Hot Glass Alley is Charlotte’s first hot glass art studio. It’s at 438 Atando Avenue, which is north of Uptown, between Graham Street and N. Tryon Street. It’s around the corner from NoDa Brewing.
It’s owned by artist Jake Pfeifer, a young artist who has been blowing glass since he was 14 years old. He recently moved to Charlotte from New Jersey to open this studio.
Hot Glass Alley offers a variety of glass vessels, small sculptures, functional pieces, seasonal gifts, and art glass objects in several unique series and forms, as well as one-of-a-kind & corporate gifts.
Hot Glass Alley will also offer opportunities, through lessons and workshops, for community members to try glassblowing.
On Friday, April 19th, 2019, from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m., Hot Glass Alley is opening the studio for an Open Demo.
Watch flame working on the torches, as well as artist blowing in the Hot shop.
FREE to watch and open to all ages.
