Get Fired Up with Barrio Glassworks

Barrio Glassworks

Barrio Glassworks is the realization of a family dream.  In 2012 the Devlin family spent time on the island of Murano, which is known for it’s glassblowing artistic community.  Their son Drew soon fell in love with the art of glassblowing and so did his family.  December 2020, the family opened Barrio Glassworks, igniting a spark of creativity the Village.  The eye-candy colors of the beautiful works of art draw many passerby’s to their open doors.   Barrio Glassworks has been a welcome addition to the city’s already vibrant arts scene.

Barrio Glassworks is located in the historic Barrio Community of Carlsbad Village. And they intend to honor the true meaning of the word Barrio (neighborhood in Spanish) by creating many inclusive opportunities within the community.  Talent from all corners of the globe will be welcome to practice their craft in the Barrio.

They have created an immersive environment to allow artist and novice to work side by side.  Community events will include artist residencies, live demonstrations, classes and studio rentals.

The first resident artist was Nao Yamamoto, a Japanese-born glassblowing artist featured in the Netflix show “Blown Away.  Yamamoto featured her work in May of 2021 to much fanfare.
