ESCONDIDO - The ancient art of glass blowing is a dying breed.

While that has worried one local glass blowing business, it has stopped them from churning out works of art. 

James Stone, of Stone & Glass in Escondido, described the challenging but rewarding art form.

"Glass blowing is more addictive than sex or drugs," Stone said. "I've tried all three and glass blowing is my favorite."

But sadly, Stone's addiction is not shared by as many people as it used to be.

10News' Joe Little spoke with Stone and his apprentice about their craft, the struggles, and had a look at some of the unique pieces of art they've been creating.
