This glass blowing studio offers fine local crafts in a friendly shopping atmosphere; the glassblower will answer questions if he is not busy. The shop will arrange to ship purchases for you. Right off Route 100, the shop is easy to get to with plenty of parking.

We got to see him at work which was pretty cool. He is very talented. The shop has many of his pieces for purchase. Simple to extravagant glass options to buy. Worth a quick stop in.

Fantastic to see the glass maker in action when we stopped by. So worth the quick visit and add insight into how it's done -- and mesmerizing for all ages!

Small but very nice. Great glass items to purchase. Very friendly. Easy to find and get too. Stopped and sat and watched two men make a glass fish, very interesting.

Great little place. Got to see the man working on his projects and the shop was clean and beautiful. The woman at the register was very friendly and helpful. I got 2 "friendship" glass balls. They were so stunning and the price was cheaper then any others I found in the town.

Stopped in while visiting the area and was able to watch a piece being made. The cashier provided a running commentary on what was happening and also answered questions. Lovely little shop with interesting pieces on display. Pleasant way to spend some time.

What an incredible skill. We had the opportunity to watch as the owner made a glass pumpkin. It took more work than I realized! Definitely worth purchasing a piece here.
