Info: Bullseye glass is colored glass that's manufactured for use in art and architecture. The glasses can be used for stained glass and mosaic work, and most are tested-compatible for fusing and other methods of forming glass within a kiln.

The company is a significant supplier of raw art glass for fused glass makers. According to Art Glass Magazine, production control at Bullseye's U.S. plant is more consistent than imported products, allowing it to fuse reliably.

Our tour will be led by the founder of the company and the plant manager.

Tour participants must wear long pants and closed-toe shoes and be at least 13 years old. Factory ramps are not ADA compliant and tours are unable to accommodate some physically challenged individuals.

Photography is not allowed on the factory floor or the Resource Center without prior permission.
