Art of Fire Contemporary Glass Studio began in 1984 when Foster Holcombe and Theda Hansen lit their first furnace at the Maryland Renaissance Festival in Crownsville, Maryland. A short time later, they established a small gallery and hotshop at the Historic Savage Mill.
Art of Fire outgrew that space and in 1999, and lit the furnace at their current location, a re-purposed dairy barn in northern Montgomery County, MD. The barn is now home to their gallery and hot shop where Art of Fire works, teaches glassblowing classes
enjoys making glass for their customers.
