Please pre-purchase your tickets here .  

A visit to the Morean Glass Studio is an opportunity to get behind the scenes and observe resident glass artists creating unique works of art.

From gathering the molten glass from the furnace, to working it on the pontil pipe and glory hole, to its final cool down process in the annealing kiln, you will have a new appreciation for this art form that is centuries old. View the gaffer blowing glass, while the assistant narrates in detail the science behind glass, the artistic vision guiding the process and all of the steps involved as the work is being produced. All of the pieces created are for sale in the Glass Studio Store conveniently located adjacent to the glass studio. Inside you will find a wide variety of art glass including: jewelry, bowls, vases, ornaments and more. Ticket price is not required to visit the retail store.
