Join the Small Firm Forum for an inspiring tour and large-scale demonstration at John Lewis Architectural Glass Studios. The studio has created a diverse collection of cast glass sculptures, decorative vessels, and one of a kind tables, benches, and pedestals.

John Lewis Glass has been producing the finest architectural cast glass since 1969 when John Lewis opened his studio in Oakland, California. Since then, the studio has created a diverse collection of cast glass sculptures, art glass bowls, decorative vessels, and one-of-a-kind tables, benches, and pedestals. Today, the studio continues to push the envelope at executing the vision of architects, landscape architects, and designers worldwide.

John Lewis Glass collaborates on site-specific architectural projects and special commissions, incorporating its hand-crafted cast glass into immense and unique sculptural and functional designs in a variety of environments. JLG also works with interior and landscape designers to execute unique furniture and functional cast glass designs that add distinction and value to projects. From a pool-side bench to flights of glass stair treads to custom-coated countertops, the applications for cast glass are endless. Limited-edition art glass pieces can also be commissioned as originally designed or custom tailored to harmonize with specific installations.
