Doug Frates is an art glass designer whose studio, Doug Frates Glass, is located in Springfield. Frates works primarily with designers and firms to create one-of-a kind art glass creations suitable for apartment lobbies and building community rooms, hotel lobbies, restaurants, poolside patios and more.
But Frates’ artwork can also be commissioned by private individuals for residential display. His work is mesmerizing, with gorgeous colors, swirling patterns, lovely textures and the mystery of the glass itself.
Dougâ€™s exhibits regularly win â€˜Best of Showâ€™ at the venues that he supports, and his company continues to entertain requests for custom colors, shapes and sizes to be presented as elegant accents for both commercial and residential applications.
