St. John Glass Art: Allen – Images by Kathryn Wagner

The Image of the Week this week features photographs of Allen, a glass artist who resided on St. John. Back in 2006 I was invited to come to his studio and photograph him blowing glass. What a fascinating medium! Requiring much patience, skill and a steady hand my favorite part about it was the curious glasses we all had to wear to protect our eyes from the blinding flame of the kiln.

It took about an hour to an hour and a half to create the glass marble shown in the last shot. Though Allen has relocated back to the U.S. one can still catch a glass blowing demonstration at Maho Bay while on St. John.
