Downtown Duluth is known for its art scene, and one shop celebrated an anniversary by getting more locals involved with glass blowing.

Lake Superior Art Glass has been going strong for two years selling hand-blown glass from regional artists. Owner Dan Neff also teaches classes at the shop and some customers got a free lesson on Saturday during the anniversary celebration.

Jenean Nelson was excited to craft her first glass pendant.

“I'm not sure what it's going to look like. I have no idea,” Nelson said. “I've never tried glass blowing. I'm up for a lot of things, and I thought it would be interesting to come in here and see what they have.”

Making a pendant is just the beginning. Lake Superior Art Glass has more advanced lessons where customers can learn to torch glass into a wine goblet. There are evening and weekend classes open for anyone that missed a shot at a free lesson.
