I applaud what they're doing here. Glass blowing is an art and science and they're 1) teaching the craft to local citizens and 2) recycling whatever they can for future use. They were about to start using used fryer oil from local restaurants as their...More

The Green VI glass studio recycles old glass bottles into beautiful works of art. There is a wide price range to suit all budgets. They also train and provide jobs. The world would be a better place if we all did this more.
