We were really impressed with the quality of the glass art in their gallery. Some of the pieces were exquisite. From the subtle to the extraordinary, this is the best place in town. In the studio you usually can see artist blowing and manipulating glass. Well worth a visit.

This is a wonderful way to spend the afternoon! The artists there were very helpful in explaining what they are doing and how they are doing it. The glass pieces in the shop for sale are Amazing. George O'Grady and David were very helpful. I would plan on a minimum of 45 minutes there and make sure you call before... More

Live glass blowing going on. Great selection of wonderfully colorful and creative works inside and out. Close to Shidioni to make for a multi faceted artistic experience.

Watching the process of making blown glass is really quite interesting and the fact that it didn't cost a thing to just sit and be mesmerized was just icing on the cake. I highly recommend adding this to your Santa Fe stops!

Best setting to watch glassblowing in Santa Fe. Great gallery and blown glass in a variety of prices. Be sure to visit Shidoni next door.

See the art of glass blowing, then shop for something in the gallery. Grab a bite of lunch at the market down the road. When in Santa Fe, treat yourself to this little gem.

Don't let the ramshackle appearance of the building deter you from an experience you won't forget. Instead you'll first see the gift shop. Everything there is created by the glassblowers at very reasonable prices. If you don't see what you want, they'll take commissions. You may want to call ahead to make sure they're blowing glass that day. It gets... More

This shop was filled with the most amazing variety of beautiful pieces. Add to this a proprietor who was super friendly and obviously loves his work. They offer classes as well, unfortunately out schedule didn't allow for us to take one. One of the friendliest places in town.

This is one of the most fascinating places that we have been. Call ahead if you are planning to go to be sure that they are blowing glass. They have a small observation area that puts you right next to the artists and it's amazing to watch them work. We would never go to Santa Fe without going to the... More
