Carlyn Ray – Owner / Studio Lead
Carlyn Ray first saw glassblowing the young age of 8 years old. From that moment, her world was changed. For this reason, she is passionate about offering the opportunity for the public to experience this magical material. She attended The College of William and Mary on a full Volleyball scholarship and majored in 3-d art with a minor in Psychology, knowing she desired to continue her love for art and involve children as well. Her studies took her around the world starting in Penland, North Carolina to Alaska, a couple years with Dale Chihuly, a couple of years blowing glass as entertainment around the world with the Corning Museum of Glass on Celebrity cruise lines, to Austin and finally back home to Dallas, Texas! She started the studio of Dallas Glass Art in 2014 where she and her team make chandeliers, wall art, sculptures and custom pieces under Carlyn Ray Designs.
