  • I have been coming here for years. Sparky is not only a gifted glass blower but a charming and entertaining person. He makes your day with his humor and welcoming spirit.  more »
  • They had lots of nice things, we picked up a few. The man that runs it is about the friendliest person you could ever meet. I think they even have blow your own glass stuff.  more »
  • Sparky does a fantastic job with his classes. We had three of us take the class where you make a glass bear and two blown ornaments. He explains why you heat the glass a certain way and is standing by...  more »

  • Sparky was entertaining and helpful. We really enjoyed learning how to make our own bears and to blow ornaments. Also while we were there another customer came in. She had him blow her husband's ashes into a glass piece and he made her an additional glass heart that contained his ashes and I thought that was really sweet and thoughtful!
  • We stopped here on our way home from a weekend getaway, and spent a good amount of time just looking at everything and chatting with the owner. I ended up purchasing 4 ornaments, and plan to go back for more. The amount of detail he puts into his work is incredible!
  • Beautiful works. Priced well. We only got a small charm, but would have loved to get more. They have a variety of tabletop, mounted, and wearable peices.
  • Amazing guy Sparky. Truly what southern folks are all about. Acknowledge you when you walk in the door. Talked about his life, how he got into glass blowing. Made an ornament right in front of us explained the process. Had an extra pair of glasses so we could see what he sees. Took extra care in wrapping our ornament and oil lamp.
  • I had an excellent time doing the glass blowing class. A wonderful husband and wife team that are the epitome of southern hospitality....thanks for the memories!!!!
