About The Maker

About Glass Eye Studio

(Seattle, Washington)

Glass Eye Studio was founded in 1978 with the mission to provide young glass artists the opportunity to make a living while they develop their artistic voice. Today, Glass Eye has multiple aspiring artists who work in conjunction with the core team of talented glass blowers who make the company strong.

Everything sold by Glass Eye Studio is made by hand in the Ballard neighborhood of Seattle. Because each item is produced individually, there can be slight differences among pieces, giving each its own artisian character.  Each piece that Glass Eye produces includes fragments from Mt. St. Helens 1980 eruption!

So many prominent glass blowers have spent time at Glass Eye Studio, that local artists like to say "All roads lead to "The Eye".
