Floats made of blown glass have a long history, originating in the fishing industry for use with nets.  Though glass has largely been replaced by more "modern" materials for this use, glass floats have evolved to become more of a decorative item, serving as an ideal "canvas" for displaying beautiful glass colors.

Ocean Beaches Glassblowing is the exclusive source of the Oregon Float® brand of hand-blown glass floats that you'll find in a number of shops along the Oregon coast.  With the Oregon Float® label you'll find on each of our floats, you'll be assured that you're purchasing a locally hand-made piece of glass art.
