Firehouse Glass - Glass Art Gallery - Visit us on First Friday for glass blowing demonstrations

Firehouse Glass Gallery
 Vancouver Washington north of Portland Oregon
 

Rebecca Seymour and Greg Lueck created the Firehouse Glass Gallery to support their mission: "To provide an environment for furthering the community’s exposure to and education in glass art, and to provide a collaborative forum for artists working in the glass medium." The spectacular gallery provides exquisite exhibit space for works by both emerging glass artists as well as nationally acclaimed masters.  

To capture the rare potential of the architecturally rich building Seymour & Lueck engaged nationally acclaimed Vancouver interior designer, Jayne Sanders.  Ms. Sanders’ charter was to create an inspired, innovative gallery space.  The result is a stunning visual experience—a study in the convergence of glass, color and light.  To achieve the striking display of the vibrant colors and hues embedded in the glass, each piece is illuminated with ceiling mounted lights—contrasting each piece against a back-drop of an all-black interior .in this 600 square feet of exhibit space.  Work for sale in the gallery represents a balanced range of emerging and established glass artists with an openness to experimentation and exploration.  Work made during the public demonstrations each week can be seen in the gallery space for up to a month after it was made.  Artists at Firehouse Glass are happy to discuss commission work if the special thing you are looking for isn't in our gallery.

          Demonstrations First Friday

Firehouse Glass Gallery is open each First Friday night of the month from 6:00-10:00 during our public glass blowing demonstrations, and by appointment throughout the week.  Public glass blowing demonstrations are an exciting way to see hot glass made into objects.  Each month a theme is chosen for the content of the demonstrations often based on a season or a technique. Glass blowing demonstrations for groups of ten or more individuals can be arranged by calling the office at 360.695.2660.
