Where is pricing information?

Pricing for lessons is in the Lessons Page. Pricing is by the piece.

Pricing for artwork is in the Online Gallery Page. Pieces with prices listed are for sale in the online gallery. Call for pricing of other items.

Do you stock all the designs?

All artwork is one of a kind, and while we usually have something available in every series, availability of artwork varies.  If it is for sale in the Online Gallery, we have it available for you.  Please call if there are any questions about a specific piece. 

What times & days are your classes?

Classes are by appointment, 9-5, seven days per week.

When can I pick up my piece?

Lesson pieces have to cool down slowly overnight.  They are usually ready by 3 pm the following day. 

Are there advanced levels for glassblowing?

We are continually developing new lesson pieces, so you can come back again and again and still have fresh, fun pieces to make.

Can I make a Wave, Whale Tail, Turtle, or Whale?

Our lessons set you up for success, and as such, we do not offer these items as lesson pieces. Any of these, plus other items for sale in the gallery require years of dedication and professional experience to be able to make. The pieces we offer are ones we know that we can pull off every time with first-time beginners. If you want a very island-themed sculpture, the Fish Sculpture is a great option.

How long do the lessons take?

We book a half hour per piece, up to three pieces. Since orientation happens all at the same time, we can go a little quicker for 4 pieces or more.

How many people can work on one piece?

One piece per person is ideal because each person gets the most experience and individual attention from the instructor that way. You can, however, work on one piece as a team of two and still have fun. In some cases, we have done lessons with three people working on one piece, but do not recommend since each person does not get much time with the material that way.

Can I make my own piece?

One piece per person bookings is also ideal because everyone gets their own piece to keep.

How old is the minimum age for glassblowing lessons?

We work with kids five years old and up. We tailor the experience to every person/group, however. For younger kids, we make it a little less hands-on to ensure their safety.

“That fish looks really hard; are you sure I can make that?”

Our lessons are one-on-one with you and a seasoned professional. Your success is guaranteed! We will help you every step of the way and make sure your piece comes out GREAT!

Do you make custom art pieces, lighting, or glass sinks to order?

Yes, we do! Ryan Staub has been making custom lighting, glass sinks, and artwork for his whole career. If you have an idea of something you’d like made in glass, please contact us, and we will be happy to help!

Are Glass Sinks really tough enough to use?

Ryan Staub has been making Glass Sinks for over 15 years. No one has ever broken one. Everyday use in a bathroom is fine for a glass sink. The sensitive parts, the bottom, and the lip are usually the thickest part of the piece.

How long does it take to make a piece?

That varies a lot depending on the complexity of the piece and on who is making it. Glassblowing is extremely difficult to master, and even professionals with over 20 years of experience are continually learning new things about the material. The longer someone blows glass, the more efficiently they can make their designs, but that efficiency comes at the expense of years of dedication. Many of Ryan Staub’s pieces consist of pre-made parts that take weeks, or sometimes longer, to prepare.

Do you host events or demonstrations?

Yes. We typically do a free demo one night in the week; please check our operating hours for which day. We also host glass blowing parties and private group events by appointment.
