Blown Away’s third season will air on Netflix on Friday, July 22, 2022. The first glass-blowing reality TV competition will include ten finalists competing for a $60,000 cash prize and a residency at the Corning Museum of Glass in New York.
Each week, presenter Nick Uhas and resident assessor Katherine Gray will select a topic, and participants will be asked to make unique glass works, after which a glass artist will be removed every week.
Brenna Baker, the inventor, and director of Hollywood Hot Glass is one of the ten finalists on Blown Away Season 3 and began her career as a glass artist when she was 14 years old. Her fascination with glass, on the other hand, began when she was three years old.

The Blown Away contestant had signed up for a glass-blowing workshop at the Corning Museum of Glass in Corning, New York. She studied the principles of both the mechanical and aesthetic components of creating functional yet beautiful glass art here. She spent a year as an apprentice to one of the world’s finest glass sculptors, Pino Signoretto, in Murano, Italy. The glass artist Blown Away toured the world with the Hot Glass Show at the Corning Museum of Glass aboard Celebrity Solstice class ships, demonstrating her abilities and the trade of glass-blowing.
She spent the next many years studying business and working under several exceptional glass artists all around the United States of America.
She went on to become the company’s second female gaffer and the youngest Master Gaffer (glass blower) at Steuben Glass.
Steuben Glass is a famous glass master in Federick Carder’s American fine glass and crystal business established in 1903. Corning Glass Works purchased the brand in 1918, renaming it Corning Incorporated. While conducting seminars at the Corning Museum of Glass’s Studio in New York, the Blown Away candidate gained significant information and perspective.
Brenna Baker’s Hollywood Hot Glass
In June 2013, the Blown Away finalist took her first steps toward her dream of becoming an independent glass artist by opening her studio, Hollywood Hot Glass, in South Florida.
Initially, they debuted on Groupon to offer live demos, but the studio has grown so popular that it is usually full. The studio has also received a lot of attention from local news networks, particularly National Geographic, which has accelerated the process.
According to Baker, the best part is being able to share her passion for glassblowing with the rest of the world. In an interview with Parkbench, she stated:
“I believe it’s always fulfilling because of the fact that so many people appreciate it never gets old. The fact that so many people like the glass-making process is the most satisfying element. It’s an incredible privilege to be able to share it with them. I believe every individual that writes in the reviews, “this is the finest experience of my life,” I’m like, oh my gosh, it’s such a pleasure to hear that.”
