Screen Shot 2015-12-03 at 11.49.41 AMCongrats to our Merchant of the Month – Elements Glass of Portland, Oregon. Just 3 days into December, they are receiving online bookings at a crazy fast pace with 157 so far – that’s more than 2 online bookings per hour!

Their Blow your Own Christmas Ornament workshop is a popular favorite and is projected to receive over 1,000 bookings this Holiday Season. If you’re in the Portland area, you can book your spot on their Facebook or Website and blow your very own special Christmas ornament!

Elements Glass became a PlaceFull merchant this November when we launched our new Online Booking resources built for Glassblowing studios as we mentioned in our post last week

In less than a month, they have seen some incredibly impressive results.

About Elements Glass – A Vision in Glass

In 1999 Ian Gilula and Aaron Frankel hatched a plan: to serve, guide and inspire a fledgling glass-art community. The real question was, “Where?” The turn of the century saw Portland topping “best of” lists in worldwide publications. Restaurants, hotels, rock bands, and civic ideas were winning awards and inspiring copycats. Artists could make a living and livability was off the charts. Add to that the natural beauty and outdoor recreation possibilities within an hour of Portland, and Ian and Aaron had found the new home for the artistic nucleus they were about to build. In 2001 they launched Elements Glass Art Gallery and Studio and became the largest glass blowing facility in Portland. Suddenly there was a place in Portland’s gallery district for local master glass blowers to not only produce and display larger pieces, but also to teach, learn, inspire, and collaborate with the growing local glass art community.
