Glass becomes works of art


Seward Hot Glass

In talented hands glass can become lovely works of art. And Ron Telposky has the talent.

He takes simple glass and creates likenesses of the creatures around Seward, beads and other objects.

Telposky has done lampwork glass work for 15 years. He got started after watching a friend doing glass and decided to give it a try.

A couple years ago he and his wife moved from Texas to Seward. She works at Alaska SeaLife Center.

Telposky right away set up a studio and got down to making glass objects for Sewardites and visitors.

This year he's taken his business, Seward Hot Glass, to the waterfront. He's the only vendor with a city permit to set up a booth in the city campgrounds.

Telposky said he'd like to see more vendors in the city space. He described the process as simple – the usual state, borough and city licenses, plus proof of insurance to obtain the city mobile vendor permit.

Telposky is between Madison and Jefferson in the Waterfront Campground.
