Josh came to the Elev8 Distribution Studios and it was awesome to hear his path to glass blowing and how he found his love for it. Josh @musicmanglass has been blowing glass since 2016. He took an apprenticeship and from there has learned from anyone and everyone. He talked about how lucky he felt to be in the area. Colorado Springs is a perfect place for glass and for learning glass! Because he is in Colorado, he said he feels blessed to be able to reach out to people who have been blowing glass for decades. A lot of his work has been inspired by animals and so when it came to glass he loved the texture and feel. That is what inspired his Bears, which if you haven't seen go check out his instagram! A lot of what @musicmanglass talked about is how much support and help he received from people who inspire him. It's awesome to hear the love and affection for the art of glass and how when someone new comes along they support and lean on each other to grow. He may be new to the game for some, but still someone who has a lot of skills and drive so i'm excited to see what new ideas he has and new ways to push the envelope. Interestingly, he has become a sort of torch collector and has basically used or tried every torch you can name. Clearly he loves what he does and his attention to detail was awesome to see. The future is bright for josh @musicmanglass and it was great to hear from him.
Thanks for joining!
