    An Impressive Glass Art Studio
    We were intrigued by the flyers we saw on Thal Glass and ventured to Laurie Thal's studio. What a treat! Laurie, the glass artist, gave us a very informative tour of her studio and explained her process of creating her amazing glass art. Laurie and her partner, who does the sand blasting, create beautiful pieces. The colors in her glass are stunning and were something we had never seen before. She was most generous with her time, and we bought a beautiful cobalt piece to take home. We recommend that art glass lovers stop by her studio when in Jackson.
    So glad you picked up my card and found Thal Glass Studio! It was my pleasure to show you all the equipment and explain how all the colors are made in the glass. I hope your new cobalt piece goes well with your glass collection. See you again on your next trip to Jackson! My best Laurie

    You might think you missed the turn…
    Laurie & Dan’s glass studio is situated next to their home nestled in a serene wooded setting. Their work is a unique combination of shapes, detailing, and coloration. If you enjoy collecting art glass try not to miss the opportunity to visit their studio. We didn’t, but a prior phone call is a good idea to make sure they will be there. We throughly enjoyed our visit with this welcoming and talented couple.
    Lynn, Thanks so much for visiting our glass studio! It's always so nice to have glass collectors visit and appreciate the quality of our work. I hope you enjoy your new vase & that it looks lovely in your home. Our Best, Laurie & Dan

    Unique glass creations and designs
    Laurie and Dan are masters of creating blown glass and fused glass. Their glass art is unique, beautiful and striking. Sand blasted design adds another dimension to their works of art We bought a beautiful lotus vase to add to our glass collection. A visit to their home workshop is a stop not to be missed in visiting Jackson Hole
    Don, Thanks so much for visiting our glass studio. It's an honor to be included in your private glass collection! We hope you enjoy your special Lotus Vase for my years. Hope to see you again on your next visit to Jackson. Laurie & Dan

    Beautiful items
    I always like to buy something special on vacations. I found the perfect item at Thal Glass Studio. A cobalt blue perfume bottle. Looking forward to adding it to my collection. It’s beautiful. Glad we made the stop.

    A Unique and Incredible Experience
    Having seen some of my collection of glass art a friend brought me to Thal Glass Studio during a recent visit to Jackson Hole. From the moment I walked through the door I knew I had found a glass artist that I would be adding to my collection. Laurie's incredible mastery of art glass shines through in her extraordinary mastery of creating shapes and colors. And what a treat to have her take the time to walk me through her designs and her process. I bought several great pieces, made more exceptional by the experience of meeting and getting to know this amazing artist!

    Glassmaking Field Trip
    I brought my whole class of 4th graders and we had such an amazing time today at our glass ornament workshop! Laurie Thal is a phenomenal artist and teacher. She welcomed all seventeen of us into her studio, which is full of glass artwork, without blinking an eye. Each student took a turn making their own ornament - choosing the colors, blowing the glass, and turning it in the oven. Students were involved in the process from start to finish, and we simply can't wait to see the final results on Monday!
    Catherine, It was a pleasure to teach your students to blow glass ornaments! They listened so well, were patient and polite. What a great group! Thanks for coming & I'll so glad they loved their ornaments. My best Laurie

    Amazing art glass and exceptional service
    The carved and sandblasted bowl made for us is just gorgeous! Because we are familiar with their work, we purchased the piece online knowing that it would be truly exceptional. Laurie even called us later that day and gave us a tour of their studio via Facetime. They could not have been nicer! The bowl arrived at our home (about a thousand miles away from their studio) unscathed, having been packed and shipped in a heavy wooden crate to ensure it's safety. We highly recommend their work.

    Experiencing something new
    Learning from an expert in glass blowing about the history and effort required to mold glass into something from your imagination was great. Being able to have a hands on experience of selecting the colors and turning the glass to the point that you can create something with your own breath was memorable to say the least. Having the Christmas ornament is a fun reminder of our time learning with Laurie.

Blowing our own glass ornaments has become a tradition for our dear friends and family here in Jackson Hole. Laurie makes the most amazing art glass pieces, from small shot glasses and perfume bottles with stoppers to tall vases and intricately designed bowls which are sand blasted with designs and cut edges to windows and huge modern installations with her partner, Dan. She talks about the process and is happy to explain all about glass blowing. Every single year we return and always exclaim about how amazing it is to be making our own ornaments while the snow falls creating a little snow globe scene while we work at the base of the Tetons!

We enjoyed our visit to Thal Glass Studio. Laurie and Dan's glass was awesome to see in person. The studio itself was fascinating. Laurie and Dan both spent time with us, showing us their glass making equipment, demonstrating their process, and thoughtfully answering our questions. The beautiful glasses we purchased remind us of a most enjoyable visit...and we'll be back!

Laurie & Dan are master artists. You might think of glass-making as craft, but here is an example of craftsmanship achieving a higher form of expression and beauty. The craftsmanship is also interesting, but the outcome achieved here is evocative.

Thal Glass has beautiful, unique, colorful, glass bowls and vases and fused wall art. I have collected glass for many years since my first trip to Venice and Murano 50 years ago and collect glass art from all over the world. My new Thal Glass pieces rival anything I own! You must visit their website or visit their studio in Jackson Hole Wyoming...skiing is not my only reason to visit Jackson anymore!

With just a phone call we were welcomed to their studio. Dan openly received us and was generous with his time to describe in detail what it takes to create glass art from start to finish with all it's intricacies. Dan also showed their personal collection. Dan gave easily understood directions to view a large installment up the road. My sister and I will make a point to connect again with Laurie and Danial again when we drive up from SLC. This was a high point for me while visiting galleries in Jackson.

What a fun, unique activity! We got to blow our own glass ornaments and learn the process of glass blowing. Laurie and Dan's glass pieces are incredibly beautiful works of art! It would be worth a trip to the studio just to see their work. And we love the hand blown glasses we got. They are durable, and remind us of our trip there every time we use them.
