Sunspots came highly recommended and is fun to browse through to find unique pieces of original art. It's amazing to see how the artists work with the beautifully colored glass.

Had been wanting to come over the Sunspots for a while. So glad we finally made the trip. Beautiful, beautiful glass work with an open studio where you can sit and observe the glass being blown or even participate if you so choose.

You should visit this business. The people who make this are artists. You can blow glass but it seems there is just a type of shape you can make.

This was one of the best surprises of this day trip. Not only do the glass blowers demonstrate the art but take time to interact with the guest. Watching base glass turn into beautiful creations as you watch was great. Only thing the studio might...More

This place has some really well made blown glass objects, mostly from the workshop (which you can visit and where you can get a demonstration of the art) that is part of this location. They provide excellent packing AND gift wrapping for all your purchases...More
