Austin, or Midnight Glass, got started in lampwork in 2011 at the age of 18. His cousin showed him the basics of working in the flame, and introduced him to working glass artists in OR. A year later Austin moved to Eugene, a lampwork mecca, to pursue glassblowing and expand his skillset. He started on home benches at first, then the inevitable move to Cornerstone, and finally he landed in a private studio where he was able to work with well known artists. Austin lists Banjo, Hugh Salkind, Jake Mizer, Cowboy and others as his major influences. Cowboy and Banjo stand out as the major artists who inspired the Midnight Glass style, and he does collabs with them to this day. Midnight Glass is blowing heady glass in Eugene to this day, and we are stoked to add his clean shaping and crisp linework style to our gallery!
This is a linework hammer made with Northstar’s Experimental Green by Midnight Glass. The Agua Azul fire fade linework looks great against the colors of the Exp Green. Exp Green will produce 4 different colors depending on the temp of the flame it’s worked at. Here the blues and greens stand out and they look fantastic. Shaping is really clean and tight on this. A small decorated dichro cab sits on the right side of the hammer. Linework down to the mouthpiece looks great! Small Agua Azul marble on the face of the can. Quality work by Austin of Midnight Glass!
5.25 inches long, 1.75 inches wide with can and carb included, and 3 inches high. A clean hammer that is on the small side of medium. Beautiful linework by Midnight Glass out of Eugene, OR!
