October 2014

After being in Toronto for the Treating YourSelf expo where there was a Flame Off with some of the best glassblowers in the world
divided in 3 groups and after seeing the glassblowing scene growing so fast in US.

We decided to do something to involve European glassblowers and start to evolve the scene with the First European Functional Flame Off and class with Sascha from Badabing Glaswerks.

The attendants to the First European Flame Off were:

DokGlass – 1st place winner

MellowGlass– 2nd place winner

Badabing Glaswerk – 3rd place winner

OriginalGlass– unclassified cos the piece broke.

What’s a Flame Off?

A Flame Off is a competition between glassblowers or groups of glassblowers that have a certain amount of time to make a piece to enter the competition.

 The groups or glassblower will have the same tools, same amount of glass and same amount of time to complete the entry.
