  • Best demonstration ever because it very well narrated. The colors in his glass work were vivid and a nice selection was present. We so enjoyed the presentation and Q&A that we bought a piece from the shop for the memories.
  • This is a very fun shop. They have a spot where you can sit and watch the pieces being made. We were told that they typically blow glass for 7 hours a day when open. Usually with a very small window of down time in between pieces. Very informative with a step by step explanation available while the pieces are being made by the guy working the front of the shop. Also the glass pieces seemed to be reasonably priced.
  • Showroom and shop in the front and a place to watch Ziemke creating glasswork in the back with chairs and benches for a group of 10 to 12 people. Fun to watch! It is possible to commission work like glassware in quantity.
  • This guy is very talented. They have a viewing area to watch him work and the women behind the counter was also the guide. She told us what he was doing each step of the way. They have a room full of glass blown things that he has made for sale.
  • Beautiful pieces for sale with such color! The demonstrations are excellent! It's a must see artisan.
