Covid-19 update

Due to the uncertainty of the Corona virus pandemic, we will remain closed as we monitor if the local cases increase or decrease over at least the next several weeks. Due to severe lung issues, Tom is in the high risk category of this virus.

Glass blowing classes can not happen at this time due to the social distancing issues involved with teaching. If you would like to take a class, please call Elaine to put your name on a list, and we will contact you immediately when we are able to resume teaching.

Group demonstrations are also on hold due to social distancing, but as with classes, please call to have your name put on a list.

If you would like to come in to our store in need of a gift, or to pick up an order you have on layaway, please call Elaine at 724-791-2100 to make an appointment.  This is not an inconvenience for us in any way, as we live right next door to the Glass Center.  If you do come in, please wear a mask for your safety as well as ours.

We appreciate your patience and understanding, and look forward to reopening as soon as it is safe to do so.

Personalized Rice Necklaces...
The art of rice writing has been around for 2,000 years.  Using a micro pen, we will write your name on a grain of rice and put it into a necklace style of your choice as seen below. Other choices for your custom necklace include clear or colored oil (red, blue, yellow, green, orange, purple).

Rice necklaces make a perfect gift and can also be worn in memory of a loved one so they're always close to your heart.  Below is a small sampling of some of the necklaces that we offer, we have many more in the store.
