Description

Ignite Glass Studios has transformed a spartan West Loop industrial building into a glass blowing studio, educational facility and elegant event space. With its state-of-the-art glass-working environment and flexible spaces, Ignite fosters arts-based learning for everyone from under-resourced youth to visiting glass artists. Gallery spaces show a rotating mix of work by those affiliated with the studio. Artisans on staff create a signature line of products—making it a true working studio. With its gracious garden and rooftop deck, Ignite is a distinctive place to appreciate the art of blown glass.
