Overview
More
Icefire Glassworks is a working hot shop and art gallery that makes finely crafted blown glass. We feature the work of James Kingwell, Suzanne Kindland, Michelle Kaptur and Mark Gordon. We also carry fused glass (abstracts by Robert Tamis and landscapes by Steven Krig), as well as beads and jewelry by Pamela Juett. Visitors are invited to watch while work is in progress. We are open every day during the summer, and Thursday through Monday during fall, winter and spring.

I could not even look at the glass sculpture after having been to the Chihuli in Seattle a few days earlier. Amateur stuff.

Hi Chescat, We are truly surprised by your review. So many people who walk through our door say that our glass is very beautiful. Perhaps someday when you visit again you will see it with new eyes. Regards,

Glass blowers were not in house during high season. Glass arts present were over budget. The location is convenient if Cannon Beach is you primary attraction.More

This is a well established studio of blown glass art. Blown right in front of you. Many beautiful pieces to choose from. They have classes too.

Hi Dwight! We're glad you enjoyed our shop. One thing though...we don't offer classes at Icefire Glassworks, but visitors may watch the resident artists as they create.

Lovely works of art, interesting to watch them being made, not for the budget conscious. Small parking lot.
