The Studio features a furnace capable of melting 560 pounds of glass, three glory holes for reheating glass objects as they are being formed, five annealing ovens that slowly cool molten glass to room temperature and support mold-cast glasswork and fusing, and a flameworking table with space for eight artists to work on projects including beadmaking and sculpture using glass rods and tubes. Audio-visual equipment enhances guests' ability to see free glass demonstrations by our Studio Team, assistants, and artists-in-residence.

  • 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.
