Jim Bowman Glass, is one of the original creators of the Cedars Open Studios. Jim and his wife have been developing their expression in glass in Dallas since 1978. Nov. 19th at 5pm they share that expression every year by doing a live demonstration, out of their 5,000 square foot studio, located at 1419-c Griffin St. This studio is a favorite every year!
Four years ago, I discovered the Cedars Open Studios Tour and realized I had found the place where I wanted my studio to be.
