“Glassblowing is much akin to a dance. The artist moves with respect and knowledge of the partner. Each has an important contribution to the final piece.”
The first recipient of a Master of Fine Arts in glassblowing from Tulane University, Mark Rosenbaum opened his first studio using a grant awarded to him by the Louisiana Division of the Arts. He now makes his one-of-a-kind blown glass objects in a former Art Deco movie theater, just a ferry ride away from the French Quarter. In true New Orleans style, he celebrated the opening with a parade, complete with brass band, family, friends, and, of course, their glassblowing furnace.
