Glassroots Art Show

The Glassroots Art Show is an annual borosilicate glass art trade show and convention in Madison, Wisconsin. The art show is an event for both glass art enthusiasts and industry professionals. Every year, for almost a decade, dozens of borosilicate glass artists from around the United States congregate to share knowledge and sell glass art. Glassroots hosts a unique education project for new and advanced lamp workers to improve their knowledge and skill base. Therefore glass artists come together to learn from other artists, tool makers, and raw material suppliers about techniques and insight into the Functional Glass Art Industry. The glass art show also hosts a live flame-working demonstration for the public to enjoy. After the trading and b2b work is finished, art show attenders join to watch the industry’s greatest talents.
