Our History


The studio of Dallas Glass Art was started in November 2013 by Carlyn Ray to have a place to share her passion for glassblowing with the community and create her own site specific art.

She transformed a 1950’s Texas welding warehouse into a professional glass blowing studio to expand Carlyn Ray Designs, work with the community through Dallas Glass Art and also continue her outreach program – Art Reaching Out. Dallas Glass Art expanded in 2022 to the Brook Hollow location allowing additional class offerings and gallery space.
