After studying ceramics in college, Jim Kingwell began blowing glass in 1971. He founded Icefire Glassworks in 1975, representing his own work. He moved to Cannon Beach, Oregon in 1991, and set up shop at the place where Bill and Sally Worcester used to make their glass.  


Since then, Icefire Glassworks has grown to represent several artists, each of whom has an abiding love for the Pacific Northwest and a connection to Cannon Beach specifically. Today, the gallery features the work of Jim, Suzanne Kindland, Michelle Kaptur, Mark Gordon, Kathleen Sheard, Tony Parker, Steve Krig, Robert Tamis, and Laura Bowker.


Our focus is on glass art that showcases each of these artists' talents and dedication to skill. While we typically offer one-of-a-kind pieces, there is limited custom work available.  


We are following CDC recommendations for the safety of our clients and our staff. Face coverings are required, and we are currently limiting the number of people to 6 plus staff. We are open Mondays from 10:00 to 5:00, and Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from Noon to 5:00. We are also able to meet with you separately by appointment. 


We are happy to work with our clients and send photos of pieces that meet your color preferences and price range requirements. Contact us at 503-436-2359, or icefire@theoregonshore.com.

Happy Holidays!
