Make glass art? Santa Barbara Art Glass Class

I give a high recommendation for the glass class at Santa Barbara Art Glass.  Here is their pitch: Let Saul and Gina Alcatraz put their years of glassblowing expertise to good use, mentoring you through the process of wielding rods tipped with molten glass, adding color to your piece, and shaping your creation into a vase, tumbler, paperweight, or another wonderful keepsake. A big thanks to my mom for getting the Groupon that got us there.

Like all creative processes, there are many different materials and tools involved in glass blowing. Below are a few pictures from the glass studio in Santa Barbara.

I have a few ideas about creating hydroponic glass sculptures. My imagination has gone crazy with a combo fountain/chandelier/bouquet idea. Here are some early sketch ideas
