This was our 3rd trip to the glassblowing shop. Last April the owner made a turtle for my grandson, purple and teal, this trip we requested another one just like the first, no problem. I'm a flip flop nut and had several made of different colors for necklaces. The buisness is family run with everyone so friendly. This shop is worth a visit for the unusual souvinier.

My family visited the studio on a whim after being stuck in some George Town traffic. We approached the studio slowly enough for us all to decide that we wanted to go in and have a look around. The people there were very friendly and didn't follow you around and pester you to buy things like they do in some of the shops in George Town. If you visit at the right time, you may even get to see them blowing a glass object that will later be put in the gift shop.

The store has all sorts of neat things: suncatchers, ornaments, jewelery, figurines, bowls... they even had pretty glass stingray's and turtles that remind you of the Cayman's. The prices seemed pretty fair, and when you make a purchase, they package it up carefully so you can get it home safely.

Island Glassblowing Studio is a great place to visit, with lots of unique goodies. I wasn't able to leave without getting a lovely purple starfish that now hangs in my window!

If you go to Grand Cayman, you must visit the Island Glassblowing Studio. The Zawistowski family is fun to visit with and very talented. The husband does amazing work, the son does very detailed and specialized pieces and the wife is a joy to talk to. We almost didn't make it to this place, but the day before we left we finally made the trip and we spent two hours in the studio. If you have any appreciation for art then you will be amazed at the creativity and craftmanship. I highly recommend going there and appreciating the years and years of hard work they have put in to developing their craft.
