“Fascinating! Highly recommended”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 23, 2013

Laurie Marie Hagen is the artist who created glassometry studios. She is very personable and very accomplished. A number of her steel and glass sculptures surround and inhabit the studio. She also produces functional art glass including sinks, counters, glasses, lamps and other useful objects. We both enjoyed watching her and the other employees work. The studio is set up with seating in the studio that facilitates getting a good look at how the glass is worked. We especially enjoyed working with one of the employees to create our own piece of glass. Each of us always wanted to know what it was like to work with glass and it was really fun to get a little better idea of what that is like.

“Fascinating place!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 18, 2013

This place is super interesting. If you have money to spend (Starting around $20 and going up even as far as $80) you can make your own glass art from a large selection, customizing it to your liking. From an icicle, to a sphere, to a pear shape, even more complex things like a mug or bowl. If you don't want to spend money, you can still sit in and watch them make things, which is great. The whole process is one of the most interesting art forms I have seen. The people are very friendly and were happy to work with me as I made a spiral icicle piece.

“A great experience for the whole family!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 6, 2012

We decided to stop in on our drive around the Fruit Loop. What a fabulous decision! The gallery has some absolutely gorgeous pieces. The highlight for us is we were able to create our own pieces! They have a menu of items you can create. You get to pick your colors and then you get to help them make it! It was really really cool. The staff was super friendly and fun to work with. My three year old even got to make an icicle ornament. Seeing the whole process was interesting too. This place is definitely going to become a family tradition.

“A Fun Artistic Experience! A Great Place for Gifts too!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2012

Laurel Hagner, the owner and creator of Glassometry Studiosis so talented....visit her website to see examples of her glass blowing and metal sculpture. It's fun to visit and learn about glassblowing and even blow your own piece. Her staff is so friendly and informative you come away with a real knowledge of her art. An attractive gallery and shop with one of a kind artworks.
