About Working Glass

Working Glass 2014, an exhibition of artwork by Bullseye employees

Bullseye employees do a lot with glass: melt it, roll it, sell it, package it, ship it, and teach you ways to work with it. But they also love working with it themselves, and Working Glass is proof.

This annual exhibition shows off pieces they've made after hours in the factory and in their own homes and studios. The public is invited to visit the Portland Resource Center gallery and discover the artistic ability of the people who work in your favorite glass factory.
