Glass Blowing Videos

Jason Probstein

Jason Probstein is a lampworker living in Asheville, North Carolina. He works glass tubing and rod with a torch to first heat and then shape his pieces. He uses Corning Pyrex, a strong and very durable glass. Jason received a degree in scientific glassblowing from Salem Community College and has studied Venetian glass techniques at the Penland School of Crafts. He has performed residency glassblowing demonstrations at Walt Disney World, The Biltmore House and Gardens and in Asheville's Mountain Made Gallery.

Fuming his wine glasses with silver and gold makes them change color as the glass goes from full to empty. His lightweight, durable hand blown ornaments are unique in shape and color pattern. While in Israel, Jason went to the National Museum and was inspired by ancient traditional glass. He saw shapes and sizes that stimulated him. When back in the studio, he incorporated these ancient shapes into functional art. These collected pieces are now enjoyed throughout the country.
