The Physics Glass Shop is fully equipped to fabricate and repair research or instructional glassware. The Glass Blower, Eric Lindahl, works on a part time basis. View the Glass Shop Schedule​ to see the days when Eric will be working in the Glass Shop.

For scheduling work when Eric is not available, or for any other shop inquiries, contact the Physics Shop Manager at: (206) 685-4266.

We will need a Glass shopwork request (RTF) filled out. You can complete in it person by stopping by the shop or complete it on-line, printing and bring it with you.
