“impressed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2011

I loved my visit, my wife did too.I probably stayed too long but i enjoyed my visit to the viewing windows. Yes the finished products were expensive but what isn't, at least they were made in the U.S.A., ONE PIECE AT A TIME. The men in the shop were working in hot temps but the place was clean and neat. Kudos to them! The dog added a nice touch, I will go back.

“something to do but gift shop is expensive”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2009

Stopped here on my way home from cape cod to connecticut because i saw a clip on the travel channel about pairpoint glass. It was interesting to see how blown glass is made and they even let my young niece make her own piece of blown glass. The gift shop however, is rather expensive. Worth popping in and taking a look, but dont plan on spending a long time here.

“A great place to see glass being made”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2008

We were very impressed with our visit to Pairpoint Glass. Owner, Tom Fiocco, was mingling with browsing visitors and invited us to see the glassmaking process up-close by escorting us downstairs to the glassmaking area. While actively engaged in their workday, Pairpoint's glassmakers were also playful and friendly. One glassblower made a large witchball from start to finish, explaining his process along the way. When we later took interest in the Anne C. Ross Glass Collection, Tom invited us to another studio in the building, introduced us to Anne herself and we spent quite a bit of time observing her glassmaking and asking questions. We really enjoyed these one-on-one learning experiences in a true manufacturing setting. Not to mention, the glass is gorgeous! In addition to creating glass for customers ranging from the Metropolitan Museum of Art to Tiffany's, Pairpoint also manufactures for Sandwich Glass. While we enjoyed viewing the extensive glass exhibits at the Sandwich Glass Museum in neighboring Sandwich, Pairpoint provided the most memorable part of our Cape Cod glass experience. This is also where we did our handmade glass shopping!
