Around the 1:25 mark of this video, the champagne spontaneously combusts.
That’s how bubbly Morristown’s Glassworks studio is. Even the corks can’t contain themselves.
The place reflects its founder, Stacey Schlosser, who this month celebrated 15 years in business.
She knew nothing about glass fusing when she started. In fact, she thought it was daffy until she visited a friend’s glassblowing studio in upstate New York.
Now, Schlosser’s basement studio on South Street hosts parties for kids, corporations and everyone in between. People make decorative plates, plaques, paperweights–anything you can imagine, Schlosser and her team probably can help you make.
It’s a Top-50 destination in New Jersey, and a passion for Schlosser that she fits in with all her other passions: She serves, or has served, on boards of the Morristown Partnership, the Morristown Women in Business, Sustainable Morristown and Temple B’nai Or, while raising two kids with her husband Bill Schlosser.
“I’m completely indebted and grateful to Bill, and to the kids, for always understanding that mommy had to go to work instead of being home,” Stacey told a gathering of friends who included Mayor Tim Dougherty, who gave her a hug and a proclamation.
Glassworks brings between 10,000 and 15,000 people downtown every year, by Stacey Schlosser’s estimate.
“Morristown could not be a hotter place now, and I hope a little bit of what Glassworks has brought has helped Morristown become what it is,” she said.
Just be careful whenever they bring out the champagne at Glassworks. It has a mind of its own.
