Glass Blowing Quebec City

Workshop Blown Glass The Three Crows

The Three Crows

On the corner, at the foot of the stairs down to Little Champlain Street (rue du Petit Champlain) was a glass-blowing studio. Of all crafts, glass has to be one of my favourites: stained, blown, or etched. I usually don’t go into shops, but I did this one. Until travel companion complained of the heat. So I snapped a few photos, looked at the wares and we left.

Love the shoes (hers) Note the distortion behind the glass blower caused by heat from the furnace.

Still more of Quebec City to come, but first I must see if any of my Kelby Photo Walk photos are worth keeping!
