Experience glass in a whole new way
We strive to instill creativity and teach form and function to all glass enthusiasts, artists and guests...
We foster a studio environment that grows and enriches the creativity of others through actively engaging patrons to learn new skills, have access to renting studio time and/or to shop regularly with us for gift giving needs, glass supply needs, educational needs, or have access to skilled individuals that can support large scale architectural glass design and manufacturing.
Our goal is to launch and sustain a vibrant glass art studio that is well equipped with prime visibility and positioned in the community so that it can strategically accomplish the following goals on a weekly, monthly and annual basis:
- To engage, educate, and inspire all people regardless of race, age, culture, ability, background, ethnicity, and/or socioeconomic status.
- To enrich the community and other glass artisans with stimulating artistic and cultural development in working, designing, and manufacturing glass elements.
- To take an active role in the community, serving as a voice in glass art education, innovation, and inspiration.
- To foster an open and welcoming space for people to gather and experience glass art in all its forms.
This vision is accomplished by:
- Designing and manufacturing stained glass and warm/hot glass art productions for commission.
- Provide in-store shopping and an online store experience.
- Provide education in various glass art levels both accredited and non-accredited supporting youth and adult learning interests in glass art.
- Acting as the local glass supplier/distributor for purchasable raw glass materials/supplies. Raw glass supplies are needed for supporting outputs of education for students and other glass artisans or hobbyists in the area.
- Showcasing a gallery style setting of glass work produced on site providing a unique in store gallery shopping experience.
- Providing customer memberships where studio space and equipment will be available by purchasing rental memberships so hobbyists and glass enthusiasts have access to using the tools, equipment, and work in a space well suited to support creating works of art in the medium of glass.
