Voted by Pittsburgh Magazine - “Best Way to Get to the Head of the Glass”

Glass is an amorphous material.
It’s always on the move.

This compact traveling glass studio is complete with all of the state-of-the-art equipment needed to conduct glassblowing demonstrations. It allows artists to pop-up all over town and twist and twirl the molten magma making fiery works of art. 

Hot Wheels brings the art of glass to people who might not ever experience this addictive and dynamic mix of visual and performance art.

Telling the Story: Science, Art AND History of Glass

Glass is hot. It’s an alluring and captivating activity that needs no words to capture your attention. Combine that with Pittsburgh’s rich history in glass and you have a compelling narrative that intertwines science, art and history.
