Glassblowing at Third Degree Glass Factory

Local glass artist Mike Hayes of Third Degree Glass Factory is a bona fide glass blowing wizard. This virtuoso, equipped with his blowtorch and purple safety goggles, cranks out works of art without even breaking a sweat. With only the company of his sleepy dog, Kink, Hayes produces all types of lovely glass items – including bowls and vases – which can be purchased in the Glass Factory’s gallery.
