We love watching glassblowing. The glassblower answered questions while she was working which was wonderful.

I hadn't visited the glassworks in like 15 years. Some of the best things in life are just not meant to change, and the Tesuque Glassworks is one of those places. The artists come and go but basic premise remains. You lucky artists who are blessed to be able to participate in this fine Co-op. OF COURSE I didn't leave without buying something, okay a couple of things!

Luckily we went to the Tesuque Glassworks a couple days later than we'd originally planned and unknowingly visited during their grand re-opening weekend. They had a new "glory hole" (the furnace used to reheat the piece as it is being worked) and an artist was near the beginning of working on what turned out to be a large platter. It was a team effort with five others assisting the artist with this large piece. We looked around the shop and purchased two glasses which both happened to have been made by the same artist who was just then starting a new piece. (Another platter like the first artist we saw, but this was a couple steps earlier in the process.) We stayed to watch him complete the piece. (Well, finish the blowing/forming process and place the hot platter into the annealer where it would slowly cool for hours or days.) All of us were fascinated by the process and all the artists there were incredibly willing to respond to questions and explain the processes used for different pieces. (Some of the larger cast glass pieces may have been slowly cooled for more than a MONTH to avoid cracking from thermal stress.) I don't think that any of us would have predicted being at the Glassworks for nearly three hours when we first arrived, but there was no way we could have torn ourselves away while there was still a piece being made right in front of our eyes.

We arrived late while a glass blower was cleaning up for the night, but he still took time to share some good info with us and showed us the kiln, which was heating up some fresh glass for the next day. Apparently they do classes, which would be fun if you are in the area. They have some super interesting pieces to view and for sale, including one patterned from a lily pad.
