Rembering the Glassblowing Barn

The Chamney House glassblowing barn was a unique feature of the K.U. campus. It was situated in a remote section of the western reaches, by the motor pool, out past Iowa street near the par-three golf course on 15th street (AKA Bob Billings Parkway). My friends Steve O'Holleran and Dierk Van Keppel spent many hours there creating original works of art. The old studio is no longer used for glassblowing; it's part of the center for design research studio, but Dierk continues to work with glass. Read Edie Hall's story in the Kansas City Star.
