Glass Act: Artist Gavin Heath


Watching the glass blowers at work is one of my favorite things to do at the summertime Sawdust Festival in Laguna Beach.

On the day I visited, South African artist Gavin Heath was demonstrating his work in the studio theater. Surrounded by a crowd of enraptured onlookers, Heath and his assistant took a molten glob of glass from start -to teapot!





Tah-dah!

Heath's art glass is featured at booth 520 inside the Sawdust Festival and is also on display at the Laguna Beach Festival of the Arts. 

If you're feeling inspired, Heath also offers lessons at his studio...bucket list anyone?
 

For more info and photos of Heath's work, check out his blog at HeathArtGlass.blogspot.com.
