  • Make a reservation for studio time by calling 509-627-0266 or emailing info@BarnardGriffin.com.  
  • Bring your own tools and Bullseye glass. No glass will be provided. Glass may be purchased during open studio.
  • GlasTac and glass cleaner will be provided.
  • A db Gallery staff member must be present.
  • Kilns must be programmed by a db gallery staff member (or under a staff member’s supervision).
  • Projects must be composed entirely of Bullseye glass-including accessory glass like dichroics, frit, stringer, etc. Items like metal foils, nichrome wire or other materials deemed appropriate by the db gallery staff member in charge may be used.
  • When designing your pieces, factor in our shelf dimensions (about 21″ square for a GL-24) plus a ½” distance between your piece and the shelf edge, in all directions.
  • Choose slumping molds before designing your pieces. Molds may be fired together with others to fill a complete kiln, if the firing schedules are similar. Note: Dimensions listed in the catalog for slumping molds are for the mold at its largest points and are not intended as glass-cutting measurements.
  • Studio storage space is non-secured and limited, you may rent space in the studio, and you must pick up your fired pieces in a timely fashion.
  • With notice it is possible to arrange to bring in projects for firing outside of Open Studio. Call or email info@barnardgriffin.com to make arrangements. You will have limited workspace and 30 minutes per shelf to assemble your pieces.
  • db Studio will not be held responsible for damage to items left on the premises or projects that fail due to customer negligence or error.db Gallery and Studio -878 Tulip Lane- Richland. WA 99352- 509-627-0266
