A real treat. Awhile strolling through the store you are invited to go into the glass room and watch glass being blown in a hot room. The glass experts explain the process to you and will take questions from the audience. A real interesting experience.

Very interesting and beautiful. We were able to see the talented workers in action. The glass is beautiful. Many of the works were beyond our price range but, we did purchase some beautiful pieces.

As the title of my review states, the glass artwork was absolutely beautiful. It seemed a little pricey until I watched the glass making demonstration and saw a bit of what it takes to make one of their stunning art pieces. What the artists are doing is a labor of love of at the art. The artists we talked to... More

We have passed by this place a few times and have always said that we need to stop by. Was really glad we did this time. Amazing works and everyone was friendly. The demo was very interesting and both the people working the glass were very informative. Very detailed work and it is such an intriguing process. Lots of beautiful... More

This was not the most adventurous stop on our trip to San Antonio from Austin, but it was air conditioned, they were serving sangria and the craft works were some of the most beautiful creations I've seen. Our teenagers got bored so this was a quick stop but the staff were very welcoming and chatted like we were family. The... More

My daughter and I were out for a short drive between San Marcos and Wimberley and decided to stop in at the glass works. Neither one of us had been there and it was a most amazing surprise. I had expected to see a few vases and glasses, etc, but nothing like the beauty we beheld as we walked in.... More

I can't think of too many places where you can walk in and watch artists making creations in glass. This place is a combination retail store and studio. The glass objects in the store are beautiful and quite pricey (beware of letting your energetic kids hang out in the store area). The studio area has a small stadium seating area,... More

We were privileged to receive a glass blowing demonstration from the owner. It is an amazing process to watch. The showroom displayed many beautiful items; from works of art to functional pieces. At first, the prices may seem a little high. But, after you watch a demonstration of the process, you understand the time, effort and care that goes into... More
