  • It is a unique experience to make your own glass piece. We made arrangements to make an ornament on Saturday and we were able to pick our own colors to customize the piece. The staff is very laid back and our helper was actually not a staff member but a new artist who seemed to have a work/independent project agreement. She was sweet but made mistakes, which allowed us to each make a practice ornament and one to take home. The only hands on part for the customer is to blow into a metal tube. It really has zero skill for the customer, for better or worse. The two ornaments probably took less than 30 minutes. You can not take it home with you (since it takes them time to cool it?) You need to pay for shipping or personally puck it up Tuesday. It is kind of sad they do not provide time to look at it or take a picture of you with the final product. The glass does change color when it cools. The piece is put in a metal cabinet once it is done.
  • Visited this lively treasure, this morning. Yelp was not wrong on this gem. They offer blow your own glass classes & offer a beautiful collection of glass art & items for daily use! The owner was kind & very knowledgeable. We will be returning, with friends & family.
  • Loved making my own Christmas ornaments. It was so much fun! The gallery was beautiful and the place was packed, but the wait time wasn't bad. I loved looking at the gallery with a wide variety of colorful and creative glasswork. The staff was really friendly too!
  • Must see! Scenic drive, close to Little River Canyon sights. We enjoyed blowing our own ornaments! Highly recommend to anyone staying at Desoto State Park or looking for a day trip!
  • Great glass prices and you're able to watch to workers as they blow glass. The drive there is beautiful but they are out in the middle of nowhere.
