Mark your calendars for our January Eco-Hour hosted by Glassworks, Inc. at their glass studio and showroom.
For over 40 years, Glassworks has been a top choice for designers and homeowners looking for beautiful and functional custom glass. Join us at Glasswork’s showroom in Seattle to see samples of their work and witness the fabrication process first-hand! Glassworks is certified as both a LEED business and as a Woman and Minority-Owned Business in the State of Washington. Determined to make the company and their fabricating process more sustainable, owners Tish Oye and Steve Shahbaghlian are deeply committed to greener building practices. The company’s beautiful new series of recycled glass countertops are made from pre-consumer recycled shower doors. Glassworks also heats their cutting and polishing rooms with heat generated by the kilns they use. See the Glassworks Featured Member profile.
