New CIA building taking shape; set for December completion
At the Cleveland Institute of Art, we have one of the best-equipped undergraduate glass studios in the country and each Glass student has his or her own individual studio space. Developing a sense of community and collaboration is an important aspect of the program. So our student-run facility promotes teamwork and teaches the responsibilities of everyday glass studio operation. The well-ventilated, three-station hot glass area features furnaces for melting clear and colored glasses, benches and tools for working glass hot, and large annealing ovens. An adjacent area holds more computer-controlled ovens for casting, slumping and special forming projects. The cold glass facility is furnished with great lighting, diamond saws, lapping wheels, German and Czech engraving/cutting lathes, polishing lathes, and assorted hand tools for grinding and polishing. Lampworking also has a designated space to complement the other complex glass-working processes.
