Stumbled on this little place to find reasonably priced original art in a variety of mediums. Check out the unusual glass jewelry and the artists in this place!

I had no experience in dichroic glass, but I was in Port Aransas for a week, so I signed up for the jewelry making class. It was amazing! Sherie is a lovely hostess and teacher, with lots of patience and tons of talent. I got to make 4 pendants and 1 pair of earrings, and I love wearing them all. Sheri lets you choose what style and colors you want to use for your jewelry. You do need to plan your class so you can come back a couple of days later to pick up your jewelry, as she will put it in the kiln and cool it after you leave your class. The class is a good value because of the jewelry you get to take home. I love going to the beach every day on my vacation, but it was so nice to spend one afternoon in Sheri's art studio for a change. I highly recommend this class!

Sheri is a talented glass artist! Her work is lovely. She has a great selection of glass art as well as selections of prints by Betsy Bowen.

We met the owner of the art glass studio at an art fair, where we bought one of her peices. On another trip to Port A, we stopped at the shop and were amazed at all the glass. We learned that she has classes, which we'll arrange to take on our next visit. Very interesting person and we learned alot already!.

I love this place, my husband and I have a few of Sheri's pieces and I just took a class on making jewelry. She is so helpful, we learned about the glass and it's properties, we didn't just show up and slap things together. We were able to make beautiful pieces and thoroughly enjoyed the class. I would highly recommend this for a mother/daughter afternoon or spending time with the girls. She also has classes for garden stakes and making small dishes which might interest the men too!

Highly recommend stopping in to meet Sheri at her studio and scheduling a class if you can! Wandering by we stopped in and and saw her artwork. We were all mesmerized as she showed the kilns, explained the process of making her pieces and showing the variety of glasswork she creates. Then we inquired about her classes. We came back the next day for a private class customized to our group -kids and moms 10 years old and up. We loved the way Sheri tailored the class and the instruction to meet each persons individual needs. Sheri was so kind to the kids and patient teaching us all how to use all of her tools and materials. In the end, we had a fabulous class, learned so much, created individual masterpieces and had a GREAT time. Highly recommend scheduling a class if you have the opportunity. So glad we were out exploring and stopped in for a visit. Thank you Sheri for such a fantastic experience for all of us!

The shop owner gave us a tour of her shop and showed us how she melts the colored glass. She said she sometimes gives a class for customers. My husband was impressed. We found the shop the last full day we were in Port Aransas or he would have checked in to taking a class. I bought a really nice glass pendent.

Small shop and it is not open everyday. The glass is pretty, but the variety is lacking. Nice to view and taking a class would probably be fun.

This studio and gallery is filled with lots of pieces at pretty reasonable prices. It appeared that classes were also offered.
