Glass as Craft

Our glass collection ranges from kitchenware to free-form sculptures and includes countless craft processes including hand-blown, fused, stained, flame-worked, recycled, and dichroic glass. One of the most volatile media to work with, our glass artists spend years learning techniques to master light, color, and texture. The mysterious qualities of glass are often cause for awe and wonder - and our collection will not disappoint.
