Our Journey

It’s A Blast! Glass Gallery - "Blast" slang for a very exciting or pleasurable experience or sandBLAST!ing the technique used for creating our art.  

After taking classes at Philabaum Gallery in Tucson, we were excited to express our artful selves using glass as our canvas and sandblast as our process.  What started as a hobby showing at arts and crafts fairs while creating the glass in our friend’s storage shed grew into a full-time passion for Phil.  The studio expanded to a rented incubator business space (a glorified storage unit with a swamp cooler), a storefront gallery with a palm tree growing through the roof, and our current (and yes) final location. 

We launched the gallery offering our handcrafted personalized, sophisticated, and whimsical sandblasted glass drinkware, home décor, and custom gifts and awards.  In addition to the sandblasted glass, we show a variety of our favorite artists' work we have met along the way. We believe “There is Art in saying…. Thank you, You're appreciated, I Love You, Congratulations”, realizing our gifts and awards fill our customer's unique needs.  We take great pleasure in knowing that we make it easy for our customers to express their personality or gratitude through our art. 

We know that every purchase comes from a real person.  When you order from us, we pack your items, triple-checking, and double-boxing to ensure you get what you ordered, hopefully in perfect condition (we are at the mercy of our shippers).  We ship all items from our gallery and studio in Tucson, Arizona.  And if you are unhappy with your purchase for any reason, drop us a note or give us a call.  We aim to make it right.

Thank you for allowing us to help you.
