We had stopped in New Haven three weeks earlier to see the glass studio and the distillery. The studio was closed for a wedding. We mentioned that and one of the guys explained that he was a "Dudist" priest. That was the first of many interesting stories we heard in between explanations of what the two artists were doing. Both... 更多
Stopped in at Astral Glass and enjoyed visiting with the local artists. Bought some lovely tumblers. We haven't seen many art galleries in this region, but this one had a nice variety of paintings, jewelry, and silk scarves as well as glass.
While in this neat river town, I decided to browse through the Astral Glass Studio. I have to give them high marks for being creative. They have glass objects there, like shotglasses shaped like fish and other unique containers that I've never seen elsewhere. All of the objects are blown and shaped in house. If in New Haven, please stop... 更多
Really had a great time talking to the staff. They are very friendly and really willing to describe the process. They have a seating area to sit and watch them make their different items. Really nice stemless wine glass's. Will be coming back again sometime.
We didn't get to see the artisan at work...the glass wasn't hot enough yet...but he was great to talk to. There are two gallery cats that we enjoyed as much as the beautiful art glass work we were surrounded by...but then, we are cat lovers!
We enjoyed looking at the beautiful blown glass items, & met one of the artisans. No one was blowing glass at the time of our visit but we did speak to one of the artisans. Lots of beautiful pieces to choose from for purchase; shot glasses, drinking glasses, earrings, etc. We enjoyed checking it out.
A wonderful studio and gallery in the heart of little New Haven. Wonderful glasswork to look at and purchase of course. They have a great seating area to watch glass blowing first hand. Might want to call first and check times if that is what you mainly want to see. They offer handmade items ranging from jewelry to art gallery... 更多
Very talented and crafty people doing beautiful things with glass. We bought a rambler and now i wished we would of bought more. Next time were down that way again, we will be back. Would like to see a demonstration, unfortunately they weren't in to do one for us.
This place is definitely worth a visit, even if your destination is not New Haven! Fun shop, lots of interesting jewelry and artwork. But the best is if they happen to be in the middle of making a blown glass creation. We were lucky enough to see this while we were there; the owner was making a beautiful glass vase... 更多
