Fabulous glass pieces available at this gallery and studio. You can watch glass being blown or, if you're lucky, glass being poured.

Stopped in to see the final 20 minutes or so of the glass blowing demonstration. Amazed at the intricacy of their handywork.

The owners stayed open for us - she was locking up as we started out of our car. She welcomed us in, let us take our time. Her work is block glass - subtle. Her husband's work is a Venetian-type glass - stunning. All their works, particularly the hanging lamps are real works of art. We missed them glass blowing... More

Both of these artists are amazing! If you GOOGLE them, you will see how nationally renowned they each are. Stop by their studio and retail gallery when you are in Sturgeon Bay, Door County. Friendly and down-to-earth, both are wonderful hosts and teachers!

First of all, the glasswork of the husband and wife team of Jeremy Popelka and Stephanie Trenchard is so beautiful and interesting; however attending one of the free days when an exhibition in their furnace area showing how glass artists work, is the best.

Walking down 3rd Ave in Sturgeon enjoying the shops and summer sun, you could easily miss this fantastic world class glass blowing studio/store. The two owners are incredibly friendly and answer any and all questions, they provide exciting and beautiful demonstrations of their glass blowing techniques on a regular basis so you are likely to be able to see them...

They normally have classes on Friday and Saturday, but we were arriving in Door county late Saturday night. I called ahead to ask if they could possibly do a special class for my mom and me, and Stephanie and Jeremy were so gracious to accommodate us on a Tuesday for the same price as a regular class. Both of them... More

We were warmly received and were able to see glass being blown. My daughter bought some beautiful glass pieces to use in her jewelry work.

Extremely beautiful glass works. Expensive, but you are buying original art works. A few inexpensive jewelry items available, but even those are beautiful. You can often watch the glass blowers at work. The proprietors are very warm and personable. Great spot to visit for locals and tourists alike.
