Are you looking for a unique experience?  In prehistoric times, a natural glass formed by volcanic eruptions, was prized for its hardness by primitive man and was used to make tools and arrowheads. Man-made glass amulets and beads from as far back as 4000 BC have been discovered by archaeologists.  Watch our local glass artist Richard Ryan demonstrate how an ancient art form can now be seen in a glass art studio. Ryan demonstrates how blown glass can be sculpted and carved into glass pieces of art.
