This is an exhibition of works from Bullseye Glass Co.’s biennial juried competition honoring outstanding contemporary kiln-glass design, architecture and art.

Bullseye Glass Company is a manufacturer of colored glass for art and architecture founded in 1974 and based in Portland, Oregon.

Kiln-glass (or kilnformed glass) objects are made with glasses tested as compatible for fusing when heated in a kiln.  This exhibit reflects the expansion and evolution of the medium and its community. “Tg” refers to the glass transition temperature that lies near the center of the region in which the material shifts between behaving like a solid and behaving like a liquid.  This metamorphosis embodies the ethos of kiln-glass, the transformation that occurs when glass softens and yields to the fierce heat of the kiln.

Featured artists represent 15 different countries, including Argentina, Australia, Canada, Germany, Ghana, Hong Kong, Iran, Italy, New Zealand, Russia, South Korea, United Kingdom, United States and Venezuela.
