The Alchemy of Glass Blowing

September 19, 2012

Shannon Morgan is hoping to wow Arboretum goers with the beauty and individuality she saw in glass blowing almost 20 years ago. Watch live demonstrations and learn techniques as she and the other artisan narrators take you step by step through the process.

"Making art glass is what I love," says Morgan. Her art reflects her view that “the world is as we dream it.” She adds: "Time falls away like no other place in my daily world.”
