Blown Rondels

A blown rondel is gathered and blown into a bubble, which is then pierced and opened into the flat shape, then broken off leaving a thicker portion at the center called a punty. Blown rondels can be a solid color or a variety of specialty styles and are available in sizes 3”– 20”. They are more expensive than spun rondels because they take more time and expertise to make.

 

On August 29th our hot glass studio received considerable storm damage. Due to this unfortunate and unforeseen circumstance, production of hot glass items will be temporarily halted while we work to get the department functioning again. Items affected include spun rondels, blown rondels, bullseye panes, blown pendant lights, paperweights, memorial paperweights, jewels, drinkware, and bowls. Sale of these items is limited to in-stock or pre-order only.

Sheet glass, lamination, and Dalle de verre manufacturing will continue as normal during this time. Suncatchers, custom awards and trophies, bead making, custom windows and panels, and restorative glass work will continue as normal. 

Tours will still operate on schedule; however, they will not include the hot glass experience until further notice.

Classes other than hot glass will continue as scheduled. Hot glass classes will be suspended until further notice.
