Mosey is moving his business from Rossville Avenue on the Southside to 409 Broad St. in an effort to reach more tourists and the public.
Visitors to the studio can blow their own heirloom glass ornaments at Ignis. Mosey also sells his own glass art.
Mosey opened Ignis in 2002, and the move coincides with the studio’s 10-year anniversary. Mosey is thankful for the local support.
“I can’t believe we are already celebrating our 10-year anniversary,” he said. “We look forward to the next 10 years.”
It also coincides with the annual Gallery Hop event.
The Folk School of Chattanooga moved into Ignis’ old location.
