Chris Barclay

Chris began his glass work career in Florence, OR and started selling his work in our gallery shortly after. A few years ago he got an oppurtunity to open his own Studio and Gallery in Lompoc, CA which he took. We still carry his work because it's hand-made and he got his start here on the Oregon Coast.

Chris specializes primarily in torchwork, but has also assisted extensively in the soft glass arena - particularly with Charlie Lowrie, a renowned glass sculptor. Recently, he's been working in soft glass on his own at a local Hot Shop.

Chris's torchwork is presently focused on wine bottle stoppers, pens, and small sculpture, of which he creates some fantastic designs!

Barclay's Glassblowing Studio


This section is intended as more a history of the work this artist has displayed over time at Ocean Beaches Glassblowing & Gallery, and not a catalog of what's currently available.  As such, it is useful more as a means of seeing the evolution of an artists' work, rather than a representation of what the artist is currently creating.  Techniques, colors used, and even form of color are elements that are likely to change over time.  Also, some pieces will be unique combinations of color and movement that artist may not be able to reproduce.

The gallery at Ocean Beaches Glassblowing & Gallery includes work from nearly 50 different artists, all from the Pacific Northwest, almost all from Oregon, and most from Oregon's central coast.  Whereas Bob creates his work exclusively within our studio, the other artists have their own studios in which they create their work.  Though our gallery basically just purchases their work to sell, we like to promote them in any way we can - which includes showcasing them on our website.  Their appearance here is in no way meant to imply that they work for Bob or for Ocean Beaches Glassblowing.
