Jordan Valley Glassworks is a working art studio offering a range of glass items starting with delicate jewelry items, and goes all the way to large wall hangings. In between are free form sculptures and vases, stained and blown glass chandeliers, seasonal stained glass wall hangings and blown ornaments, one-of-a-kind paperweights with outstanding examples of torch work, lawn ornaments, custom stained glass chandeliers in both stained and blown glass; lamp shades; and in the more mundane artifacts are hand mirrors, baskets, and jewel/trinket boxes, and more. We can also take the cremation remains of loved ones or pets and encase them in glass so you can have them forever in a very special place.
You are invited to stop by Jordan Valley Glassworks to watch the artists work blowing glass. The gallery is open seven days a week. Monday – Saturday 10:00 AM – 4:30 PM, Sunday 11:00 AM – 3:30 PM. Items in the gallery are available for sale.
