Lubbock Texas is home to Texas Tech University and a growing population of 261,000. It is more of a
quiet town than a larger metropolitan area. Housing and cost of living are more affordable that most
towns. Traffic is light, which makes it quite easy to live here. Texas Tech University, while not offering
programs in glass, does have a robust School of Art with BFA and MFA opportunities.
We are immensely proud of our current team of glass blowers and staff. We are proud that our
glassblowers have all worked for us for a while, from 5 to 7 years. We aim to supply a creative and
