Jason Probstein: Asheville Glass Blower at Work
Scientific Glass Blower Jason Probstein
Jason Probstein is a lampworker and scientific glass blower who lives here in Asheville, North Carolina. He uses Corning Pyrex glass tubing and rods to create his wonderful artwork. He uses a 3000 degree torch to heat and shape his glass art into strong and very durable pieces like ornaments and goblets.
Jason as a nationally known glass blower has had his glass ornaments and other collectibles displayed in various art galleries and museum gift shops the throughout the Untied States (such as the Smithsonian).
His lightweight, yet durable Christmas ornaments are unique in both their shape, colors and patterns. It is this attention to detail that makes Jason’s work stand out among other glass artists.
Mountain Made is proud to have had Jason display his craft during the holiday season for the past 5 years. We invite you to come by the gallery and watch Jason at work.
