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.

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

If you time it right, you can see glassworks in progress. The shop is small, the items are beautiful (yes, we bought a vase which they will ship home for us).

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.

Hi Chescat, 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. Regards,

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

This is a well established studio of blown glass art. Blown right in front of you. Many beautiful pieces to choose from. They have classes too.

Hi Dwight! We're glad you enjoyed our shop. One thing though...we don't offer classes at Icefire Glassworks, but visitors may watch the resident artists as they create.

Icefire is an amazing gallery where you can see beautiful glass art as well as artisans blowing glass right in the studio. Fun for everyone!
