GAF: Glass Art Facilities
Glass Axis supports exemplary artistic practice by providing artists, at all stages of development, with the necessary tools to create innovative works and engage the community. First and foremost, our organization provides affordable access to shared equipment that is otherwise out of the question for many artists working in glass, as glass art production requires expensive tools, consistent skilled maintenance, costly utilities, and ample space. We provide a 17-hours-a-day, seven-days-a-week, comprehensive glass studio that includes: a hotshop; a fully equipped neon shop; a lampworking studio; a stained and mosaic glass lab; a fusing and kiln-casing lab; and a metal working and welding workshop. Also, we offer private studios and open storage options, permitting artists to work on long-term, large, and collaborative projects.
Two molten glass furnaces, four glory holes, a color pot, five annealers, and hand tools.
Grinders, sanders and saws are conveniently available in our cold shop to give glass the finishing touch
Combining gas, glass tubing and electricity is a fascinating process used for neon sculpture and signs
We provide the necessary tools and workspace for cutting and piecing together glass compositions
Our studio has nine workstations equipped with torches, hand tools, and gases.
We offer fusing tools, workstations and three kilns that reach casting temperatures
This shop comes equipped with two welding tables and metal working machines
