Hot Glass Cold Beer (HGCB) is Public Glass’ long-running series that combines exciting glass demonstrations, live music and food & drink for a night of great entertainment. For a $25 donation, you'll select a one-of-a-kind drinking glass handblown by a Public Glass artist that we'll fill with your choice of beer, wine or soft drinks all evening; at the end of the night, the glass is yours to keep. 100% of proceeds benefit Public Glass. (Glasses available while supplies last.)
Our featured artist for this HGCB event is TJ Ossola.
T.J. began working in glass in Colorado, before studying at the Canberra School of Art at Australia National University where he received an Honors Degree in glass. He has been working in glass in the Bay Area for the past 9 years, primarily as a glass blower. His work reflects on nature, water, and elements of the human figure which combine to create color, forms and patterns in his work.
