Formerly the workspace of Tricia Allen (1962-2010), a respected and creative master of glass art, who loved the fluidity of the medium. Five years on and the furnances were fired up again; hot molten glass swells in its lava-like form at 1100C. Crafting the glass by hand, Norm, in what seems like an effortless display, creates bold contemporary shapes and organic forms from glass bubbles.
