This lovely studio was almost directly across Market Street from our room. We were able to watch the glass-blowers at work and purchased a beautiful bowl as a souvenir at a price that was very reasonable. I'd highly recommend stopping in and buying a hand-blown treasure.

Clean! Acceptable place to enter, and browse. Friendly people, not pushy. Very assisting to your admirations of each piece, explaining about certain artists, local or from far. Everyone should come here, and at least look, if you are near. I Never felt intimidated as I looked around.

We were walking by and the window display caught our eye. We had to go in to see the beautiful glass artistry by local artists. We bought some jewelry and glass ornaments. Definitely gorgeous glass art at reasonable prices! Go check it out. You will be glad you did!

This small shop was recommended to me by a coworker and it did not disappoint. They had a nice selection of beautiful glassworks in all price ranges. It tends to stay open a little later than some of the other shops too, making it convenient for those not able to get to the Gaffer District during the daytime hours.

Vitrix Hot Glass Studio on Market Street in the Gaffer District of Corning offers a wide variety of contemporary art glass from several glass studios for sale. The Vitrix glass-making operation is located at the rear of the store, but no one was blowing glass when we were shopping there late one Friday afternoon in July 2017.

Vitrix art glass is truly lovely, but I am - sadly - only giving a 3 out of 5 rating to this attraction. After we returned home from our trip, we realized that the piece of Vitrix art glass that we purchased in the shop at full price has a defect in it. There is a seconds area in the back of the shop, and this piece should have been for sale at a reduced price in that seconds area.

Buyer beware: Check all pieces of art glass very carefully prior to purchase at full price at the Vitrix Studio.

A must-see in Corning -- interesting artisan-made glass from their own studio, plus other artists from around the country. The big plus is the glass studio is right at the end of the store, and when the artists are working, they're happy to talk with you.

One of the coolest experiences ever! We happened to walk in while window shopping. What we saw was amazing. The working studio was jaw dropping. Several artists were working together. They were very friendly and informative. They explained the process and dazzled us with their skills. We must have spent and hour just watching them work. Well worth a visit.

Whether you collect the white glass snowman or are looking for jewelry, this is a great stop while in Corning. It is not a large space, but there is quite a variety of artwork in different styles from modern to traditional, and they have seasonal items, which makes it great for gift shopping. When we were in they had a number of beautiful glass pumpkins, but also had their collection of white glass snowmen and a new companion piece of Christmas trees. If you are lucky, you can watch the glass blowers work, and the staff is friendly and happy to answer questions.

Stopped here during our visit to Corning and found the perfect souvenir of our visit to Corning...a little glass pumpkin. All sorts of beautiful glass on display and for sale.

Other than the Corning Museum this Gaffer District shop is the best place to visit for glass in downtown Corning. Lots of reasonably priced glass and occasional demonstrations.
