15 years ago I visited the studio and purchased a beautiful piece that I still display proudly. Visited again today and saw the same beautiful artistry from years passed, new pieces and the vivid colors I love! First time watching the glass-blower!

Very impressive how the glass transforms into different colors and shapes as they twirl the glass when it’s hot.

Outstanding!!! Went there expecting just a shop. We saw the owner making a vase. Oven was 2100 degrees. He made it seem so easy. Beautiful pieces, very reasonably priced. They ship too. Highly recommend visiting this place. What a hidden gem and great surprise.
