About Melt Glass Art Supply-
My mother, Annie Myers, started this business in 2002 specifically to meet the fusing needs of the hobbyist and small studio owner. In 2012, myself (Sheri Spurlock) and my husband (Ted Mumford, aka Murrini Man) took the reigns and opened the storefront in Vancouver, WA! Since then, we have grown and now also cater to lampworkers, glass blowers, stained glass artists, mosaic artists and pretty much anyone with a passion for glass. We have recently started offering classes in stained glass, mosaic and fused glass.
We have the capability to service all levels of artist, from the part-time hobbyist to the full-time professional glass artist! Our goal is to provide an outstanding variety of reasonably priced glass products, to make your shopping experience informative and efficient, and to deliver your order promptly and accurately.
We operate our business from a storefront at 502 Washington Street, Vancouver, Washington where we welcome artists to come in and browse our huge selection of dichroic, sheet glass, rods, tubing and supplies. We understand that not everyone lives close enough to stop in, so we hope that our website will make you feel like you are right here in the store with us! Please contact us if you have any questions or special needs. We are happy to help!
We are a retail business only, no wholesale pricing is currently available.
Shop hours are 10am – 4pm PST, Tuesday thru Saturday.

About the Glass –
We carry an extensive selection of dichroic glass from CBS (Coatings by Sandberg). Sheet dichroic glass is available in 4 x 4 in. squares, and CBS Quarter sheets, as well as scrap glass sold by weight. We also carry CBS Dichroic Frit and Stringer.
We also stock Bullseye fusible sheet glass available in 4″x4″, 8″x10″ , half sheets and full sheets (we can only ship up to 16″x10″ pieces), as well as glass rod and frit.
Our stained glass selection is continually growing and becoming more varied.
About the Classes –
Our classes are very diverse and cover a range of skill levels and techniques. All of the project classes are geared towards beginners and require no previous experience with glass. Beginner classes last 4 weeks and include unlimited open studio time to complete your class projects. Workshops are 4 hours long and include an additional 4 hours of open studio time to work on your class projects.
We rent our kilns and studio space for those artists that just need a place to create. Tools are included in the studio rental, and the artist provides the rest. Our kiln rentals include fiber paper and/or thinfire, and our molds are also for rent and prepared for you so they are ready to use. We have standard firing schedules for full fuse, contour fuse and tack fuse. Anything outside of those options we will need you to provide a schedule or we can work with you to develop something custom. We do not provide kiln time for drop vases, combing, or other high-maintenance firings.
