AMOKURA GLASS

When Heather Kre­men was still at school, her fa­ther signed her up for a glass­blow­ing class. She fell in love with “the ma­te­rial, the process, the heat, en­ergy and the magic of it” and now she runs Amokura Glass – a hot-glass stu­dio and glass art gallery. View her pieces and watch a daily demon­stra­tion.
