We enjoyed our time here. It was a different date idea. It should definitely be a place to visit. Everyone was cool and quite helpful.

What is not to like? We love glass! Especially colored glass. This stop can be totally free or you blow a ton of money on gorgeous art.

Interesting to watch creation in action! Our visit was perfectly timed to watch visiting glass artist Alexis Silk create a sculpture from scratch with Paul Nelson and their assistants.

Make your own glass snowman!The process is guided by owner Mark, but becomes uniquely your own, as he guides you through the steps of adding the face and any extras. We had lots of fun, took lots of pictures, and thoroughly enjoyed learning about the...More
