Furnace Initiation Open House

After a cold two months of being without a glass furnace, we are happy to announce our 3rd-ever

Furnace Initiation Party!

It happens but infrequently that a glass studio like ours gets a new glass furnace and anytime that it does happen it is cause for a celebration!

Come and join us on Saturday March 14th  for an Open House to initiate our new furnace!

For the past two months our hot shop has been shut down while Lorraine expertly crafted another of her exquisite furnaces, This design is unique to our studio and a bit complicted to make, But its now done, heated up and ready for glass back (you can see from the photo above that Hazel, for one, appreciates its presence)

You can also check out what remains of the old furnace;

this handsome looking modernist sculpture is actually the leaky old pot that had been the core of the last one!


Stop in on Saturday March 14, from 12:00-5:00

 We will have glassblowing demonstrations, snacks and you can ask all the questions you have been dying to have answered about glass furnace construction!

The party is at  the Snake Oil Glassworks, Inc. studio at 4251 Jordan Road in Skaneateles, NY

If our studio parking lot is too full when you arrive, You may park across the street at the church.

The National Center for Transgender Equality is the nation’s leading social justice advocacy organization winning life-saving change for transgender people.

The NCTE is a national social justice organization devoted to ending discrimination

and violence against transgender people through education and advocacy on national issues of importance to transgender people. For over a decade, NCTE has been at the forefront of changing laws, policies and society to improve the lives of transgender Americans. From their early beginnings educating staff about who they were, to the milestone inclusion of transgender people in the president's State of the Union speech a decade later, and to the dozens of policy wins that lined the pathway in between--NCTE has been a strategic force in their movement toward equality.

By empowering transgender people and our allies to educate and influence policymakers and others, NCTE facilitates a strong and clear voice for transgender equality in our nation's capital and around the country.
