AMAZING collection of original hand-blown glass of all types. We stayed 3 hours and were treated to several artists working their magic at the kilns. The staff was very accommodating, and the prices are well within everyone's budget if you want to pick up special items like we did, or small things for Yuenger children. The showroom is expansive and... More

The glass collection is stunning. I have always found art made with glass media intriguing. The unique pieces in this studio while somewhat expensive are well worth the money. Our family went together for a glass blowing session to create tree ornaments. The associate was very informative and took the time to explain what was happening in every step. We... More

Doug Sheradin and his staff are really nice and helpful people. They put on a great show blowing glass and tell you all about the process while they're doing it. The Glass Festival is a blast. Highly recommend it.

Yes! You can blow your own glass ornaments here! You just need a reservation. We called and made an reservation for that. It was fun to see glass blowing up close, and blow one yourself. You don't need to pay to watch. You do pay for the ornaments you blow and a bit extra. The artist did a good job... More

My son and I enjoyed a lot the visit. They accommodated him to blow the glass even though we arrived a little late. Suggest you call ahead of time. You create your ornament and it is shipped for a total of $50 approx. otherwise you can just watch others do this.

My sister in law and I had a wonderful time assisting with the blowing of our holiday ornaments. Dan, the master glass blower, was fun and informative! The prices may be a bit expensive per ornament but when you factor in the expertise, especially when you actually see it, weighs in. You pick up the ornament the following day or... More

Just killing time before a dinner we discovered this place. Awesome local items and a show to boot. We saw a couple of glass pieces being created and were able to ask many questions. Highly recommended!

We loved our experience of blowing glass pumpkins. The staff were great at accommodating us and the fellow who did the blowing experience was so kind. Really worth it! Also they offer a teacher's discount!

The man who spoke about the art of glass blowing and making was very nice and he answered everyone's questions. We went to the showroom and found such an assortment of glass art. It was difficult to decide which item(s) to buy. We will defintly return to this studio.
