This is a fully operational glass blowing shop, where you can get up close and even try your hand at blowing molten 2000 degree glass. The artisans are usually working producing all kinds of glass art from vases, bowls to paperweights and sculptural pieces. Come browse the gift shop, or just stay and visit. It does get warm so can be very nice in the winter!

What a cool place. Unlike some shops where the glass blowers are aloof, the ones here encourage you to visit them in the shop and yak about their art. The range of lovely gifts in their shop range from $15 ornaments to complicated floor lamps made from copper and blown glass for $5-6k. However, they have many beautiful gifts ranging... More

Walked in and was amazed by all the glass art in the showroom. All the guys there were, really nice and informative. I decided to go ahead and make an ornament.... More

Every time I go, I buy another wine glass to add to my collection of artisan made glasses. This place is entertaining and a wonderful place to find a gift for yourself or a friend!

We almost always take our visitors here. The staff is very friendly and if you have kids, bring them here and depending on what they're working on, they'll have your kids get involved. The store has lots of gift ideas, from $5 to $5,000. Go crazy, man.

The store is full of gorgeous dishes, vases, ornaments, and globes. Everything is beautifully displayed and it is very interesting to watch the artists at work. A good stop in Grants Pass.

My girls love watching "How it's Made" with their dad. So this was awesome for them to see! No appointment necessary. Just walk in and watch them work. The two guys working were happy and willing to explain what they were doing, and answer our questions. My kids loved it and did my husband and I. Very fascinating! We bought... More
