My boyfriend and I signed up at our B&B to take a glass blowing class with David. He was a super great guy and taught us about and included us in every step of the process. We came home with two beautiful pieces that I will cherish as keepsakes for many years to come.

We were in Maine for a week and this was one of the top 3 things we did which says a lot given all the great activities and restaurants in the area. We will definitely visit David again to go on another creative journey if we are in the area.

Thanks David!

Thanks so much, Yvonne. Really glad you both had such a good time. And I am very flattered that I came in the top 3 of your Maine Events. Impressive. Well, I love showing people the joy of glass, and I am glad you came and had a chance to experience it.
Have a great summer.

I was recently at this lovely glass studio for a weekend with friends. We did a private lesson with David. Not only was he super responsive and easy to get in touch with, but we had an amazing time blowing our vases!! Absolutely a great experience and if you are in the area longer than one day you can pick it up the next day and go home with an awesome memory!! Thanks David!

My daughter and I took a glassblowing class with David and totally fell in love!! What a fantastic time we had learning this art. We both made different style vases and were able to choose from a variety of colors. Can't tell you how many compliments I've received on my beautiful purple and white speckled creation. It's a not-to-be-missed activity in Central Maine!!

We went on a rainy day at suggestion of the Inn at Sunrise Point, where many of David's works are on display and for sale so we had a good idea of the artistry we would see ahead of time. However, nothing beats the experience of meeting David and watching him work. His Venetian style of glass blowing is traditional yet he makes it his own style. David gave very thorough explanations of each step in the process and we ended up buying the vase he made while we watched. Spectacular cobalt blue with purple. He even delivered it the next day to us since it has to sit overnight in the kiln. Thoroughly enjoyed meeting David and sharing in the experience. Our only regret - next time we will schedule ahead to do the hands on learning with David. Don't miss the visit!!

If a hands on experience in glass blowing is not on your list of things to do, you are missing out on a wonderful intimacy with creating something that is truly your own. David is a perfect teacher imparting his knowledge and wisdom about his art. You can clearly see his love of his art in his beautiful glass pieces as well as in his excitement in talking about this wonderful art form. You should not miss out on this adventure.

Hi Linda, thank you for the great endorsement. I truly love teaching glass to new people, so I'm glad that came through to you. You made a beautiful vase.
Hope you come back so we can make some more!
