Overview

For those interested in learning to blow glass, we have amazing private art experiences, small group classes, corporate team building events, and a gaffers curriculum. With Advance notice we can accommodate events occurring morning, evening, or on the weekend! Pieces in our gallery are non-production, artist signed, art glass created by a San Antonio artist available for immediate purchase. Our custom work spans from sculpture & installations, to cremation memorials, to custom lighting or full replacement of glass shades for an existing fixture. Caliente Hot Glass is an Art Gallery & Studio that uniquely provides a venue for glass artists to hone and showcase their art without creative interference. This provides for a greater authenticity - and variety - in the expression of each artistic vision. Patrons interested in custom art commissions work directly with our artist or artists.

Ruth and Glen were absolutely amazing. Six girls learned all about glass blowing and the love of the art. They were patient and made sure we enjoyed the experience and also created some beautiful pieces! Can not wait to do it again.
