All reviews glass blowing blown glass beautiful pieces on display beautiful glass glass art works of art glass works for sale small glass talented artists fun to watch price range answering questions all ages vase suzanne
Beautiful but way out of my price range. Lots of people watching the artists so I couldn't see much, place is small too. The glass is truly gorgeous if you want to buy a special piece but I hope it gets home in one piece.

Thanks, Penney, for your nice review! Should you find something you like, rest assured that we can pack your piece for car travel, or for delivery by UPS or US Mail anywhere in the world!
It is a small glass art gallery but the pieces there are just beautiful. If you want to see the artist at work she only works Thursday through Sunday. Sadly we arrived on a Monday. The gallery is located in midtown Cannon Beach.
A worthwhile stop in Cannon Beach is the Icefire Glassworks. The finished products are lovely art pieces with a wide variety of choices. Watching the glassblower at work is a treat as is the opportunity to visit with him about his art and design styles....More

Thanks for the great review, MiaAmica...we're glad you enjoyed the experience!
This was our first time here and we greatly enjoyed the event. People start lining up at 7:30 am for their 8:30 opening. They even serve pastries while you wait! There are lots of repeat customers and we plan to make this an annual event....More
We've seen many glass works places. This place tops our list. Looking is free. And there are many innovative pieces to view.
Glassblowing happens on the extended weekends... so if that's important to you, plan accordingly. They have a small parking lot and are located...More
I could not even look at the glass sculpture after having been to the Chihuli in Seattle a few days earlier. Amateur stuff.

We are truly surprised by your review. So many people who walk through our door say that our glass is very beautiful. Perhaps someday when you visit again you will see it with new eyes.
Glass blowers were not in house during high season. Glass arts present were over budget. The location is convenient if Cannon Beach is you primary attraction.More

Hello Travelcat, we blow glass Thursday through Monday, from roughly 10:30 am to about 3:00 or 3:30 pm. We need Tuesdays and Wednesdays for loading the furnace and making a new batch of lovely, clear, molten glass to work with. There are some variations to this schedule from time to time, accommodating vacations and maintenance to the equipment, so it's always a good idea to call ahead (503-436-2359) to make sure.
