream!
