More Than A Meditation Globe

The Meditation Globe, is an original product and class, designed by the founding creators of the Glass Academy. Whether you choose to display your globe on a sunny window sill or utilize it as a stunning paperweight, your one-of-a-kind handcrafted glass keepsake will bring you joy for years to come.

In this class, you'll learn the glassblowing basics and create your very own Meditation Globe. Using the marver, you'll incorporate several colored pieces of glass into a “gather” of molten glass. You will then twist, pull, and stretch the glass, using tweezers to manipulate the color, creating the captivating design at the center of your globe. A second dip into the furnace (aka "a gather"), will encase the inner layer of color with molten glass, adding depth and allure. Finally, using a specialized tool known as the block, you'll meticulously shape and smooth the glass to achieve the perfect rounded orb. Many find the experience to be truly meditative, providing a serene and tranquil atmosphere from start to finish
