Hi, my name is Ed Donovan I'm here at DC GlassWorks. You can find us at dcglassworks.com. We are a public access glass blowing facility, we also do metal and metal-casting and welding. We are primarily a teaching facility. We want to share with people the magic of glass blowing. It is an amazing substance and today I'm gonna be talking to you about glass-blowing. Glass blowing is kind of one of those things you can find, uh, assistantships. A lot of glass blowers, gaffers we call ourselves, will hire people in order to give them assistance in their making glass because it's really more of a team oriented kind of endeavor. I think it's much more fun when you're working with a team. Uh, so to get a job with a gaffer, uh, who needs assistants is one way to go. Uh, you can also work on a cruise ship if you have a lot of experience. There are three ships, I believe, that have hot shops on them. Um, that would be kinda fun. I always thought that would be a pretty cool thing too. Um, there's also teaching in a glass blowing facility such as this one that you could, uh, learn, uh, or teach students how to blow glass. That would be a really great job. Primarily, I think most glass artists create their own jobs just by getting good enough to create pieces that are - people are willing to buy and then finding either a gallery or consignment shop, uh, or even doing weekend fairs; craft fairs and so forth and traveling with your art that you've created and selling it for yourself so that you, um, you basically create your own job.
