Welcome to the Pacific Northwest Glass Guild (formerly the Oregon Glass Guild) website! Our membership has always had members outside the state of Oregon and now our name reflects our broad membership! Here you’ll find information about us and our activities such as shows, meetings, and classes. Techniques and media used by members include fusing, blowing, casting, painting on and/or with glass, stained glass, acid etching, mosaics, sand carving/sand blasting, coldworking, torchworking, and more. Enjoy browsing our pages to learn more about glass arts, see some of our work, and find upcoming events.
