WELCOME to MONKEY BOY ART
Changing the American Glass Industry
Monkey Boy Art is glass company changing the American Glass Industry. Founded in 2015, the company has taken huge leaps and bounds from its humble beginnings. Benjamin Kemph and Maayan Gordon founded the company shortly after getting married and both spent hours daily on the torch, and hours every day connecting with customers via social media, mainly the company’s Instagram page @monkeyboyart.
We immediately found there was a hole in the glass market for high quality dabbers, carb caps, and pendants at prices that weren’t going to empty your pockets. We also found that there were far too many customers who were being ignored by other artists, so it was decided that every single follower, fan, customer and person we interacted with would be given full attention, respect, and best service that we could provide.
In January of 2017 we were able to move from our house work space to a small shop located on York Blvd in Spokane, WA. At this point in time we were able to hire our first full time glass artist employee. We currently make up a 3-person team and will continue to expand as we grow.
We quickly outgrew that first shop and sales continued to increase and so did our Instagram following so we decided we needed a bigger location, one that would allow us to grow as quickly as we could. We searched and found the perfect warehouse space to convert into our Glassblowing studio and store combined. We moved into the new space on Wellesley Ave in May 2018. It’s a 4500 sq ft space that currently has 3 bench spaces set up for Glassblowing and tons of room to grow. We are in the process of setting up a Dab Lounge and we have a display and store section for all pieces available for sale.
