a labor of love.
When Elizabeth lyons first started More Fire glass studio in 1998, she envisioned a public access space where the community could come together to learn about and create glass. It was the first glass program of its kind in Rochester, Ny, and For years More fire offered instructional programs in glassblowing, casting, beadmaking and fusing, as well as studio space and rental for established glass artists to create work. More Fire Glass Studio also provided opportunities for high school students, from all areas of the city, to connect with professional artists to see the possibilities, and to experience glass making as a vehicle for creative development.
in 2010, as glass education programs sprung up in the area, and as the demand for Elizabeths' work grew, the studio shifted its mission to focus on production. Providing the space and time for elizabeth and her team of experienced glassmakers to create a range of products and art work full time.
with Sculpture, lighting and decorative objects selling internationally in shops specializing in products for interiors, galleries and large high end department stores, elizabeth and her team continue to push the boundaries as artists and designers, making one of a kind pieces, hand crafted in Rochester NY.
The studio and gallery are open Monday-Friday 9AM-4PM most days.
