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.
