North Carolina Glass Center is dedicated to education, exploration, and collaboration in all forms of glass. 



North Carolina Glass Center is a non-profit, public access glass studio and gallery. Our low-cost shared studios help emerging artists launch their careers and enable established glass artists to pursue new and ambitious challenges. Our gallery showcases the finest work from undiscovered to established glass artists in Western North Carolina. Our educational programs provide thousands of aspiring glass artists with high quality, affordable instruction. Our community outreach programs provide safe spaces for veterans, youth and marginalized individuals to learn the science and healing power of glass.



Equity: We respect and value diverse life experiences and cultures. We believe all voices are valued and heard. We are committed to modeling diversity and inclusion and to maintaining an environment with equitable treatment for all.


Sustainability: NCGC advocates for more sustainable practice in the creation of and accessibility to glass art. To this end we are lowering our carbon footprint 25% by 2025 by committing to energy efficient solutions in our studios and galleries. We are investing in electric furnaces and equipment, LED lighting, sustainable glass recycling programs, solar energy, and are moving to all recyclable or compostable packing materials.
