Incredible works of art in glass. And they offer glass blowing demonstrations. Just a short drive from San Marcos. Educational for children AND adults. You won't be able to resist buying a piece.

Wouldn't go too far out of the way, but if you happen to be in the area, this is an awesome little place to stop! Watching the glass blowing demonstration was fascinating for both the kids and adults alike. Nice showroom featuring pieces for sale.

Nice little show and explanation of glass along with a little demonstration throughout the day. Beautiful items like, paper weights, lights, vases, novities etc. They also offer custom designed items. Bring your credit card because you probably do not carry that much cash on you....More

Far too expensive to buy anything (items are in the $100++++ range) but it was a nice stop just outside San Marcos. They have demonstrations every 15 minutes, so it was a nice stop with a friend to watch them and look around. More of...More
