    • The TCB Office at 13467 Wetmore Rd.


    Nicole Lozano presents an educational hands-on class, teaching methods of cold working glass using different techniques.  

     Statement from Nicole- "I believe strongly the feelings picked up by your fingers as they run across a piece are just as important as the message received visually. And that art/craft are meant to be enjoyed. I work to convey these values by creating items made to be lived with and used. I regularly include raised elements and pay close attention to the finish each piece is given. This increases visual depth and contributes to that ever important sense of touch."

    Donate Glass Bowls
