We met Glenn the owner. He was amazing at his craft. When he was blowing there was another gentlemen explaining what he was doing. We made a purchase and found everything to be made there and very affordable for a work of art.

Decided to see what glass blowing was all about. We picked the perfect place! We got to watch the glass blower make a wine glass and the host was incredibly informative! If you have ever wondered how this art was done, I highly recommend coming here!

It was fun to watch Glen Ziemke, the owner of the glass studio. He has been making glass objects for 40 years and it shows. The showroom is fairly small, but has a nice selection of objects made by the artist. If you're in the Burlington/Stowe area it is worth a visit.

This glass blowing studio offers fine local crafts in a friendly shopping atmosphere; the glassblower will answer questions if he is not busy. The shop will arrange to ship purchases for you. Right off Route 100, the shop is easy to get to with plenty of parking.

We first fell in love with glass blowing on a trip to Maui this past year, so when my boyfriend and I celebrated Valentine's Day weekend in Stowe, we were excited to visit this studio! Luckily the artist himself happened to be working the front area and it was a prior apprentice of his who was actually blowing the glass... More

We got to see him at work which was pretty cool. He is very talented. The shop has many of his pieces for purchase. Simple to extravagant glass options to buy. Worth a quick stop in.

Fantastic to see the glass maker in action when we stopped by. So worth the quick visit and add insight into how it's done -- and mesmerizing for all ages!

Small but very nice. Great glass items to purchase. Very friendly. Easy to find and get too. Stopped and sat and watched two men make a glass fish, very interesting.
