Waterfall Arts Glassworks

Waterfall Arts Glassworks is the only full-time, community-based public-access glassblowing facility of its kind in Maine.

Founded by glass artists David Jacobson and Carmi Katsir for Waterfall Arts, this studio opens the wonderful world of hot glass to the general public. The studio accommodates participants of all skill levels, from first-timers to experienced glassblowers. Waterfall Arts is excited to note that the studio one of the few in the United States that is powered by electricity and waste vegetable oil rather than fossil fuels.

Waterfall Arts is pleased to have received generous donations to help create and support the glass studio and it’s programs. A contribution by the Kao family was made in the memory of William Kao, honoring his life-long fascination with glass arts and crafts, as well as the great joy he found in learning to blow glass.  It is the family’s hope that the students of Waterfall Arts Glassworks will discover a similar joys!
