We caught Jeremey Popelka & Stephanie Trenchard's Saturday demonstration by chance & were so glad we did! Their commentary & demonstration of blowing a stemmed wine glass was like watching a hot ballet :) They totally nail the smart marketing tool of showing how something is made & educating their visitors on the nuance & complexity of how they create...

One of the top glass artists in the nation, and very accessible to visitors who can see the equipment and often catch him in the process of creating the art. One of a kind art experience.

We had a nice chat with Stephanie Trenchard. Both she and Popelka are long term glass artists. Most of the glass is pricey (appropriately so), but they have some lower price items, too. Chance to see what glass artistry is all about.

Lucky enough to stop in shop when Mr. Popelka was there....he even showed us his studio and did a short glass-blowing demonstration for us. Very pleasant experience and came out of there with a beautiful vase!! Wonderful souvenir of week-long visit to Door County!

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.
