Owner Barrio Glassworks
Barrio Glassworks is the realization of a family dream. After a serendipitous accident derailed their winter plans in 2012, the Raskin/Devlin family landed on the famous glassblowing island of Murano, Italy. Like so many others, Drew, Mary and Gary were transfixed as they watched master glassblowers at work, not realizing they were about to embark on the journey of their lives. Drew Raskin, an emerging multi-faceted artist, fell in love with the form and it was not long before his parents did too.
Barrio Glassworks is the vision of Mary Devlin, who grew up in the Mission Hills neighborhood of San Diego. As the family spent time with glassblowers in Seattle’s glass community, Mary was taken with the intricacy and collaborative spirit of the craft. She soon developed a passion all her own and in the heat of the moment took the next big steps to turn dream into reality.
