The functional glass art scene has grown fast in U.S. leaving Europe a little behind, in our smokers culture we have been used more to papers than glass, but now things are changing and the time of the glass appreciation has come to Europe too.
After making a small Flame Off last year at Smokinggear in Denmark with 5 attendants, this year we bring the event to the next level at the Expo Grow in Irun, with 10 competitors at the moment.
With this event we want to help the european glass scene to grow stronger and give the chance to all the glassblowers to be known in the world wide glass community.
We appreciate all the help we are receiving and we ask to all of you to help us showing interest in this event, sharing or sponsoring, what we give back is hard and serious work ;D contact: FLAMEOFF@SMOKINGGEAR.DK
