One of the most state-of-the-art glassblowing laboratories in the country, we are also one of only twelve universities in the U.S. with a glassblowing laboratory, and of those twelve, one of only six that offers a laboratory glassblowing class. The lab is run by Erin Mayberry, who has over ten years' experience and is a long-time member of the American Scientific Glassblowers Society, including being the Director and Chair of the Southwest Section.
The Glassblowing Laboratory offers a variety of services, ranging from custom apparatus fabrication to basic or complex repairs. We also have a large inventory of already-made glass items. We are able to work with Borosilicate (pyrex), Quartz, and Plate, and other types of glass needed can be ordered in as well.
No instruments available for student use (with the exception of Glassblowing Laboratory students)
