Stone & Glass will be hosting a grand re-opening event at their new location on November 11th from 1pm – 7pm. Seven months after the fire closed them down, Stone & Glass is ready to open!
New Location: 629 W. Grand Ave, Escondido, CA
When fire destroyed their beloved studio on Simpson Way, it didn’t take their spirit. NOW, they are rising like a phoenix from the ashes! The new gallery is larger and will feature the work of James Stone as well as the works of other select talented artists. There is also a new viewing area for guests to watch the glass artists in action from the comfort of the climate controlled gallery.
This event will include light refreshments and live entertainment. There will be demonstrations scheduled throughout the afternoon and some limited “walk on glass” experiences. RSVP on their Facebook page to attend.
The grand re-opening celebration is a great opportunity for you to be one of the first people to check out the new digs and place orders for holiday gifts.
With a purchase or pre-order, you will automatically be entered to win a Holiday Ornament Class for Four (valued at $220!). What better way to send your upcoming holiday presents, than a beautiful art piece made with love. For more information, go to: stoneandglass.com.

James Stone is an Ocean Conservation Mixed Media Sculpture Artist. He is most noted for his aluminum and sculpted glass pieces. He creates sea creatures and marine-themed sculptures that portray the ocean’s diverse flora and fauna. Most pieces portray a message of eco-awareness forged within them. His process of casting glass hot out of the furnace, directly into the sculpted metal, is unique. His technique combines metal and hot cast glass with painted accents. He creates and teaches at his studio located in Escondido, California
