It is always a great pleasure to watch an artist at work! To watch Mr. Ziemke create a stemless wine glass in just under 12 minutes was truly amazing. I appreciate the remarkable skill necessary to create art.

Doesn't take long to browse the small shop, but you could spend a lot of time watching the glassblower doing his thing. It was very interesting to watch and the end results were breathtaking. Definitely worth going to visit!
