We loved watching them create the hand blown glass pieces. We even ordered a beautiful paper weight!

I have visited Zimmerman's lots of times over my lifetime. It never gets old to watch this talent in person. Kerry is always eager to show and tell the history of hand glass making. If you go to any local estate auctions and there are pieces of Zimmerman art, you are sure to pay a pretty penny for it. Not... More

This place has been in corydon for many years. A family owned business. They have beautiful crafted blown glass items great for many occasions, birthday, wedding gifts etc. they will give you a guided tour with explanation of the art of blown glass.

We stopped here while in Corydon and I was not disappointed. It is basically just a garage/workshop with a gentleman making glass. Nothing fancy, nothing commercial. It is like going over to a friends garage to hang out. Kerry Zimmerman was very nice and did a glass blowing demonstration for us and the other families who had stopped by. He... More

Kerry Zimmerman is very talented and was giving a demonstration to 50 children while we were there. I think it would be impossible to leave without a purchase. He is friendly and his factory is small and he makes you feel like a friend.

A lost art that the Zimmerman's have kept alive! Wonderful pieces of art and a great demonstration. If you have never been you have got to go to see the masters at work.

Zimmermans is a Corydon landmark. Everyone seems to love their work and many have some sort of Zimmerman glass in their home. The factory is very interesting - and certainly has a home town feel.

The man who makes the glass creations is the 3rd generation to share this lost art. He makes all the glass pieces that are sold there. It's fascinating to watch him turn a glob of molten glass into something usable.

Just a small place to watch glass blowing. They could do a lot more to cater to tourists. Sign is very small and they could have more products to choose from.

There is history in this art glass business that parallels that of the first capitol of Indiana. Tragedy and heroism mark milestones in the Zimmerman family business. When in Southern Indiana this work space & showroom are a must see. You will love their product & the experience. You will want to take home a unique piece of inexpensive art.
