Public Glass was formed to meet the needs of Bay Area artists working in hot glass, specifically glass blowing and casting. It has since expanded to include flameworking, fusing + slumping, and coldworking. Conceived of and started by Bob Bellucci, Polly Bradbury and Bryan Bowers and supported by dozens of friends and volunteers including the expert fabrication skills of Phil Burnham, Public Glass opened its doors in 1997.
Our Vision At Public Glass, we believe in the power of creativity for everyone, regardless of background or experience. That's why we're expanding our programs to offer more new experiences to more people. While we continue in our devotion to hot glass, we're intrigued by the creative and collaborative potential offered in the broader realm of glass art. As you browse our site, you'll see new classes ranging from photos on glass to glass mosaics, from solid working to a host of new glass blowing workshops. And, our classes and workshops offer something for all skill levels, from the beginner to the expert.
We live in a rushed world where it seems increasingly easy to postpone those experiences we jotted down as New Year's resolutions or promised we'd do "next month." If this sounds familiar, we'd like to suggest that right now would be a great time to explore your creativity while having a fun weekend with no cell phones, commuting or long meetings. You'll have to trust us on this -- you may not view yourself as "the creative type" -- but we know it's in there because we see people every day who discover the joy of creating and the excitement and beauty of glass art!
