The artist being here and blowing glass while we were there made it come alive. The hot room was closed but you could see artist at work thru the windows! He sells pieces from 10 dollars and up! Fun!

My daughter went with her granny and made a glass "bug". She loved it. They had her make it and then they agreed to mail it to us at home. Thumbs up on this one.

Beautiful glassware and you have the chance to watch it being made. Such an amazing art form. Free and worth the walk from center city.
