The Process:

  • You select colors from five per-selected mixes.
  • You apply the colors to the hot molten glass gather.
  • You heat the colors in the 2,000-degree furnace (14+ yrs).
  • You stay by the artist while he/she blows out your Glass Pumpkin.
  • Allow for approximately 15 min for check-in and 15 min for color selection and creating your hand-blown pumpkin.
  • Guests that are 18 years of age or under must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.
  • Due to the annealing process, pumpkins will not be available for Pick-up until the next business day after 3pm or have it shipped for an additional fee.

Please Note:

  • Pumpkins made on Saturday will not be available for pick-up until the following Tuesday after 3pm or any other day during gallery hours; the gallery is open Tuesday-Saturday 10am-6pm.
  • Due to the nature of glass, there is a possibility that your glass art piece could break or crack during the cooling process. If this happens, one of the gallery employees will call with two different options: (1) one of our glassblowers can re-make the glass art piece and you can pick it up or have it shipped (for an additional fee); (2) you can schedule a time to come back to the Vetro Studio and re-make your art piece!
  • Kids of all ages are welcome  to assist with color application.
  • You must be at least 14 years of age or older to reheat the glass.
