  • A really amazing place that brings together the artistry of glass blowing, with the maker elements of fire, skill and materials engineering. They have some truly beautiful art pieces, drinking glasses, pitchers, etc - but best of all you can sit and watch how it is all created. The staff are incredible friendly and patient explaining their craft. It's a bit of a long/difficult drive, but definitely worth it!
  • From ranging furnace, to mosaic covered pathways and benches, this place is a perfect hangout for those who love something different. The road is a bit bumpy though but it's one great experience.
