We know how excited you must be, because we missed them too! Ohio’s own Glass Axis will have a Grand Re-Opening on the weekend of November 6 -8 in Franklinton, at 610 W Town St.!

The grand re-opening features workshops and demonstrations by glass master Bill Gudenrath, as well as demos by Glass Axis‘s talented artists and the opening of Glass Axis: A History Exhibition. Pieces by Axis’s artists will be auctioned hot right off the pipe. Daily performance will feature glass jugglers and a glass mime. As a fitting conclusion to a celebration of glass and art, Saturday evening will end with an outdoor glassblowing event that is not to be missed.

Free Last Saturday Demo at Glass Axis


Every last Saturday of the month, Glass Axis in Columbus presents free demonstrations. Watch as an artist makes their personal best in these in-depth demonstrations. This month, Sten Neuber shows the step-by-step process and finesse of creating glass art. Neuber, who has been working with glass for over a decade, uses various pick-up techniques to create peanut and other nut-shaped vessels. 


“My work on my own time is very inspired by nature,” says Neuber, “mostly by animals but also the funny things in life that remind me of animals.”

Don’t miss Sten Neuber, this Saturday, May 31 from 4- 6 in the evening at Glass Axis
