Rosetree Blown Glass Studio and Gallery specializes in the creation of blown art glass in the Venetian style of furnace work. We have one of the largest contemporary art glass galleries in the South. 99% of the work in our gallery is created in our in-house studio. You can watch masters of the glassblowing art manipulate molten glass using two-thousand year old methods. We are just a short 8 block walk from the Algiers/Canal Street Ferry terminal through a bucolic neighborhood. Stroll the quiet streets of the second-oldest neighborhood in New Orleans. See our gorgeous houses and churches and stop for an adult beverage at one of our top-rated bar rooms. The Ferry does not take passenger cars anymore, although some GPSes will try and take you on it. If you want to drive to the studio, please call for directions.The charge for pedestrians on the Ferry is $2 each way. We are open M-F 10:00-4:00 with a lunch break 12:30-1:30. Please call for Saturday hours.

We thoroughly enjoyed the "Blow Your Own" experience the Monday before Thanksgiving. After being warmly greeted at the door, Mark took us into the glass-making area and introduced us to Solange, our instructor. She explained the process, describing what we would do by ourselves, and how she would take care of the most complicated parts, with our help. We picked... More

I attended a bridal shower at the studio where the guests each made a blown glass Ornament for the couples first Christmas tree. The party had the studio to itself. It was great fun.

I admit I'm biased because I also work glass but this place is awesome! If you're going to be in New Orleans you've gotta make time to visit this spot. It's an old movie theatre nestled in a quiet neighborhood in Algiers. Mark and his team turn out amazing work and the vibe is so friendly. I had the pleasure... More

The artist is so talented and has turned an old movie theater into his studio. Watch him blow glass creations and marvel at the finished product. Leave with one of the best souvenirs in New Orleans, the Mardi Gras pumpkin.

This place is amazing. The glass is all blown by hand and it is incredible to see. We got to watch a short video of the glass blowing and then got a chance to look around. Wow such gorgeous stuff. There is even a window so you can watch the glass blower in action. A totally fascinating place and every... More

We took the Algiers Ferry from the French Quarter to visit Rosetree Glass. It is just a few blocks down quaint streets to the studio/gallery. We had signed up for one of their "blow your own" glassblowing events. Mark Rosenbaum (the artist) must be one of the most patient men around! Yes, he ended up helping us create a beautiful... More

Staying in Algiers

Neighbourhood Profile
Algiers
Sitting pretty across the Mississippi River from the rambunctious French Quarter, the Crescent City’s second oldest neighborhood is as historic and as scenic as any – just a lot less showy about it. With its numerous 19th and early 20th century homes and plentiful parks and riverside green space for cycling and walking, subdued and low key Algiers yields the best views of New Orleans and offers a quiet haven from the hustle and bustle in other parts of town. Most of the area’s activity, for visitors anyway, takes place at Algiers Point where the famous Canal Street / Algiers Ferry has been the main attraction since 1827 and is still giving folks one of the best rides in town at very affordable rates. Restaurants, bars and music venues here all but guarantee the utmost of authentic experiences sans any hype or high prices.
