Local glass artist Filip Vogelpohl
By Leslie Fuger
Filip Vogelpohl likes to make marbles. And if you twist his arm, he may admit he's an artist. He is content receiving little fanfare at all despite being a talented glass artist and one of the first to attempt creation of a five-inch Borosilicate Vortex marble. Borosilicate is hard, Pyrex glass, like a cake pan, and very heavy. Wearing a protective suit and full mask, Vogelpohl spends over eight hours in front of a 2,300-degree torch forging a giant marble.
