Glass blowing studios are plentiful in Oregon. There are at least a dozen in our county alone. But since we watched the television competition series, “Blown Away” on Netflix, it has given us a whole new appreciation for the art and incredible skill of this medium!
It’s a fascinating series, even for someone who doesn’t care for that kind of reality-based, voyeuristic, competition style show (think Top Chef, Chopped, America’s Next Top Model, etc.). “Blown Away” is dramatic but not in the way, say, a Real Housewives episode may be.
The drama comes from the artisans passion for glass-blowing, the creativity, the dance, the athleticism, the act of making something beautiful out of hot, molten liquid. We literally were blown away by this series and highly recommend it!
