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 clicking 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  hughesglass@skybest.com   then  "found your website" in subject line.

Thanks everyone for your support during our recent Winter Park Virtual Show.   We will be participating live the weekend of May 14th in Winter Park in booth #51 on the  street.


We are very happy to announce that we were selected to be featured in Southern Edge Magazine's March 2021 issue.





You've got to check out our shop on the 62nd Winter Park Sidewalk Art Festival 's virtual Art Fair .  Since the LIVE EVENT had to be pushed out to Mother's Day weekend -  so Chris and I  are  honored to have two opportunities to present our work to you through this very prestigious nationally ranked Art Fair.   Here's your link:
