Art glass "hand blown" at the
Following four months of intensive building, discussion, planning, and preparation (not to mention a tremendous amount of hard work), The Glass Forge Gallery and Studio of Grants Pass, Oregon first lit its furnaces on Memorial Day of 1998.
Glass Forge Gallery and Studio
The Glass Forge Gallery and Studio manufactures and sells hand blown glass, specializing in Venetian style art glass. The style is most apparent in the many wine glasses blown at The Glass Forge. Vases, bowls, perfume bottles, and one-of-a-kind sculptural glass art are also prominently displayed. The use of color, movement, form and composition are key elements in each piece of work created at the studio. There is a gallery for display and sale of products next to the studio. Additionally, sales are conducted on a regional and national scale. Individual items range in price from $15 to $5000.
The Glass Forge became a reality through the vision of three men who first met in the spring of 1994 while working for various San Francisco Bay Area glass studios: Lee Wassink (Nourot Studios, 1993 - 1998), Maurice Kreuzer (Smyers Studio, 1995 - 1998), and Nathan Sheafor (AlBo Glass, 1996 - 1998). As the partners of the new studio, each partner brings unique skills to The Glass Forge and contributes to a sum exceeding 30 years of "hot glass" experience.
