Beautiful glass studio; worth the stop!
May 2021
This is a small shop with beautiful pieces created by Glenn Ziemke. I felt no pressure to buy anything - but couldn't resist. The prices are very reasonable. Well worth the stop!

Beautiful studio where the owner doesn't pressure you
Mar 2020
This was a true find while we were in town. The owner's studio is beautiful, with all sorts of different pieces to buy. The best treat is being able to see him work in the back, through a large glass window. We were poking around and he told us he was going to go back and do some work, and invited us to sit down and watch for a bit. He explained what he was going to do and then came back out to answer questions afterwards. It's a very cool place to stop in and take a look around.

Great Glass Blowing Demonstration
Oct 2020
We loved the glass blowing demonstration & it shows their talent. A small shop but beautiful pieces. Colorful & well done. A little bit pricey but maybe I'm out of touch on the prices.

Beautiful glass studio
Oct 2020 • Couples
The store and studio were filled with beautifully colorful pieces, we bought a sun catcher and white pumpkin. The craftsman performed a 15min exhibition making a drinking glass, very entertaining. Great stop along the way!

Nice Small Outfit
Oct 2019 • Friends
They may be small in size but they are wonderful in explaining that art of glass blowing. You can watch them as they craft different objects - it’s magical to see what can be shaped & made and how color can be added. Everyone was very friendly. Definitely worth a stop.

A hidden gem
Oct 2019 • Couples
It is a small outfit. You can watch him blowing the glass. And they have so much in the studio . I got a beautiful little pitcher. A must see when in Waterbury Vermont

Glass blowing demonstration
Sep 2019 • Couples
Sat in on a glass blowing demonstration, which was fascinating. Store selection is limited. I thoroughly enjoyed the demonstration but sadly didn't find a piece to take home.

Beautiful pieces
Aug 2019 • Couples
We stopped by during a recent visit. Got there at the end of the making of a glass pitcher. Took a look around and purchased a nice vase. Then went back to observing the artist while he made a dreamcatcher. It was amazing to see the process!

Beautiful contemporary glass decor
Jun 2019 • Couples
Really gorgeous contemporary glass vases, centerpieces and sculptures - a great addition to any modern style home. I wish I needed more decor for my house - I would have bought the pieces I loved.

There was a glass blowing demo when we visited and my husband enjoyed it while I was browsing in the store.

The glass is expensive but it is hand made, original, stylish, so it is worth every penny of it.

Driving past & made a quick stop
Jun 2019 • Couples
Lovely glass rather expensive. Not an active demonstration when we stopped - apparently on certain days of the week. Spent maybe a half hour browsing.. no buying.
