Big News! We are Expanding to a New Location in Olde Town Arvada!
Starting in January we will be opening in a bigger and better space a block away at 7513 Grandview. Above is a picture of our future location. This move will allow us to expand in a few ways: we will be increasing our custom work and repair offerings, a dedicated classroom that will allow us to expand our class offerings, and an expansion of our collection of art and modern craft items.
We are excited about this new stage for Balefire and look forward to seeing you in our current space through the 28th of December and in the new location starting in January.

For the month of December, Balefire Goods welcomes ceramicist Melinda Laz with her show, Suspended in Time.
This recent series of ceramic photo portraits by Melinda Laz is based on her own family photographs. She has reimagined them, blurring the faces of the subjects so they may become universal stories of anyone’s family, and offering the viewer opportunities to invent their own narratives. Further, the small scale, roughness and acrylic paint wash technique make them feel precious, intimate, muted and rooted in the past.
Join us for drinks, snacks, and a wonderful evening celebrating local art at the opening on Dec. 6th, from 6 - 8 pm. In addition to our opening, Olde Town Arvada is a great destination for First Friday with openings at Vouna, The Cereal Box, Hunter Bay Coffee Roasters, and more.
