Episode 85 - Jack Baker’s Glass House

March 29, 2017

Akron Glass Works’ new location near the University of Akron is ideal for this glass blowing studio and gift shop, where everything is made by local artists, including the work of owner Jack Baker. On this episode (which also has an accompanying video - check out the Akronist's YouTube channel), Jack takes us through the inspiration behind Akron Glass Works, the building’s former life as a church and the company’s connection with artists, ending with a demonstration in the “hot shop,” where he creates a beautiful glass marble.
