- 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 may choose a like item from the premade glass pieces in the gallery (3) you can schedule a time to come back to the Vetro Studio and re-make your art piece!
