Experienced glassblower sets up shop in Old Colorado City
Oaks Glass Gallery and Studio sells his creations; he also gives lessons.
The business at 2616 W. Colorado Ave., Suite 16, is open Tuesday to Sunday.
Oaks said he got interested in glassblowing as a boy, fascinated by the care that's required to make a good piece and avoid mistakes.
While in the military in New Mexico, he found a college that offered classes. He pursued the discipline after leaving the service, working seven years part-time and two years full-time.
He decided Old Colorado City would be a good location because glassblowing “fits the unique culture” of the historic shopping district, he said.
