About db Gallery & Studio

This well-equipped Bullseye Kiln-glass Resource Center is housed within Barnard Griffin Winery, one of the largest winemakers in Washington State. Co-owner Deborah Barnard opened the kiln-glass center in 2008 and now splits her time between running the db studio and producing artisan wine with her husband, Rob Griffin. She offers kilnforming workshops, a large inventory of Bullseye glass and supplies, and a gallery displaying fused works. Barnard Griffin is situated near the confluence of the Yakima, Columbia and Snake Rivers in south-central Washington—in the heart of the state’s wine country.


Education is central to the mission of db Studio, which offers an array of kilnforming workshops for students at various skill levels. Deborah Barnard is the resident artist/instructor. Check the website often to see the schedule of current offerings. Future plans include a new outdoor covered kilnworking studio. Architectural plans will be on display during the Open House.


Glass Supplies: 10–6 daily

Gallery: 10-6 daily
