PLEASE TOUCH THE GLASS
With over 6,000 square feet of open space, Third Degree Glass Factory houses two distinct art galleries. The East Gallery displays the work of local artists who work across a variety of mediums such as photography, painting, fiber, printmaking, and sculpture. Our Hotshop Gallery, adjacent to our Hotshop glassblowing studio, showcases the glass artwork of over 35 different glassblowing, flameworking and fused glass artists, all made in the studios at Third Degree.
The Hotshop Gallery features a beautiful assortment of Third Degree glass artists’ artwork, kept on a regular rotation by the artists themselves. There’s something new to see every day!
Every time you purchase a work of art from our gallery, you are not only supporting our locally-owned business, but also the independent artists whose livelihoods are dependent on artwork sales. We guarantee that all artwork you purchase is created locally and your money is going directly back into the local economy.

Naturalized by Luisa Otero Prada
nat·u·ral·ized: “Established plant that lives in regions where it is not indigenous”
“I have always been moved, when I see a flower or plant from the region where I grew up; this series sprang out years ago without knowing.
“Art has always been part of my life. I was born in the land of Magic Realism and I love it; my intention is to create Visual Magic Realism in my work. The beauty and exuberance of nature and people are my deepest inspiration to paint.
“It is weaving all the layers and threads of my life, my cultural background and my emotions, that I feel complete when I paint; the gold, the fibers, the textures, they are always there, as witness of my heritage and companions of my search, as I continue my journey as a woman, as a mother and as an immigrant, that doesn’t change, somehow it becomes stronger and more universal, I believe.”
