Glass Art Studio Name
2/9/2013 at 12:33 PM ET
I am a fused Glass artist with a new studio located in my northern Florida Beach Home. Eventually I would like to teach my art out of my studio but for now I am concentrating on "making my art" and selling to the public both on line and by doing shows. I have played around with many names, but they are either taken or don't seem catchy enough or seem to cliché. Some of my ideas are The Beach House Glass Studio, Just Add Glass Art Studio, The Studio on 98 (my home is located on Hwy 98) and Glass Diva Art Studio among others. I work primarily with fused glass but occasionally dabble in other art forms. I would like to keep my name out of the title. It would also be nice if the suggested name was not already taken so that I can use it for a website as well. I am hoping someone can help me end my "name my art studio" dilemma so I can get on with my life! Thanks

Instead of "The Studio on 98" you could go with just "Studio98 (of Florida)"

I think the approach you're taking is right. You want the word "glass" and either "art" or "studio" in the name. Both of these work:
Beach House Glass Studio
Glass Diva Art Studio
Both domains (.com) are available.
While the name is important, it's not nearly as important as showcasing your art, so that people can see how it will fit into their own homes and lives. Start thinking about how you will generate awareness among your primary target audience, and how you will present your work so that it really communicates your message.

1. "Glass"nost = reference to openness

Of course, Michael has given you some good advice. You stated that ".. but occasionally dabble in other art forms". So you might want to consider " Studio 98 Glass Art" or some variation of this name. The "Studio 98" part of the name could work for any future artistic direction you choose. e.g Studio 98 Neon Signage, or another speciality. Or you could go with something like "Studio 98 Artisans" as your over all brand name, and then handle more specifics with a tagline that clarifies your artwork "fused glass" and ?? for your specific target audience.
I think names with numbers stand out and they are easier to remember. But I admit, it's just my bias.

Comment for mygoodman
You say the that two of the names Beach House Glass Studio and Glass Diva Art Studio domains (.com) are available. Can you recommend a website (other than godaddy.com) where I could register a domain?

I have used
and found them to be reliable/competitive for both registration and hosting.

The see-through diva (also free)
Glass Diva (glass-diva is free as a .com)
translucent diva (it's free)
What do you think? M xx

Since "fused glass" art is different from "simply" glass art, I'd encourage you to add fused to your name to make it clear you're not doing beach glass or glassware. For some name suggestions: FusedGlass98.com, FloridaFusedGlass.com, or GlassFusedWithLove.com (all domains currently available).

1and1.com also offers free private domain registration, something handy to avoid a source of spamming.

I am considering all answers at the moment. I am leaning toward one name for my studio, like Beach House (Glass) or (Art) Studio, as that seems the most compatible with my location and my art and another for a website. I really like the Fusedglass98.com for a website name. Is this too confusing?

Fusedglass98 sounds fine - as long as people know what the 98 means (as in your highway 98 will mean a lot to locals). M

Also - FusedGlassOn98.com is available, and makes the "98" a bit less obscure. Yes, you can have a domain that's different from the name of your business, but having them identical makes for a stronger naming "bond".
