Joe Blow Glassworks is a 2700 square foot glass blowing facility, located in the east side warehouse district of Vancouver, British Columbia. The studio's state of the art equipment includes 2 glory holes and a 300 lb glass melting furnace built by Marc Gibeau of Anywhere, Ontario, Canada, as well as two annealers which were built in house. Joe Blow Glassworks also houses a metal shop, cold shop and gallery.
Joe Blow Glassworks is the realization of a dream for Jeff Burnette. When he first arrived at the space that would soon be his studio, there was nothing but a whole bunch of debris and really oily floors. (The studios location was formerly a machine shop, hence the oil.) Everything in the studio, aside from the foundation walls, was built from scratch, including all the walls, plumbing, gas and electricity fixtures, and all of the equipment.
Joe Blow Glassworks will be hosting open houses coming soon. To schedule an appointment to come down and see the studio or gallery, please call 604.215.2569.
