Burnt Glassworks was founded in 2014 by Andy and Jessica Peters to create work, teach glassblowing, and provide studio access to other artists in Northeast Florida.
Ed Malesky is an artist that loves creating beautiful objects from wood. He has always enjoyed working with wood but the focus on making art didn’t seriously take hold until after he retired from the paper and chemical industries. Although Ed had been making some wooden furniture before retiring, it was the advice of his financial planner who told him to buy something that he really wanted to focus on to commemorate his retirement. He selected a large professional lathe as his choice, and never looked back.
