Amazing how they form their artwork. I think it's awesome they bring customers pics to life. That's not only sweet but thoughtful as well. My kids really enjoyed watching them make a cat. It was our first time there and I know we will be back.
Hot spot! Every day at noon (except Mondays$ experience a live glass blowing exhibition. There are frequently visiting artists from all over the world. It’s a thrill every time you go because it’s entirely different every single time. They also offer classes in glass blowing and jewelry making.
