“Wonderful experience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 22, 2012

We spent an afternoon last weekend watching Nathan Wilson work his magic with the liquid glass. An absolute joy to behold. I now have a deeper appreciation for hand-made glass items. I was so impressed, We went back to Tesuque a couple of days later to buy a beautiful bowl which was made that day, that I will treasure forever. Thanks, Nathan!

“Glass Treasures in Tesuque”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 27, 2007

Tesuque Glassworks is a wonderful experience when in the Santa Fe/Tesuque area. Beautiful glass fantasies for sale and the experience of watching the dance of one of the artists when blowing glass is amazing. Whenever we are in the area we stop in to see the latest creations. A MUST SEE.

“A Unique and Wonderful Afternoon”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 24, 2007

We thought our visit would be brief...look at the ready made glass items, watch a blower at work and be off to other adventure. But, that was certainly NOT the case. We watched Terry blow a beautiful vase from start to finish! We actually took photos for over an hour of the process and progress he made. Our video clips were a great addition to our stills. We had a wonderful afternoon and saw a fine craftsman at work in a medium that was so unique to us. This was indeed a highlight of our visit to Santa Fe. This is a MUST SEE in our book!

“An experience to treasure”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 23, 2006

My grandchildren (ages 12 and 14) and I were in the Santa Fe region for spring break. It was a cold day and we didn't know where to go. Our hotel suggested a trip out to see the glassworks. I am thrilled that we went there! We got to see Charlie Miner as he took some colors, started the glass blowing process, did his magic, worked the glass in and out of the glory hole and ended up creating a beautiful work of art which I now own! It is definitely one of the high-lights of our trip! The other thing about this side trip is that it is located right next door to the Shidoni sculpture garden and is on a beautiful drive not far from the heart of Santa Fe. It was easy to locate and a very enjoyable experience.
