Steven Weagel, Blown Glass and Metal Artist

I was fortunate to be in Mankato state...and I was taking ceramics and asked if I would like to sign up for glassblowing. I had no idea what the guy was talking about... I signed up, I went to the first class...blew a piece of glass, and I was blown away. And I decided that from then on, I was going to pursue that one way or another for the rest of my life. - Steven Weagel

Steven Weagel has been fascinated with glass art since he first experienced it.  His current glass and metal exhibit at the Crossing Arts Alliance in Brainerd is called “Light, Color and The Northern Landscape." He joined our morning show to discuss the art of glass, its history in America and what he loves so much about it.  Find Steven at The Weagelworks on Facebook
