Jerome Glass

Linda wanted to show me this glass blower's work when we were in Jerome, AZ earlier in the month. The glass blower, Tracy Wiesel must either be a late riser, or has a ton of things he gets done in the morning before opening at noon. The hours of operation posted did indicate that he opened at noon. The locals will tell you that it can be anywhere from twelve-ish to one-ish! Ah, no matter as he did have some of his wares out for display behind the fence. I kinda had to jam my camera lens through the fence to wrassle this shot! I'm sorry I didn't get to meet Tracy as I think he has got to be one interesting person. Perhaps the next time...

Really fun stuff! I guess I'm a wee bit relieved that he wasn't there as I don't think I could've left without buying something of his! Red glass, blue glass, pear shaped glass; everything in so many different colors! There is something so magical about hand blown glass. Danger and beauty all rolled up into the process.

His studio is located behind this 'leftover' building.

Every week, a group of us from around the world post our shadow shots over at Hey Harriet. Entertain your muse by stopping by to see what others have posted!

Wow - what fun glass he has! Love his "building" too - once we were in Mempis and there was a building front that held an outdoor club - we thought that was pretty impressive when we saw that!
Happy SSS!

At least you got some great shadow shots even if you weren't able to get a close-up view.
