What an amazing place! We stopped in just in time to watch the glass blowing demonstration. The owner, Tim De Jong who was doing the demonstration was very informative and interesting with a very dry sense of humor. Kind of reminded my of Monty Python! It was absolutely incredible to watch him start out with a small lump of glass,... More

Stopped in while staying in the Canyon Lake area. The pieces in the showroom were amazing. These people are true artisans. There is a seating gallery at the back where they blow the glass. We sat for an hour watching 4 people making chandelier globes. They took the time to come and show us and explain what they were doing... More

Ultimately, the best display of blown glass we've ever seen. It was exquisite. Watching the demonstration in the Hot Shop was an incredible experience!

We toured here on a visit to San Marcos. We have an interest in glassworks so we decided to go to their facility on a Sunday. It turned out it was the free day in which their artists could do whatever they want d. Cool. We stayed in their amphitheater for around an hour watching one of their staff blow... More

If you happen to be going to Wimberley, maybe for their monthly market days, then plan some extra time to stop here. The glass works they have are so beautiful. And it would also be worth your while to watch and see how they make them. It is something for all ages to see

These local artisans do beautiful work. It's definitely worth a stop if you are headed in or out of Wimberly. If you are lucky, you'll be there as they are doing a glass blowing demonstration. During the summer it's hotter than ...., but really interesting!

It is spell binding to see simple sand turned into beautiful and functional elements of our society. Watch them work, buy what you wish and order custom glass products if you wish. Easy parking. Friendly staff anxious to show you what you can do with glass.

I haven't been to a glass-blowing factory since the Murano factory in Italy, but this demonstration was very informative and interesting. The showroom is large and the products are varied, so don't miss it! And take a few minutes to sit outside in the shade an appreciate the outside artwork.
