We missed the actual glass blowing but the pieces in the shop were beautiful. It was like a museum. I got a beautiful glass bowel with amazing colors. These pieces would make a unique wedding or shower gift.

We were there with young kids (yup, we took the risk of them in a glass studio). Kids and adults enjoyed watching the glass blowing demos and perusing the shop. Very friendly and informative staff!

Slow down and take a side trip to watch this studio in action. It’s fascinating to see the color crystals take shape into the finished product. We could have stayed for hours watching the beautiful creations being made.

We went on a Wednesday and missed the maker and him actually doing stuff. Might be worth calling ahead to see.

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.
