The Doug Frates Glass studio is shut down between July 21st and August 11th each year.

During this mid-July to mid-August period, we will continue to accept orders and check our email and phone calls. Please, allow a response time of 48 to 72 hour response time during our scheduled shutdown. Orders will have a lead-time of six weeks. To learn more about our process and lead-time, please visit our process page.

The studio uses this time for equipment refurbishing and upgrades. This allows us to keep our high standards of color, design, and shapes, while bringing the best quality to the end user.

The Frates family also uses this time to bond on their travels and visit different art communities.

Our team here at Doug Frates Glass attributes our success to you. We love to work hard for you in order to give you the best attention possible. With a high-energy atmosphere and an amazing staff, we can accomplish anything together.

If you ever have any questions please do not hesitate to call us at 614-623-5587. If you would like to visit us, we are by appointment only. Please, allow us to schedule you in anytime.

Each work of art is American-made art glass hand crafted from the highest-quality materials to ensure true, vibrant colors. We offer hundreds of color options, from fiery to tranquil, to complement any decor.


Custom works from Doug Frates Glass, often created at the request of designers and hospitality industry representatives, can be the perfect fit for any project.

We encourage submissions of design boards, photos, drawings, color palettes, fabric swatches, paint samples or any other information that will help us understand your vision for custom-designed glass artworks. We promise to walk through the ordering process with you to ensure your satisfaction.
