Barkend Studios

Welcome to our Studio

Our "hobby room" (also known as the glass studio) was completed in the spring of 2007. The photos below show the progression from side yard to great new work space. We do the "warm" work including glass fusing and lampwork in the new glass studio. We do our glass cutting for the fusing projects in another room in our house, formerly a bedroom before the kids grew up & left home. The metal sculpture (cutting, welding, and sandblasting) takes place outdoors or in the garage.

In July 2007 we added photovoltaic panels to the garage roof, so we now operate our kiln on renewable solar power!

Construction begins January 2007
Coming along nicely, February 2007
Finished and ready for work!
