An exhibition of artwork by Bullseye employees
December 1, 2014 - January 31, 2015

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, which shows off pieces they've made after hours in the factory and in their own homes and studios, was held at Portland Resource Center gallery.
