This project is an investigation of current glass making technologies for the purpose of reducing the energy consumption of the glass art community. Sustainable practices, renewable resources, and innovative technologies are pressing topics under discussion around the world. It is important for glass artists to realize their reliance on fossil fuels and be proactive in their efforts to reduce this expenditure. This paper will discuss the original research study on energy efficiency and the development of www.GlassArtEnergy.org, a user-friendly archive of credible resources about ways glass artists can reduce their energy expenditure through equipment maintenance and the use of renewable energy.
