Whimsical Glass

Bob Brown
B and B Glass Studio/The Glass Haus

B Building Lobby
During Show Hours

Rene Burri and Bob Brown formed B & B Glass Studio to capture whimsical designs in glass. Life is fast...our goal is to put a smile on your face!! Why else would you need a Chicken on a Swing? We have fun in the studio and we hope our designs brighten your day!

Our goal is to include humor and movement in every piece. Using a propane torch, we heat, pull and shape clear, hollow tubes of laboratory glass. During the process, we use oxides, splinter glass and even a sandblaster to add color to the glass. Each piece is truly unique...or...as we like to say..."each piece has its own personality".
