Glass Blowing Demonstration

One of the events we added to this year’s festival line-up was a glass blowing demonstration by local artist Wes Hunting. 

Wes, and his son Wes Jr. create stunning, one-of-a-kind pieces that are incredibly beautiful.

To learn more about them, please have a look at their website and this documentary video: http://weshuntingglass.com/documentary/ OR if you’re in the area, visit their gallery in downtown Princeton.

Here are a couple photos of the piece they made while we were there Sunday morning. Scroll down to see the finished product, which had to cool overnight before revealing its true beauty.

It was fascinating to watch the entire process from start-to-finish.

Almost finished! Wes Jr. is in position to catch the vessel when his Dad cuts it loose from the metal rod.

Ta Da! Isn’t it stunning?
