Firenation Glass Studio and Gallery is hosting their 5th Annual Great Pumpkin Blow. It's a free event where you can come into the studio and see live demonstrations on how to make glass art.

The live demonstrations will be hosted by Matt Paskiet, the owner and artist of Firenation, and Nadine Saylor, a glass arts instructor at Bowling Green State University.

This years celebration has a spider theme. They'll have Halloween movies for kids and refreshments will be available.

Paskiet says making glass is fun and rewarding work. "I learn something new everday that I work with glass, and my respect for it grows as well," says Paskiet.

Firenation offers a variety of classes and events on making glass art and can provide supplies for area artists to make glass sculptures.
