The glass on display is quite fantastic, and not too pricy compared to Chihuly or other named artists! They were doing a glassblowing demonstration for just two people, so they are very accommodating!

There are some beautiful glass pieces here. Yes, they are expensive, but they also have reasonably priced small pieces. We got a beautiful flower for $20. You can come and go to the work area as you like. We watched the demo for about 30...More

Don't miss this place! You can watch the glassblowers in action. Their work is beautiful. It is not cheap but these are all one-of-a-kind pieces. We bought two beautiful hanging glass balls (think ornaments but year-round) and they were very reasonable. Their lamps are unbelievable!

Having gone to The Wimberley Glass Works is quite a unique experience watching a professional glass blower perform their work and seeing the beautiful end product. Also on site is a show room of pieces that they have made for business accounts.

Unique and beautiful glass work. We went for an outdoor light and while pricey they use Hubbardton Forge for the metal light which has lovely finishes and we happened to have a few of their pieces so we could select from known finishes.

We went to watch the glass blowing, and just happened to arrive at the same time as a group who had arranged a "tour". The presenter went into detail about how the piece of art (a pitcher) was made; why each step was performed; the...More
