After leaving the bicycle swap meet at Community Beer, a friend and I rode our bikes up out of the Dallas Design District, along Lamar through Downtown, and into The Cedars. It was an artists open gallery tour for some of the artists in the Cedars – an event I had been looking forward to.

Our first stop was at Bowman Hot Glass – a glass studio, showroom, and workshop. The place has a very artistic… almost Santa Fe feel to it. But it is obviously a hard working studio – dedicated to the art of blowing glass. While we visited a two man team were making glass pumpkins.

Bowman Hot Glass offers glass blowing classes – which looks more than a little interesting… more hard work than fun. But that’s a good thing.
