Because of a Louisville freak snow storm, the gift shop was closed but they were still making the blown glass. The security guard apologized for our inconvenience. He told us the shop is just as interesting as watching the glass blowing. We were able to wander around looking at the exhibits. I sat and watched the glass being blown. It's amazing on how the blower and the shaper work together as though they were one person. One breath to much, or handling a bit to roughly, will end in disaster.

Saw an exhibit online and was surprised to find it offered as part of a package @ 21c Hotel. Very friendly artisans explained how the glass objects were made. We even got to make our own ornaments! Gift shop with lots of things to take home for gifts-or take home for yourself :-)

My husband and I stopped in here while visiting Louisville, not really knowing what to expect. The glass work is exceptional! Every piece is unique and worth taking a second look! Our favorite part was viewing the actual glass blowing and watching a beautiful piece of glass art take shape right in front of us! They make what is probably very hard work and skilled art look so effortless! There were kids in the group with us and they were fascinated as well! This truly is something that the whole family, regardless of age, will enjoy!

We did a staycation in January and took our small children,ages 3 and 5, to flame run and each of us blew ornaments. They were very friendly and patient. It was a great experience and will be in each year to think back on that day hen we put our ornaments on our Christmas tree

Enjoyed a brief visit to the Flame Run Gallery. Generous Brooke White and his team have donated beautiful pieces of art to various causes. They do very creative work at Flame Run. Gift shop on site and parking along the street across from FR, caution about one way streets if you head that way you might drive around the block a time or two. Look for glass flame object on the corner upon the building facade as a mark of its location.
