Stopped in while visiting the area and was able to watch a piece being made. The cashier provided a running commentary on what was happening and also answered questions. Lovely little shop with interesting pieces on display. Pleasant way to spend some time.

What an incredible skill. We had the opportunity to watch as the owner made a glass pumpkin. It took more work than I realized! Definitely worth purchasing a piece here.

My children (ages 6 and 3) sat mesmerized for about 45 minutes watching Glenn make a bowl and a glass. The array of finished products for sale is stunning. Well worth the trip!
