Glass Studio Director

Looking for a studio to call your own?

Do you want stability coupled with the ability to continue pursuing your passion for glass?
Enjoy being a part of something bigger than yourself and working with a team of artists?

In our 21st year of operation, TDGF seeks an experienced glass artist to manage our studio activities. Primary responsibilities will focus on the hot glass studio management. There is also a need for oversight of our kiln and flameworking facilities.

You will manage our team of instructors. Opportunities exist for growing our education offering and possibly creating a visiting artist program.

You will have many opportunities to create work on commission due to the continuous stream of inquiries for custom work. Experience, insight, and skill in this area would be a welcome addition to the position.

You would have the opportunity to build out a small production line/studio, should you be so inclined.

The right person will be excited to grow the business, allowing us to rebuild our team and bring on additional staff to fill a specific roles, such as a Studio Technician. However, at this time, our current sales do not provide a revenue stream to fill both roles. You’ll have to get your hands dirty.

Access to the studios to produce your work will be readily available and offered at the lowest possible cost to ensure your success as an artist and supplement your income as this is not currently a full-time role.

Administration and technical needs currently would require no more than 20hrs per week at our current workload. The balance of your time would be perfect for producing your own work in our facility.

Pay starts at $30/hr or an equivalent salaried amount for candidates with minimal relevant experience.

Interested? Use the form below to send over the typical resume, social media handles, website, etc. or email or really go old school and send your paper goods and portfolio slides via mail for bonus points.
