Mary Ann Guerra

I have been in Love with Blown Glass for as long as I can remember, although I have been in the glass world for over 30 years, I hadn’t blown glass till I entered my 50’s. I began working with Glass at the Studio of Gavin Heath, A Master in Glass. Now, I have been a Glass Blower for 10 years. I truly love teaching Glass Blowing, it allows me to facilitate the journey that one finds when entering the world of Glass Blowing. I love guiding students to find their own voice and style when learning to work with molten glass. One of the most rewarding experiences is when the student first takes a gather out of the 2000 degree furnace. It is then that the magnitude of the Glass Blowing experience begins. Come take a class with me, and get Blown Away!
