Dedicated to

in all forms of glass


North Carolina Glass Center, founded in 2014, is a nonprofit arts organization dedicated to education, exploration and collaboration in all forms of glass.

NCGC is the artistic home of 30+ professional glass artists and has delivered educational programming to 7,000+ students and artists since its inception.

NCGC has supported the work of the Western North Carolina glass art community by providing over 5,000 hours in studio rentals over the past two years and by representing the NCGC artists and instructors in the NCGC Gallery, which has sold nearly 10,000 objects since opening in 2016. We hold a position of respect with galleries, institutions, organizations, and the media as a leader in Western North Carolina’s glass movement.


NCGC Gallery is open 7 days/week from 10a-6p.  

Our Flame shop is open Tuesday, Saturday and Sunday.  

The NC Glass Hotshop has demonstrations and classes Wednesday- Monday.

We look forward to seeing you soon!
