Best Place to Blow St. Louis 2005 - Third Degree Glass Factory
There are two kinds of oral artists in this world: the Jenna Jamesons and the Dale Chihulys. Both have mastered their mouths to work with delicate media and learned to expand their hardening pieces under seriously hot conditions. In fact, the only real difference between the two métiers can be found in glass blowing's Rule Numero Uno: If you suck in, you die. To learn more golden rules and channel your inner Chihuly, drop by the Third Degree Glass Factory, which offers everything from studio rental time to glass-mastery courses to individual sessions for the curious novice. On the third Friday of each month, Third Degree features an open house with demonstrations and live music. Sculpt yourself a fancy-schmancy paperweight or some beads. With every compliment you receive, you can gloat, "Thanks, I blew it myself." Just like Jenna Jameson.
