Absolutely gorgeous place! The showroom was amazing, the studio with live demonstrations was very clean! The outdoor landscaping was very well done and their Solar Ray exhibition was interesting to see. Very helpful employees and overall very impressive. Museum quality!

Owner is super nice. We got there late to a demonstration but he stayed and talked to us about some of his past and present commercial projects. Their work is beautiful! Definitely worth a visit.

We've been to quite a few glass shops over the years and this one was OK. They do a lot of architectural glass art installations and it was interesting to see how they plan them and then blow the necessary glass. It was nice to be able to chat a bit with the artisians....they work 6 days a week and... More

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
