Charles & Michael Riley
Riley Art Glass Studio in Hot Springs, Arkansas, is a partnership of two brothers, Charles and Michael Riley. They have come together to focus their artistic talents on the art of glass blowing. After experiencing various art forms, they have both found a passion for glass blowing to express their creativity. Their inspiration comes from a combination of natural forms and emotion.
Charles was trained in glass blowing at Penland School in North Carolina by master artists. He also worked as an assistant to master glass blower David Goldhagen in North Carolina.
Michael has always loved art. He had focused on oil painting but discovered he also shared the glass art passion with his brother. They joined forces and started their own studio in 2006.
