  • Pay for your ornaments prior to making them in the gallery
  • Entering Studio you then will be directed into the studio where the glassblowers will call you up as the line processed to Help Create your glass piece
  • You select colors from our Six pre-selected color palettes of glass
  • You apply the colors to the Hot Molten Glass gather
  • Watch the glassblowing artists finish creating your ornament right before your very eyes.
  • Pick-up glass piece the next business day after 3:00 p.m. or have it shipped for an additional fee

Please Note:

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, we have three different options:

   (1) You may choose out of the Help Create color mixes and your artwork will be created for you.

   (2) You may choose the same type of art glass piece from Vetro’s gallery.

   (3) You may come back during a Traditional Help Create event and re-make your art glass piece!
