Who Is Working in the Hot Shop and Gallery?
In March 2020, the Glass Academy closed its outside doors, but inside, our family of four jumped into action, making new products and giving the studio an overhaul cleaning and redesign. When it became apparent our doors wouldn’t open to customers for a few months, the Glass Academy rebranded and started down a slightly new path by taking our glassblowing show online and grabbing the attention of fans around the world.
The Glass Academy is founded by two artists, Michelle and Chris. They have two children: Jacob, who is the current hot shop manager, and Lucy, who is working remotely monitoring the shows on Facebook and assisting customers with Q&A.
A few other essential key employees join us for behind-the-scenes work and organization to bring our fun and functional products right to your doorstep!
