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!

The glass shop is a great spot to browse or buy those gifts that you have to bring home. It is full of pretty and moderately priced items that are easy to get home intact.

The owner will tell you how it is all done. Its pretty interesting and cool. Don't miss this for shopping and presents.

When I go to a beach town, I like to find the studios of working artists, so that I can bring home with me work inspired by that area. Port A Glass Studio and Art Gallery is a working studio where you can watch pieces of art work being created, and receive glass fusion instruction yourself! Sheri Hargrove, owner and glass artist, shared with us her passion for her art. She gave us a tour of her studio, explained the fused glass creation process, showed us student fused glass pieces in a kiln and larger pieces in process in the big kiln. Sheri told us a story about a boy whose parents brought him to take a glass class, which he wasn't thrilled about. After taking the class, the father called her later to let her know how much he loved it, and couldn't wait to see is finished piece come out of the kiln. Sheri also showed us the process of creating Japanese style wood cut prints, another art form represented in the gallery. If you love hand made glass art and have always wanted to know how it is made, this is the place for you!

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!

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 really liked my visit to Port A Glass last week. Very affordable but unique glass jewelry and decorative pieces. If you do not want a run of the mill souvenir or gift this is the place to go!
