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)
