This was our first time at the Mark Payton Glass Center. Wow! Great, personal experience. Highly recommend this place. Mark helped my wife make a glass pendent. Please check this place out. Kids would have a blast too.

Always cool to see glass blowing and I appreciate the artistry. But the place doing the blowing was just making glass zucchini so that was boring. The pieces are very expensive so there was nothing I would buy.

We enjoyed our time here. It was a different date idea. It should definitely be a place to visit. Everyone was cool and quite helpful.

We visited on a Saturday afternoon and it wasn't very crowded. The studio was smaller than I thought, but they had many beautiful pieces for sale. We chose to make our own coasters. It was $115 for four of them. We learned how to cut...More

We enjoyed it, but we had seen glass blowing before. We paid for the tour which seemed like a waste as you just get a piece of paper and not any direction. The upstairs portion was interesting and we actually got something out of watching...More

We did the self-guided tour here. It was a little difficult to navigate and get the full information. Then we met Mr. Payton who explained so many good things to us and demonstrated the glass techniques. We did the glass projects at the end of...More
