Art by Fire is a glass school and gallery on Front Street in Issaquah. We teach glassblowing, lampworking and jewelry making. We enjoy sharing our love of glass with everyone!

We'd love to teach you to make beautiful glass or help you have a fun glassblowing experience. We have beautiful glass of our own for gifts or your own enjoyment too.

Our team:

 Laura Hancock - gallery

Laura - Gallery / Artist

Laura finds the best way to display the beautiful glass at Art by Fire and keeps the rest of us on one page. Laura's favorite part of her job is being inspired by the artists and their creations. She is also a freelance photographer with a focus on nature.

Heath Conner, glass artist

Heath - Lead Artist

Heath leads the glassblowing artists and  teachers for our glassblowing classes. Heath draws inspiration from the rich history of glass blowing, current events, nature and science fiction authors such as Philip K. Dick and H.P. Lovecraft. Heath has his MFA from BGSU and has studied with Maestro Lino Tagliapietra.

Art - owner - artist - instructor

Art - Owner / Instructor / Artist

Art teaches our glassblowing experiences. He sees glass as the way to capture and preserve movement and moments in a timeless way. Art's family had a technical glassblowing business for three generations before him so a love of glass comes naturally to him.

Sharon - Owner / Artist

Sharon's favorite thing to make in glass is fish. She likes to incorporate a sense of whimsy into her art. Sharon and Art started blowing glass after Sharon got Art lessons for a 25th anniversary present. The bucket list item got completely out of hand when they both got hooked!
