let there be glass – ngwenya glass workshop

Written by Heath on March 13th, 2012

A 3 day workshop last year in May – providing insight into some tremendous recycled glass glass-blowing in Swaziland at Ngwenya Glass – a way for me to get a feel for how it is done, with the hopes of working a future project together. I tried using enamel bowls as molds, tried to coil-build with molten glass, and also developed the beginnings of a vase which is now a product… Glass is VERY WEIRD stuff, but at least now I know that, and have some limited experience with it as a material…
