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.
