River Basin Vase Created by Steven Claypatch. In 2008, Steve quit his ‘paying’ job because it no longer fit the evolving change in life. Steve found glass blowing satisfying in many ways. Artistic and emotional gratification was discovered in an art he never understood or thought was possible. As he explains: “Prior to 2005, I couldn’t draw a triangle. There is peacefulness when you are working with 2000 degree glass, and the alchemy of the process is simply amazing”. My attention is focused on the liquidity of the material and subsequently the outside world has very little room to invade “my space”.

GLASS BLOWING STUDIO & GALLERY
Creating beautiful art from fire is something that is inspiring to many, yet it is an ancient skill that few practice today. Since 2015, Vandalia Glassworks in St. Paul has provided a complete hot shop, cold shop and gallery to area glass artists and customers in the Twin Cities area.
