A great find. Mark, the owner, was very welcoming. He gave a demonstration of his glass blowing, explaining the process in detail. He makes beautiful pieces. Well worth a visit when you are in the area.

I have an addiction to glass and this gallery is well worth a stop. Some very unique pieces, It too a while for me to choose the one item I would buy. You can watch the artist blowing glass if he's in the shop.

He also has some pieces of pottery from a local artist and they were gorgeous.

Only open for two hours a day, this studio had an amazing display of innovative glass creations. We were dazzled not only by the creativity in form but also the interesting techniques used to create texture and colour in the glass. The artist/owner was a great conversationalist and we learned so much from his fascinating explanations and stories. The conversation itself was well worth the trip, but you'll find you cannot leave without at least one of his unique creations.

Really enjoyed our visit to Armstrong Glassworks. The demonstration was excellent - he explained every step of his process and is personally most charming and hospitable. It's really worth stopping in to admire his talent and creativity and to learn about the process of glass work.

The owner is wonderful and it is so cool to see him create something right in front you! I watched him make a cranberry coloured tumbler and he explained the whole process as he worked. There is a lot of seating in the workshop. The gift shop is beautiful and sleek. The pieces are incredible. The colours and intricacy of the pieces, the sheer beauty of his work is beyond words. It’s worth a look.

I bought several large glass ornaments to hang in the window, to prevent birds in flight from flying into the window. Stunning colours and very reasonable price.
