Founded in 1987 in Beacon, New York, Hudson Beach Glass is an internationally recognized glass design and glass studio. Founders Wendy and John Gilvey, Jennifer Smith and Michael Benzer have been hand-casting functional and sculptural glass objects for more than 25 years.

In 2013, Hudson Beach Glass celebrated the 10th anniversary of its retail showroom, gallery and glass blowing demonstration studio, built into a restored 3-story, 19th century firehouse on Main Street.

The Maple Street workshop and Main Street showroom are both located in one of the region’s fastest growing small cities, sought after for its arts community and cultural offerings. The firehouse, convenient to Metro-North and mass transit, also offers glass-blowing classes year-round and hosts curated fine art exhibitions in the gallery.

  • We came with our children to see them blow glass but the one doing it had left for the day. The owner was really sweet and gave us a demonstration on how glass is blown and showed us all the equipment. A real pleasant place!!
