Best Hand Blown Glass
Courtesy of Wichita Art Museum
Sure, everyone appreciates a good painting or a gripping story, but it's pretty boring to watch painters and writers at work. Not so with glassmakers. A trip to Pinzette Glass gains you access not only to the showroom, but also to the studio, where you can observe glassblowers gathering, rolling, and blowing glass into artful Zen-like pitchers, creamers, and vases in eye-poppingly vibrant colors. They aren't cheap, but if you purchase directly from the showroom, you might be able to get a second for somewhat less. Call for an appointment or just stop in if the door is open.
