This sounds just like a regular ol' glass blowing job.

This sounds just like a regular ol' glass blowing job.

And a poorly-paying one at that!

We focus on "emerging" glass artists looking for experience and a place to make work. It's not a high production environment- It's a 30 hour work week, studio use with supplies and a nice apartment included.

Any port in a storm? Just list it like that. All the kids are really better off being straight about it. Jordan and David are right.
