Over the years we have heard many requests for more diverse classes.

The challenge is teachers.  People that are willing to commit their time to sharing their knowledge of glass with students.

We are happy to say that we have recently added two very talented artists to our teaching team that are committed to bringing new and exciting classes to North County San Diego.

Doug Anderson, torch artist, joined our team about a year ago.

Doug has many years’ experience in art glass, specializing in sculptural and figurative work.

He studied at Minneapolis College of Art and Design and University of Minnesota Studio Arts Division.

Those of you that have visited our Gallery may have seen his Sea Life and other figures on display or taken one of his sculpture classes.  Doug is offering a new bead and marble duet in December and January.

Also new to the team is Travis Wood.  Travis graduated from California State University, Chico with a BFA degree in studio art. He specializes in the creation of glass art forms in kilns using the processes of lost-wax casting, fusing, and slumping. Wood’s personal work uses glass and metal to comment on various animal rights issues. He is passionate about sharing his love for art glass with the local community.  See some of his work at traviswood.weebly.com  Travis is leading a Holiday Fusing and Slumping Course in December.
