Hughes Glass Studio, Wildflowe i






              Welcome to Hughes Glass Studio  /  Wildflower Sculptures in Glass



                           Tucked away in my studio near the Blue Ridge Parkway in the beautiful Appalachian Mountains of North Carolina,  I have made my blown glass wildflower sculptures for 40 years.  This web site is intended to give you (my loyal and new collectors) better access to my newer glass flowers.  All sculptures are "for sale" but all may not be currently available .  Visit our different glass galleries by ckicking on the above photos.  You can also scroll down this page for lists --by year-- of our newest flowers & awards - ( page down ).     


Call (336) 359-2600   or   Contact Us  to get more details on our  flower sculptures or to talk custom work (i.e., sizes, prices, etc. )   

if  contact link doesn't work please type   then  "found your website" in subject line .
