KETCHIKAN, Alaska (AP) — Terry Leberman, a local glass artist, exudes the fervor of a convert when he talks about making glass art.
“Oh God, what a feel,” he said, grinning and swooping his hands to imitate the motions of learning to blow glass at a Whidbey Island, Wash. workshop.
“It’s exciting,” he said.
Leberman’s studio is a labyrinth of several connecting offices downtown Ketchikan. Finished and in-process glass pieces gleamed on work surfaces and brilliant sheets of glass jutted from vertical shelving.
