GREENBRIER COUNTY, WV (WVNS) — There is more to The State Fair of West Virginia than just rides and food.
This year at the fair, you can pick up a new hobby. Award-winning glassblower Devan Cole wants to share his skills with fairgoers and pull some unique-looking guacamole bowls out of the furnace.
“They’re going to see the glass in a molten state. 2000 degrees Fahrenheit out of our furnace. We heat it up in a crucible that’s roughly 12 inches by 14 inches deep,” said Cole, the owner of Hot Glass Academy.
The Hot Glass Academy puts on demonstrations four times a day all week.
