The Ohio City Glass Homepage

Ohio City Glass is a small glass art studio located at 3821 Lorain Ave in the Ohio City Historic District of Cleveland, Ohio. We offer instruction in the art of glassblowing in an intimate, small class size format, catering to most any age group and experience level. In addition to our mission to share the glassblowing experience with the residents of greater Cleveland, Ohio and the surrounding region, we also offer custom glass by commission, from the smallest bead to full scale chandeliers and sculptural installations. Other popular services include but are not limited to special items such as memorial glass sculptures (often incorporating cremated remains into molten glass), unity ceremonies in glass for couples, some glass repair and reproduction.   Our hours are appointment only during the week with public hours during the weekends, 10-5.
