  • I have never seen anything like before in my life. The artist creates amazing glass blown pieces right in front of you and explain all the steps. There is bar on the side for visitors and factory also serves as a gallery where you can buy their creations. It was so cool watching it. They offer the viewing free, one can donate if they wish to support their work.
  • Neat place to visit. Watched glass making. Really couldn't afford anything but was neat.
  • Enjoyed watching the process from start to finish. They do beautiful work.
  • Very enjoyable spot to visit. You can enjoy some beer while watching glass blowers make objects of delight!
  • Glass workers converse with those watching and are good at answering questions. Very nimble handling of hot flames and glass and excellent art of glass blowing.
