With an active studio life, Fireweed Glass Studio is open from 11-4pm daily, including Sundays and holidays. Nestled in a corner of the Elk Run Industrial Park, we have a small store front gallery and visitors are encouraged to drop in and take a peek at work for sale. There is often an artist blowing glass, so your chances to see them in action are good. Feel free to drop in anytime! We are open every day through December 24 11am-4pm or appointment.

We drove out to the studio on a rainy day and it was well worth the "effort". If you like talking to the real artists behind the work, this is it. Lots of great works and styles to choose from.
