ABOUT


Fire Studio is currently the oldest and only operating glass studio located adjacent to the bourbon trail in Bullitt County, KY. The studio was built to be a creative glass studio & gallery with an emphasis on educating the public on the art of glass blowing. The 6000 square foot studio and gallery located just South of Louisville opened in 1996.

Fire Studio operates 50-60 hours a week, producing hundreds of pieces that are sold in galleries, gift shops, and boutiques across North America. We have a small, but experienced staff of five, including three glass artists who have almost 50 years of combined glass blowing experience.

Even though Fire Studio uses modernized equipment, the essence of working with glass remains an ancient art. Our visitors watch as Fire Studio artists mold 2125˚ hot liquid glass using a process requiring a creative mind, dexterous handwork, and stamina to create lasting glass objects of desire. Throughout history, the basic knowledge and techniques of glass blowing have been highly coveted and held sacred. During our studio tours, Fire Studio artists will walk you through those basic steps of the ancient art of glassblowing. For our tours and create-your-own glass masterpiece, no previous experience is required and our sessions are available for everyone.
