The Glass Program at Ball State University encourages students to diversify their explorations of contemporary Craft, Design, and Sculpture - resulting in artwork that extends and redefines the boundaries of the media. We prepare our students for careers such as Fine Artists, Artist Assistants, Craft Artists, Studio Technicians, Gallery Assistants/Managers, Art Handlers, Designers, Equipment Builders, University Professors, and Public Art Studio Instructors. They leave the program with a historical and contemporary knowledge of glass as a material in sculpture and design. The Glass Program is housed in the Marilyn Glick Center for Glass, a $5 Million state of the art facility with equipment encompassing Glassblowing, Flameworking, Coldworking, Kilnworking, Neon, and 3D Printing. Upon completion of the program students will have developed a cohesive body of work that showcases their own unique artistic perspective.

Salem Community College Glass Education Center


460 Hollywood Avenue

Carneys Point, NJ 08069



Salem Community College’s new Samuel and Jean Jones Glass Education Center houses its Scientific Glass Technology and Glass Arts programs, and hosts a variety of workshops and events including the International Flameworking Conference. 

The Center includes a 15,000-square-foot studio/lab named in honor of world-renowned artist Paul J. Stankard, a Salem distinguished alumnus. The facility features two flameworking labs with 42 bench torch stations, a glass lathe area, a four-bench hot shop for glassblowing, coldworking area, kiln studio, fabrication studio, a shared studio space, and a gallery. 

The Scientific Glass Technology program -- which prepares students to fabricate scientific glass apparatus for research and industry -- is the only degree-granting program in the United States fully devoted to the development of this unique and in-demand skill. Graduates work throughout the U.S. and abroad using this specialized skill. 

The Glass Art program focuses on using the material creatively and learning a variety of glass processes. A handful of institutions offer glass art; however, Salem’s program is unique with its intense focus on flameworking, a process others do not address. Graduates transfer to bachelor in fine arts programs, start their own creative glass businesses, work at a variety of art institutions, work as artist assistants and teach.
