Owner description: Glass artist David Gappa founded Vetro in 1999. During that time, Gappa cultivated a team of glass artists who perform their art of glassblowing in Vetro’s state-of-the-art working studio. The studio and attached fine art glass gallery are located in the historic district of Grapevine, Texas. In addition to creating fine art glass, Vetro artists enjoy educating the public about this ancient art form through live demonstrations and hands-on events. Simultaneously, Vetro’s friendly and inviting gallery staff create a relaxed and comfortable gallery atmosphere in which to browse and shop.

Came to purchase "glass shards" to make necklaces and the cashier was wonderful! Our family also bought us a round grapevine grapes ornament as a gift. Love this place!!

Don't leave Main Street without a visit to Vetro. It's easy to miss, since it's not on Main Street. It's hidden on the sorth end behind a plain green building across from the train depot. The Vetro sign does not give any hints what the place holds.

Vetro is a blown glass studio with an active state-of-the-art equipment and professional glass artists. The front half is a studio that displays their glass and art that is for sell. It's cool in its own right. The real magic is through the gallery doors. Three small rows of stadium seating have been set up to watch the magic of glass blowing. What a beautiful art to watch.

As this is an active glass shop, they work during business hours. They probably are not there on weekends and nights unless they are leading a class. I really loved watching glass bulbs being made for a sculpture in a building being built in Dallas.

Just walking through the store, I was impressed by the beautiful works of art. May not be great for small kids or bulky strollers. But if you can catch a workshop, I think even little ones would enjoy it. The artists help you make your own item. Definitely plan ahead if you want to make something. Otherwise, be sure to check out the glass blowing area where you can watch the artists creating amazing works.

Booked the extreme ornament making for my daughter - she LOVED it and it was a great family experience with an awesome ornament as a memory of our Christmas visit to Grapevine. Highly recommended.

This place is a favorite when we visit Grapevine. Go inside the studio to watch the glassblower making a piece of art--very cool. He will answer questions as he works. Visit the gallery to view/purchase an item. You can even make your own item/ornament with advance reservation. The nicest people work here!
