Founded 45 years ago in Portland, the parent company has grown to cover multiple square blocks of the city’s booming Eastside Industrial District. Another division, Bullseye Projects, works directly with glass artists from across the nation and around the world to promote their creations in kilnformed glass–that is, glasses of various colors that are fully and permanently fused together in the intense heat of a kiln…Bullseye Studio, meanwhile, focuses on the challenges inherent in custom interior design or architectural glass projects that combine fine art and practical purposes.
