  • Awesome open air style studio. Just happened by and two artisans were working on a piece. They talked through the process and were happy to answer questions. Beautiful and unique pieces and you can even get beer if you're so inclined. Awesome happenstance.
  • It was awesome to see the work of their artists. If we lived down here, my girlfriend and I would have bought some small things. Awesome glassblowing demonstration as well!
  • We drove 1 hour and 49 minutes, nearly 80 miles to Asheville from Virginia, specifically and singularly to see this place and I didn't forsee the possibility of being let down as dramatically as we were. We felt unwelcome and disheartened after such a long trip to see this place. We greeted the staff behind the desk and were ushered with an open invitation to "look around," after such we sat in silence and I am still just as uneducated on the art of glass blowing as I was when I left Virginia. This was our very first opportunity to witness the age old trade and while it was very nice to witness, that was all that was offered. The atmosphere was cold and strikingly uninviting.
  • Beautiful glassware -will return to watch glass blowing (not done on Tuesday)
  • Very cool spot. Very Asheville...some art, architecture and beer.
