About ouzel

Ouzel Glassworks
is the studio of glass artist Laura Aspenwall. Her studio is located outside the town of Winthrop, Washington just east of the North Cascades National Park.
Laura's studio is named for a small aquatic bird common to the Methow River which flows nearby.
Laura began blowing glass in 1995 at the Pacific Northwest College of Arts in Portland, Oregon. In 2002 she and her husband moved to the Methow Valley and together built her glass studio.
The Ouzel, also known as the Western Dipper, is the Methow Valley’s only winter songbird.
