Glass Blowing School and Gift Shop
... where glass blowing comes alive!

Hello friends and followers. It is with a heavy heart that we announce that we will be closing our doors permanently.  Our last day of operation will be July 31st, 2024.  Our decision is based on rising costs of utilities, insurance, gasses, etc.  Inflation has affected us all, and we have seen a massive drop in visitors as of late.  For these reasons, it is unsustainable to continue to keep our doors open.  We will really miss the people that have become a part of our lives, as well as the educational community service that we have provided at no charge since day one of our operation.

If anybody has any gift certificates, we urge you to use them before our close date, as well as picking up any layaway's or orders that you have waiting. If you've ever wanted to take a glass working class with us, or just stop in and see what we're all about, this is your last chance.

If anybody would like to help us moving forward into the unknown, we still have inventory available for purchase, and we also have a donation can at my workbench.  Donations will go towards setting up a work space at our home where we can teach glass classes.  You can also support us via PayPal (, or contributions can be mailed to:

Thank you all for the decades of support that you have given us, and we will miss having you as a part of our lives.
Sincerely, and with much gratitude,
Tom and Elaine Doner
