In the centre of the workshop you will find the melting kiln. The glassblower will use a blowpipe to extract a specific amount of red-hot plain glass from this kiln. By adding colour, blowing, shaping and intermittent heating the glassblower will create an unique art object: the unica.
The Old Ambt glass studio is an open atelier and from 14th of March till the 31st of December you can witness glassblowing from close up.
During the blow process, while the glass is red-hot and balancing at the end of the blowpipe, you will receive information about this process.
