When not teaching at The Studio, both Fleming and Mangiafico are both inspired by nature and create sculptures—sometimes very tiny ones—that are representative of the worlds of insects, spiders, crustaceans, and even their own imaginations.

Take a look into a class at The Studio and watch as internationally renowned faculty demonstrate for their classes ranging from furnace sculpting to flameworking to any other variety of glassblowing techniques.
