About us

Our Mission

Vitrum Studio was established by Judith Conway and Kevin O’Toole in 2001 with the vision of creating a glass studio that could offer the best possible educational opportunities in kiln-formed glass and of helping our students to build a strong foundation in the techniques that lead to mastery of the medium.

The information we impart in our classes is an honest interpretation of our own extensive experiences and observations, along with the invaluable knowledge gained through collaborations with a network of long-established experts in this medium.

Our mission of focusing solely on the medium of kiln-formed glass gives us the freedom to offer a huge breadth and depth of information, materials and expertise. It is our hope that every class and workshop will be a magical experience for each student—bringing education, information, inspiration and new friendships in glass.

Now, in our fifteenth year, we enjoy a world–wide reputation as one of the finest privately-owned kilnformed glass studios and instructional centers in the United States. Students from Maine to Florida regularly travel to Vitrum to take our workshops. The prize for the longest distance traveled goes to a student from South Africa, but we have also had students who regularly travel here from all over Canada and across the United States.  We always hope to exceed every student’s expectations.

We are practicing artists who work primarily in the field of kilnformed glass, although we are intrigued with all aspects of glass and periodically dabble in lampworking and furnace work as well.

We are both recipients of awards in e-merge, an international biennial exhibition of kilnformed glass sponsored by the Bullseye Glass Company in Portland Oregon, winning awards in 2002, 2004 & 2006.

We both have work selected for inclusion in the Arts in Embassies Program of the United States Department of State.

Judith also teaches internationally, at Creative Glass in Zurich and London (www.creative-glass.com) and in Norway at The GlassForum (http://www.mamut.net/glassforum/).  You can see more of her work at her web site: www.judithconwayglass.com.
