Haute fusion glass studio
We were excited to vist Haute Fusion Glass Studio because this once again (like many things in Middletown) would be a totally new experience for us and a fun one at that. Keeping with full disclosure, I was equally as nervous because Vegas and Sydney oftentimes move full speed like an atom when it's split. Needless to say, I had zero interest in bringing the phrase "Bull in a china shop" to reality.
Haute Fusion is owned by John Ferrando, a "Master Glass-smith" (is that a term? or should I copyright it?), with over 8 years experience in Kiln Formed and Fused Glass among other styles, is a teacher, author of the popular ebook "Decorative Motif With Fused Glass" (HERE) and is also a father of 5, which was great because he totally understood the art of catering to multiple minds at one time.
John reminds me of the guy you work with thats been there for 30 years and despite being given ample opprotuity to move up, declined them all because he genuinely loves his job. Debbie also works in the studio and is as patient as she is talented and did an excellent job with keeping the kids on task, which in the case of Vegas and Sydney, as I alluded to earlier, is no easy task.
Haute Fusion is an art one stop where you can view custom pieces on display in addition to making your own. It was interesting not only looking at art but also speaking to and learning from the artist himself.
