Glow Glass studio is a fully equipped glass studio in Oakland, California.
GLOW was started by Alex Abajian in 2010. Like many glassblowers Alex just always wanted his own shop. Starting with the furnace and equipment from a studio in Taos, NM where he used to work Alex plumbed everything in and started his studio in a large warehouse in Oakland, CA. From there the space has evolved with the addition of new people and equipment. GLOW is the second home of many bay area glassblowers and artisans. The large warehouse has also been and continues to be a temporary home to artists with large scale projects that need the space, equipment and knowledge that Alex has to offer. As owner/shop tech/everything Alex is a leader and has a unique ability to stay calm and steady in the middle of multiple projects while finding solutions that see projects to a successful end.
GLOW glass is a studio where working professionals can rent time, space, and equipment or hire Alex to fabricate projects large or small. Private glassblowing classes are also offered for all levels. GLOW Glass Studio was built to grow and adapt to the needs of the people using the space. You can contact Alex for consultation on upcoming projects you may have including public art, production glass blowing, one of a kind custom pieces, and private lessons.
