Honoring Alan Hinton

The team at Glass Eye Studio was so proud to create a piece of art in celebration of Alan Hinton, which was presented to him at A Night with Alan Hinton & Friends, hosted by Washington State Legends of Soccer and Sounders FC.  

Designed by Glass Eye Studio's Creative Director Piper O’Neill and created by Lead Gaffer Chris Steffens, the one-of-a-kind handblown glass sculpture was made to honor Alan Hinton for his many accomplishments as a fixture in the Washington soccer community, and the greater Pacific Northwest. 

Billy O'Neill was on hand to present the award as both the owner of Glass Eye Studio and someone who counts Alan as a dear friend and one of his biggest influences.

As a player and coach for the Sounders, Tacoma Stars, Vancouver Whitecaps and a number of other teams, Alan has left an indelible mark on the game in this area and Glass Eye Studio was thrilled to be part of recognizing him.
