Overview
More
Rosetree Blown Glass Studio and Gallery specializes in the creation of blown art glass in the Venetian style of furnace work. We have one of the largest contemporary art glass galleries in the South. 99% of the work in our gallery is created in our in-house studio. You can watch masters of the glassblowing art manipulate molten glass using two-thousand year old methods. We are just a short 8 block walk from the Algiers/Canal Street Ferry terminal through a bucolic neighborhood. Stroll the quiet streets of the second-oldest neighborhood in New Orleans. See our gorgeous houses and churches and stop for an adult beverage at one of our top-rated bar rooms. The Ferry does not take passenger cars anymore, although some GPSes will try and take you on it. If you want to drive to the studio, please call for directions.The charge for pedestrians on the Ferry is $2 each way. We are open M-F 10:00-4:00 with a lunch break 12:30-1:30. Please call for Saturday hours.

Algiers
Sitting pretty across the Mississippi River from the
rambunctious French Quarter, the Crescent City’s
second oldest neighborhood is as historic and as
scenic as any – just a lot less showy about it. With
its numerous 19th and early 20th century homes and
plentiful parks and riverside green space for cycling
and walking, subdued and low key Algiers yields the
best views of New Orleans and offers a quiet haven
