We are celebrating 13 years in business!If you haven’t been to one of our launch parties, this evening is for you. Select your pick of the patch before they go to the market. Jeremie will unveil her signature 2022 series this evening.

There will be in-house discounts and all purchases will earn 13% in cash bucks.

What are Cash Bucks? This program provides discounts and is our way of thanking our patrons. A few times a year we offer 13% of your purchase in Cash Bucks to be redeemed when you shop in the future.

At the launch party participate in fun giveaways and be sure to cast your vote for this year’s People’s Choice. One lucky winner will be selected to win a free pumpkin.

a note on our colors

We hope you are enjoying shopping on our website. We strive to provide the best image of what we are offering for you. Please note sometimes the colors in our products may look a little different in natural light. Use this color guide to see the exact colors placed in front of a white background.

All of the glass has been hand-blown or sculpted — no machine helps us make our product but our seasoned hands and our love for the art.

Cheese Platter

Blow a huge bubble & spin it into a platter! Our instructors will guide you to roll into color, heat the glass and use a variety of the glass blowers’ tools. Then, using gravity & centripetal force, spin the glass until it opens into a platter (10-12” wide)
