Simon Pearce

I've always had a fondness for blown glass. So delicate, yet so intricate and beautiful.
Simon Pearce is a famous glassmaker known for amazing works of art and when I discovered the flagship factory and store was right by the Quechee Gorge I jumped at the chance to check out the shop.
The showroom is filled with such a variety of amazing pieces. Vases, platters, trinkets, cups, glasses, frames, you name it it's there. Going at the holidays made for an even more festive experience. A showroom that also serves as a museum!
The sights aren't simply inside, either! The shop sits on the river, and is powered by the waterfall! Made for a beautiful view inside and out.

Beautiful!!! I find glass work of all kinds to be so fascinating. There is a glass factory in Kokomo {Where Ryan works} that allows tours and perhaps now that I have the freedom in my schedule to do so, I can go see what it's all about!

One of my coworkers from the college makes jewelry and her dad is a glassblower, so my wedding necklace was a piece they had made. I just love it! I love how every piece is completely unique.

I remember as a kid watching a guy blow glass. It was fascinating to see a blob of hot glass turn into a work of art.

The building alone makes me swoon. I love places like that. For my first wedding my mother bought me a blown glass cake topper - there's a little place just outside of Knott's Berry Farm that has the most amazing pieces in there. When it got broken a year later- they were able to fix it for free. Not bad. It's amazing what they can do.

So beautiful and fascinating. There is a glass museum in Tacoma and we loved exploring and watching them work...

Oh my goodness! How lucky are you to have visited such a fantastic place! You are certainly right, the view is pretty awesome outside too! It looks cold.

I too enjoy blown glass. We went last winter to a blown glass demonstration and it was wonderful. And of course the shop was great too. I took many photographs and have only shared a few so far.

There are some really lovely pieces shown here! I adore the top images of the corked bottles. So gorgeous!

I love it when artists go beyond their art and it spills over into daily life, like the location of his house!

Beautiful glass work. I'd need to be careful not to bump & break anything. Gorgeous waterfall outside as well.
