Exciting Changes at Glassworks!


Flame Run's creative energy has come to Glassworks!
Flame Run occupies the hot shop, a welding shop, and operates a glass gallery and gift shop.

The Mark Payton Glass Center also continues to develop "edutainment" opportunities in the Walk-In Workshop, tours, flameworking experiences, and a gallery containing flameworked glass, flat glass and jewelry.

The tour takes about an hour and includes:

“Transformed by Light,” a short video highlighting the history and origins of glass art, the studio movement, and Glassworks.

The Mark Payton Glass Center - owned by Mark Payton, a self taught flameworker of 18 years. Watch the artists sculpt with glass using an oxygen/propane torch.

Flame Run – learn about the process and watch artists blow glass in its molten state.
