We got at the Gallery when they opened, and had called the day before to check if Tom and his assistants would be working that day. We really enjoyed watching them all work on a beautiful piece of art glass. The gallery is gorgeous.

Great variety of glassware, both local and national artists represented well. In addition, you may luck out and see the glass workers in action since the showroom looks into the working area. The pieces for sale range from lovely glassware to unique (and pricey) large...More

Anyone with a love of blown glass art will be thrilled to walk through this gallery. Pieces are expensive, but they are certainly worth the high price. Some days you can watch, through a large plate glass window, as an artist creates a beautiful piece...More

A combination shop and gallery and glass blowing "factory." Stunning glass art, most of it for sale at reasonable prices. And fun to watch the glass production if they are working when you are there.
