A Hot Shop is Born at the Niche Modern Glass Studio
It's on! With gas now feeding into the new furnace, we decided to load it with a bit of cullet from Spruce Pine Batch to make the warming a bit more interesting. In Beacon, NY, at Niche Modern's nearly complete glass studio, a 1000lb Wet Dog gas furnace has been installed and has now begun charging. Currently at 144 degrees, it will rise in temperature to around 2000 degrees in the next 3 days, and remain at that temperature until the end of history, or until it is in need of maintenance.
