If you’ve fallen in love with making glass beads or fused glass or if you’ve always wanted to try glass, then eventually you’ll need to create a place to work. Between shards of glass, torches, and kilns, glass doesn’t work as well on the kitchen table as beads or wire do. You need to organize a safe area to work in where no one will step barefoot on a piece of glass, drops of melting glass won’t drip on the head of our cat, or fumes from a torch won’t make your family ill.

When I become more involved with glass work, I ended up converting a corner of my garage into a glass studio. I have an exhaust system in the garage, but on good days, I can just open the door and let Mother Nature help with any ventilation issues. Here is a tour. It might give you ideas about setting up your own glass jewelry work-area.
