Unique and beautiful glass work. We went for an outdoor light and while pricey they use Hubbardton Forge for the metal light which has lovely finishes and we happened to have a few of their pieces so we could select from known finishes.

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.

Stop over from Fredericksburg back to Houston was worth the 30-45 minute visit. Watched a small ball of hot material turn into a beautiful open lamp shade. Timing of visit was spot on, as they had just begun a new session ... could watch from...More
