About Us

“The future of glass is bright and I would encourage all designers and developers to get to know glass better and how to apply it in their future crafts.” ~Brett Lovelady CEO/Chief Instigator, ASTRO Studios A glass designer or a glassblower renders works for glass making it usable for various industries and for aesthetic purposes. A glassblower or designer is responsible for designing, producing, decorating and finishing pieces of glass. They mold glass to make glassware, stemware, and giftware, architectural glass, crafted glass windows, ornate items.
