Our small group was introduced to Trine Sundt, the in house artist. Within the hour, she made 2 wine glasses and a small bowl to model the process of glass blowing.
Everything revolves around the oven - it runs 24 hours a day, 7 days of week and she typically uses 1 tonne of gas per month! Once that small white door was removed, the room quickly heated up and the fires were raging inside.
It's a continual process of rolling, shaping, cooling, adding and forming using a variety of tools all of which was fascinating to watch.
She makes a variety of pieces all of which are for sale in her shop. (Interesting fact: The Norwegian government only considers it as 'art' if it doesn't have a specific use. Basically, everything Trine makes is 'useful' and thus pays 25% tax on everything that is sold.)
