“Small colorful glass studio”

Kite Design Studios

Reviewed 6 June 2017 via mobile

This little gem of a place is small, but you can observe the blowing or the making of the glass items. All are very colorful from vases to paperweights. What caught my eye was a colorful plate and the prices are very reasonable. Worth a visit for contemporary glass works.

We happened to be walking around Waterford in the morning and stumbled upon this shop. We are so glad we did - there are so many beautiful hand made glass pieces. We ended buying worry stones, an ornament, and candy canes which we were told would be featured on QVC in July. I liked that you can actually see the craftsman make the glass right in front of you. They were pleasant and their hard work is evident in their amazing collections.

As you may have heard, Waterford Crystal is outsourcing much of its crystal production to Slovenia and China. Many of the former craftspeople from that plant are striking out on their own to continue to make and sell crystal. This place features more abstract and "artsy" glass than the traditional hand-cut vases, etc. Prices range from inexpensive for a Christmas ornament to expensive for a large platter. Both, as well as everything in between, are unique pieces of art, and are very exciting. This is a small studio connected to the area where they do the glass blowing. It is a must-see if you like artistic glass.

I was so looking forward to visiting this business, but unfortunately we were in Waterford for only one day which happened to be on a public holiday Monday so they were closed - so disappointed :(
