Jason Probstein, master scientific glass blower, will be blowing his unique Christmas ornaments at Mountain Made at various times through Dec. 23. Probstein sets up his portable glass-blowing studio right inside the gallery and displays how he makes his fantastic holiday ornaments, wine goblets and champagne flutes. Watching his holiday-season demonstrations and selecting new Christmas tree ornaments have become a cherished tradition for many families in Western North Carolina and beyond.
Probstein earned a degree in scientific glass blowing from Salem Community College in Alloway, N.J., and studied at Penland School of Crafts in Penland, N.C. His spirited, passionate commitment to perfection makes each piece an original work of art.
