Working in the Neon, a Short Profile of One of the Last Neon Light Artists

David Ablon is a professional light and glass artist working and teaching neon light classes out of Brooklyn Glass in Gowanus.

In this video from Vimeo uploader Jessica Catwright, we hear Ablon talk about the dying artform and his passion behind it.

You need to feel it… you need to feel the heat… you need to feel the glass melting in your hands… you need to feel the electricity. And we always say that if it’s dangerous and there’s no fun to be had, we don’t do it.
